Rachel Johnson Mentoring 2017

Working with mentor Charlotte Vincent during the r&d phase of Trapped, Rachel and her team developed new movement material, explored the authenticity of existing material and interrogated ways to differentiate between the three male performers and their distinct roles in the work.

Charlotte also guided Rachel through an intense process of deconstructing and rebuilding tasks, equipping her with clearer ideas around instruction based improvisation, as well as discussing the compositional structure of the production and the choreographic approach going forward to gather material of most use from her experienced collaborators.

Rachel is grateful to Preston Manor, part of Brighton & Hove Museums, for providing their cellar space and enabling Charlotte to mentor on site.

Trapped toured in 2018.
