Questlab Network CHOREOGRAPHER 2018/2019
As Choreographer and Artistic Director of Pell Ensemble since 2012 Rebecca has developed and delivered digital dance performance, installations and engagement work in the UK & abroad. Recently Rebecca was one of 10 choreographers selected by Studio Wayne McGregor to take part in Questlab Network, a nationally significant program developing cross-disciplinary digital and dance practices. Her practice has included combining movement with live coding, generative projection, 360 sound, walking apps and interactive lighting. She was on The BENCH 2015/2016 and has been commissioned by 2Faced Dance, Wilton’s Strike, Spontaneous Combustion Festival, The Vaults, Athens Digital Arts Festival and London Borough of Culture.
Rebecca's interests are two fold, in her professional work to examine the shift in digital culture and its effect on our souls and society. In the engagement work to empower the next generation with knowledge to shape the digital future they would like to see. While Rebecca is not a coder she looks at creative ways to expand codes applications in collaboration with other artists. The experience of the body for audience and performer remain central to her work but she looks to the possibilities of digital interactions to create deeper, connection, engagement and intimacy.
Pell Ensemble's work is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
