In this conclusion, we use Found Poetry to re-present the words of the authors of this special edition. Found poetry is an arts-based research method used to analyse, review and re-present research data differently and engagingly. We use it here as a deliberate strategy to resist “joining-the- dots” for you the reader, by instead providing an offer to listen to the echoes of the papers in the form of found poetry. We do this to underline the interpretative dimension of performance. What is offered in dramaturgical form can be read in as many ways as there are individuals engaged watching a performance or each other or both. As flagged in the introduction, the autoethnographic approach of the authors is a feature of this edition as is the temporal dimension. Rooted in place, the authors learn backwards in order to let us as readers look forwards. These voices are distinct and any attempt to coral them into categories or overlay patterns would run the risk of detracting from, rather than adding to, what they are saying.
