Rachel Kauder Nalebuff explores news 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 play The Bumps (2017) is a cyclical play about the unknown, written for a cast of pregnant performers who rotate through the production. The Seed Eaters (2017) a meditation on endings made with Emily Mast, can be performed by any three people who are different from one another. A Quarter Century (ongoing) features people over 65 and under 25 swapping language and insights. 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.
Currently, she is writing an original adaptation of The Birds by Aristophanes for residents of the Hebrew Home for the Aged (NYU Performance as Therapy commission), and working on her MFA in Erin Courtney and Mac Wellman's playwriting program at Brooklyn College.
Rachel also directs 3 Hole Press, a small press bringing new audiences to new plays in printed formats.
