About Rachel: I had the privilege of working as an interpreter and choreographer for The Dracula’s Garden Series presented by Voirelia: Psychology, Philosophy and Dance Hub. This is an on-going interdisciplinary collaboration that “explores the universe of Gothic literature: its stories, creatures, and themes.” In this class we will be utilizing a few of the movement tasks that we explored during this creative process.
