Rachael & Leslie
With over a decade of creating and performing together, Rachael Lincoln and Leslie Seiters explore the potentials of the duet form, mining the format to reveal the complex intersections of how and who we are in relation to what or whom we meet. Their collaborative work integrates influences from contemporary dance, visual art, literary fiction, and theater, evoking moments when movement becomes language, objects become characters, and everyday logic is suspended. Rather than relying on a known process or style, Lincoln and Seiters continue to meet in a collaborative process that uses their long history on the stage and in the studio together to find new ways of working that are specific to the project at hand. This approach supports the company’s mission to present deeply investigated material, resulting in work with a sense of history, internal logic and integrity.
