RACHEL MARS + GREG WOHEAD
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.
Greg Wohead is a writer, performer, and live artist based between London and Los Angeles, originally from Texas. He makes theatre performances, one-to-one pieces and audio work. His work often orbits around larger-than-life American icons, for better or worse. Recently he has been preoccupied with surrogates, re-enactments and queerness.
He has shown and developed new work in the UK at places like Battersea Arts Centre, Bristol Old Vic, Mayfest, Forest Fringe, and The Yard, where he is an Artistic Associate. He has also presented and developed work in other countries at places like MC Theater (Amsterdam), Orchard Project (New York), MAKE (Ireland), Bios (Athens), and LAX Festival (Los Angeles).
