Performer and maker of multidisciplinary shows and short film
Waterford, Ireland


Based in Waterford, Rachel is a performer and maker of multidisciplinary shows and short films. She is a keen collaborator and works across the fields of circus, dance, film and theatre. Currently a participant on the 8th International PanPan Mentorship programme, she is researching a new show and is a recipient of Dublin Theatre Festival's Futures commission 2021. Her latest short film Marian was selected by AEMI to be screened at Gaze Film Festival 2020 and her show Losing Your Body won the Wild Card Award at Dublin Fringe Festival 2019 and was nominated for an Irish Times Award for Best Movement Direction. Despite cancellations 2020 had some highlights including receiving an Arts Council Dance Bursary, (virtual) Hot Desker residency at Dublin Fringe and Firkin Crane's ReFramed Bursary.


I was selected with my colleagues in CREATION 21/22, a truly unique programme which was created for performing artists at all stages of their careers and across a range of disciplines (dance, theatre, circus, spectacle, performance art, street arts), to develop their practice, network, learn and showcase work. It will include in-person collaboration opportunities in Ireland, as well an international residency in 2022 The project offers artistic development opportunities through mentoring, coaching, residencies and ‘in-progress’ presentation opportunities as part of Carlow Arts Festival, Dublin Dance Festival, National Circus Festival and Danseur Festival. This project is an opportunity to deeply collaborate with artists from various performing art forms and areas of experience. This residency is specifically focussed on performing artists in the East and Southeast region of Ireland, as well as European partners. It will be designed hand in hand with makers from the Theatre, Dance, and Circus/Street Art/Spectacle worlds to ensure it is delivering to the participating artists what they need at this time. The project is flexible and will focuses on creating space to support artists in the ways they currently need.
