Abstract: Dear Institution is a presentation in the form of a love letter addressed to an anonymous academic institution. It light-heartedly describes a love/hate relationship between arts practice and academia from the personal perspective of a practice-based PhD student who flirts with both.

Abstract: This article investigates the ontological significance of the voice, speech and listening within a theatrical context. Through an analysis of two performances; Societas Raffaello Sanzio’s ‘Giulio Cesare’ and Roger Bernat’s ‘Domini Públic’ it considers what might be in the voice that goes beyond language and that which is on the edge of understanding that might bring about alternative ‘ways of sensible being’ (Rancière 2009, 10).
