Rachel Perks

Art Forms: Fiction, Performance Art, Writing

Residency Year: 2018

Rachel Perks is a freelance, Melbourne based performer and writer whose work investigates feminist futures through the lens of speculative fiction. Rachel has a long-standing creative partnership with Bridget Balodis under the company ‘Double Water Sign’.

During their residency together, Perks and Bridget Balodis worked on ‘End Of Life’, a theatre work for two performers exploring climate change, the impending water crisis and toxic masculinity. The artists used their time together at Bundanon to research the ideas of the work, fleshing them out and finalising a first draft. The work was presented by Melbourne Theatre Company at South Bank Theatre in March 2020.
