In Memory/Art/Dance (2022), Germond examines her life-long desire to combine multiple creative impulses, including journaling, dance, and visual art. The performance includes paintings, and drawings, along with a performed monologue and solo choreography. Using notebooks, small canvases, some projected via video, or framed and on the walls, spread throughout the space, Germond immerses viewers viscerally - allowing them to touch and engage with the art work and surround visuals.
Originally from Rhode Island, and the daughter of two painters, Rachel is a performer, dancer, teacher, choreographer, and visual artist. Her early training in art was at RISD summer school where her father was a professor. In 1986 she achieved a BFA in Photography and Printmaking at Cornell University's College of Architecture, Art and Planning. Based in New York City from 1986-1998, she presented her choreography at notable venues such as St. Mark’s Church Danspace, Dixon Place, and The Joyce Soho, amongst others. In 2000 she achieved an M.F.A. in Choreography from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and afterwards founded her Chicago-based company, RTG Dance. Since returning to New York in 2014, she has continued to perform and present multidisciplinary performances that incorporate visual art, dance, video, and photography. Rachel currently lives and works between Brooklyn, NY and the Monadnock region of New Hampshire. www.rachelthornegermond.com
