It’s day number 9 of our countdown and with 17 days to go the countdown focus this Sunday is artist and senior Lecturer in dance, Rachel Krische.
Dr Rachel Krische is an Independent Dance Artist and Senior Lecturer in BA Dance and MA Choreography at Leeds Beckett University. With a professional career spanning 27 years, she has made work, taught and performed extensively, both nationally and internationally, collaborating with over 30 artists such as La Ribot, Wendy Houstoun, Deborah Hay, Matthias Sperling and Siobhan Davies.
Rachel will be sharing her work Rach Does Dancing which is a performative lecture disguised as a dance performance. Or maybe it’s the opposite.
Following on from her own slog through the doctoral process, she attempts (but of course might fail) to reveal that an artistic doctorate in dance can be a vehicle to support a universal equality between words and movement – equalising the value of movement for the word inclined and words for the movement inclined.
