Rachael Thérèse Nolan has been an active member of the Melbourne ‘fringe’ visual and performing art scenes for over a decade, and her work continues to be influenced by her formal gymnastics, contemporary dance, physical theatre and visual arts training. The main focus of Rachael’s academic research and performance-making process is the phenomenological relationship between a live performing artist and a spectator. She is also exploring the intersection between a live performer and spectator-controlled digital handheld technology. She currently teaches Creative Arts at La Trobe University, Melbourne, and is a member of the curatorial team for Unlikely, the peer-review journal for The Centre Of Creative Arts. In addition to her solo performance making, Rachael is also a company member of Hybrid Dance, Melbourne.
