My name is Rachel (Elizabeth Coleman). I am feels tricky, but we’ll try it anyway.
I am a being, a woman, a dancer and performance maker. I am earth and water, a writer and researcher, a film maker and photographer. I am probably many other things, but I am might lose its strength soon and we should make the words count.
My work sits at several intersections; between myth and now, between histories known and unknown, between bodies and landscapes. I feel the things I make to be tied to the different worlds around us; the personal, political, social, natural. Like the oldest willow trees
my work takes a strong stand within the ground but spreads out, reaching further, farther, finding new terrains to shelter.
I am incredibly lucky to have collaborated with an array of incredible beings, makers, peoples. Please see my Collaborators pages for more information.
Any ending here feels feeble, so perhaps we leave it at another ‘hello’; an opening. The possibilities are endless after all.
