OUR CARNAL HEARTS
Rachel Mars is a performance maker borrowing from theatre, live art, and comedy. Her work looks at the idiosyncratic cultural and political constructs that inform the way we are together, as people, just trying to figure it all out. Her recent obsessions have included the rhythms of jokes well told, Roller Derby, and the language of 80s pop.
Most recently she has developed work in the UK with The Royal Court Theatre, Tate Modern, Fuel Theatre, Ovalhouse London, and The Wellcome Trust, and undertaken residencies at The Orchard Project and Asylum, New York; Playwrights’ Workshop, Montreal and Cove Park, UK.
She has shown work at festivals internationally including at WOW, London; Wildside, Montreal; and Hot! NYC.
Rachel is a regular on BBC Radio’s ‘Pause for Thought’ and has written for The Stage, The Guardian, and The Jewish Chronicle.
