Rachael is part of Blacklash
Rachael Young is an award-winning artist and writer based between Nottingham and London. Her interdisciplinary performance practice exists on the boundaries of live art, dance and contemporary theatre. Her work creates space for intersectional realities to be explored and celebrated and alternative narratives and forms to evolve and be heard. 

Rachael was the inaugural winner of the Eclipse Award, which supported Edinburgh Fringe 2019 runs of NIGHTCLUBBING and OUT, where both shows were nominated for Total Theatre awards and Rachael was named the British Council’s Artist to Watch. 

Most recently Rachael’s writing was performed as part of a curated programme, My White Best Friend, at the Royal Court in 2020. Her work is presented widely across the UK and internationally including: The Place, The Yard, Skopje Pride, Live Collision (Dublin), Theatre de L’Usine (Geneva) and ImPulsTanz (Vienna International Dance Festival).
