Screening two of her short films - Gold, a multiple award-winning short film about gymnasts, and The Assembly, a short film for Manchester International Festival/Sadler’s Wells about memories of singing in a choir – Rachel will also be discussing her new work in progress, They Tuck You Up Your Mum and Dad.

Following the screening there will be a post-show discussion and Q&A with Rachel, discussing issues such as the interweaving of fact and fiction, the progression of the genre, and the use of dance in her work.  Active audience participation is encouraged!
