This article looks at how one might bring together Steven Connor's notions of the 'vocalic body' and 'vocalic space', an understanding of the voice as existing on the tactile or haptic register, Laura Marks' theories of haptic videography and haptic cinema and Juhanni Pallasmaa's concept of a haptic architecture, to understand how voice and light might dance together, and indeed become gesture, in a reaching fashion, towards and with audiences. The article makes reference to work on Bonenfant's performance Beacons.
