About Dhira Rauch:
Dhira Rauch makes new theater with old things. She has performed throughout New York (Galapagos, Danspace, Ontological Theater, Brooklyn Lyceum, Heliopolis, Collective Unconscious, 80 St. Marks, etc), on giant boats in San Francisco (WePlayers), and in various media and mediums in Scotland, Los Angeles and Kansas City. In the interest of asking the questions with no marks, Dhira has led paratheatrical research in Iceland, eaten popcorn nearing the speed of light, and corrupted academic conferences by transforming podiums into performative slinkies. She is deeply connected to the performance of food, and sometimes moonlights as a sushi chef, performing the precision of the palate with an extremely large knife. She holds a Masters in Creative Inquiry from EPI at New College and a BFA from Tisch Experimental Theater Wing. Dhira currently curates events and happenings in Industry City and runs a Creative Residency program in New Jerusalem, PA, through Holes in the Wall Collective, a curatorial organization merging people/art/ideas and materials, where she is the co-founder and co-director.
