I think one of the reasons the duet, Untitled, performed in 2018 at the Exchange Choreography Festival, did not feel finished to me was because I never really got to the stage where I was reconciling my performance choices with the choreography. Sometimes that changes a few details of the choreography but usually not much for me, however, the performance choices solidify the concept and piece. If I get a chance to really delve into the performance process it feels more whole to me. It maybe just had one more block left. If I had another shot at it, though, I'd only perform it with Jessica Vokoun, the original co-choreographer. The experience would be different with someone else and process bore from the beginning. Regardless of these thoughts that a bit longer with the piece would have changed its perception of "completeness" for me, each time I watch the video of our performance, I'm satisfied. There was something beautiful there and we danced it together. ~ Rachel

I'm a Christ-follower, passionate about moving in truth/love and intellectual rigor through all things faith + art. A professional Dance Artist and fancying myself an amateur Christian Apologist, I’m committed to moving in the liminal space between catastrophic reverence of God and a quaking humility that intentionally keeps the tremors of Grace close at hand.
