The Still Point

In November 2010 Rachel was in residency at Yorkshire Dance and invited Nina Wehnert (Germany), Lilly Picts (London) and Tamara Ashley (London) to join her in researching Contact Improvisation for performance.

The group’s research was into creating performance centred around contact improvisation that is watchable and communicates with an audience. There was morning class each day, research sharings at Yorkshire Dance and Independent Dance and performances at Seven Arts and The Bluecoat, Liverpool. The Seven Arts performance was accompanied by live music from Seth Bennett (Double Bass), Oliver Dover (Saxophone) and Alice Eldridge (‘Cello)
