Rachel Kauder Nalebuff explores new kinds of community through performance and writing. She is the editor of My Little Red Book (Twelve Books, 2009) and co-editor of The Feminist Utopia Project (Feminist Press, 2015) with Alexandra Brodsky. Her project The Bumps (PRELUDE 2017) is a durational play about waiting for an unknown future, made for a cast of pregnant actors who rotate through the production. Behind the scenes, the project creates a small economy for pregnant artists and invites us to imagine alternatives to the American workplace. Most recently, her original adaptation of The Birds (NYU Performance as Therapy Department commission, 2017) made for residents of a nursing home, creates a model for making theatre at the end of life. Rachel also runs 3 Hole Press, a small press for performance works in printed formats.
Her work has recently been supported and presented by PRELUDE, the BBC, the Steirischer Herbst Festival, the National Performance Network, the Skirball Cultural Center, the Hammer Museum, REDCAT, and the LA Department of Cultural Affairs.
She is currently working on her MFA in Erin Courtney and Mac Wellman's playwriting program at Brooklyn College.
