Rachael Dichter is a San Francisco based performer and choreographer. She works often with others and sometimes alone. She makes work about closeness. About the shortest distance and shortening the distance between things – between people. She grew up on the ocean and in the mountains and forests of Northern California, training and performing as a ballerina and majoring in Dance and Art History at Mills College. She now lives and works between the San Francisco Bay Area and Berlin and for four years co-curated the San Francisco based live art festival THIS IS WHAT I WANT.
