Rachel Thorne Germond presents A Story of Sorts, which  intersects her inner choreographic life with her outer world through photography and videography of nature and urban life.

Rachel Thorne Germond’s multidisciplinary performances incorporate dance, video, and photography. Her dances employ a deft range of choreographic strategies to create ambiguous juxtapositions and new languages. A graduate of Cornell University’s College of Architecture, Art and Planning, where she studied printmaking and photography, Germond has been teaching, performing, and choreographing for over 20 years. Her dance training includes intensive study of Klein Technique with Barbara Mahler and with such notable teachers as Mary Anthony, Anna Sokolow, Merce Cunningham, Pedro Alejandro, Tere O’Connor, and Nancy Topf. In 2000 she received an MFA in choreography from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. From 2001 to 2010 she was based in Chicago, where she formed her nonprofit dance company RTG Dance. From 2010 to 2014 she taught dance at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA, and was a founding member of the performance collective ArtPile. In the spring of 2014 she returned to Brooklyn.
