Rachel Weekley's directing style is deeply founded on group dynamics and devising.
Working with the cast to craft a general frame work that tells the story of the piece. From that frame work Weekley guides the cast through techniques from Neutral Mask Work and Viewpoints and even Martial Arts to explore and develop the physical life of the piece and the characters.
Weekley believes that play and joy are some of our greatest tools to delving into our deepest most grounded movement styles. Connecting the breath, the body, the text and each other to create truly engaging group work.
