Hello, my name is Rachel and I’m going to be working with Exim as they’re Touring and Education Outreach Officer. Having recently moved to Plymouth from London, where I worked for Rambert, I am excited to embark on this new position with Exim at such an exciting time for the company.
Thanks to Exim’s successful Grants for the Arts application, I will be working closely with the Exim team to put together new tour dates, and education work for their new piece Etch.
Working with Exim, I will be helping them share their wonderful work, Etch, with audiences around the South West, and beyond! As well as looking for exciting new tour venues for the company to perform at, I will also be contacting local schools and dance groups to lead workshops and create curtain raisers to help people engage with the piece, contemporary dance, and inclusive practice within dance.
I am really looking forward to seeing the piece evolve during Exim’s upcoming research and development period, as well as being able to work with dancers and young people across the South West, and helping s many people as possible have the chance to access this innovative, engaging, inclusive work.
Touring and Education Outreach Officer
