The British choreographer and dancer Raquel Meseguer is this year's Tanzfestival Rhein-Main resident artist. "I have an invisble impairment theat means I need to lie down (a lot). I lie down on trains, on benches, in galleries and in theaters. Sometimes I get kick back. And sometimes I get moved on. I thought I might be part of a smal neurodiverse crew who needs to lie down throughout the day. But it turns out it's a pretty big crew.
During her residency, Meseguer will continue developing her new piece, Rest Room. It tells the story of peoples’ attempts to rest in public. Her process will also continue to work on the Turning Toward methodology she is currently developing with dance artist Sarah Hopfinger. Meseguer will offer an insight into her work process in an informal studio sharing. The sharing will be a relaxed event: it will offer a variety of places to sit, lie down and stand, in a stress-free and low-impact sensory space.
