This article uses in-depth performance descriptions to engage in what Donna Haraway terms the ‘view from a body’ (1988: 589). I frame my practice-led research in performance art by scoring and writing through four selected performances: Nape (2013), Scaw (2014), Mean (2016) and Faults (2019). These performance descriptions are presented as performance documentation providing insight to an established practice in performance art that is language-oriented. This writing is both descriptive and autobiographical and explore methods and tasks that use the vocal-body as ‘writing with the voice’ and ‘live writing’ over extended duration. These texts position the creation of language-oriented performance art from within, expanding and reframing my own performances that bring new understandings on how we read, witness and experience experimental writing practice in performance.
