Volume 3.1, Spring 2006

"Harmonies of the Soul"

Music and dancing are a significant part of religious practice and
spiritual expression. The Baylor Journal of Theatre and Performance
seeks submissions for its upcoming issue dedicated to the topic of the
place of music and movement in faith-based performances. Religious
rituals have often contained significant musical and dance components.
How do these activities help negotiate the place of religion in culture?
How do matters of spiritual faith, philosophy, and practice permeate the
dramatic stage? We are especially interested in articles that address
music and movement related to a variety of faith/spiritual traditions
from around the world. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

* The use of music and dance/choreographed movement in the
religious rituals of different faiths and cultures

* Plays that explore the use of music and dancing for spiritual

* Plays that use music and dance to explore a religious group's
history or identity.

* The role of music and dance in any other historical
moment/culture where the religious establishment played a significant
role in dramatic production


The journal seeks scholarly articles, book and performance reviews,
interviews, play scripts, and biographical profiles (of less-known but
significant figures) related to the featured topic. These can be
submitted in electronic format only to the editor Carolyn Roark at Inquiries regarding submission and subscription may be
