Raquel Meseguer Zafe
Raquel’s work straddles theatre, dance, installation, performative conversations and photo-documentary. She identifies as dis-abled, and works with rest and horizontality as creative impulses.
Raquel founded Unchartered Collective in 2016 to create theatrical encounters that explore the lived experience of an invisible disability like chronic pain. Her project A Crash Course in Cloudspotting is an installation & performance, an app, a community and a digital archive for the 300 + stories gathered about people’s attempts to rest in public. The work is supported by ACE, Unlimited, Coventry UK City of Culture, Mousonturm, Fabrica, PMStudio and MAYK. In 2019 an early iteration of the piece toured Mexico, with British Council support.
Raquel also co-founded Lost Dog dance and was Associate Artist on the award winning productions Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me), and Juliet + Romeo. She was also nominated for a 2023 Olivier Award (Outstanding Achievement in Dance) for her Dramaturge on Ruination, and leads on the companies creative Audio Description.
Raquel is a recipient of recipient of a Bristol City Council Originators Award for Towards a Restful City (2022), a BAC / Necessity Fund commission for The Cloudspotters Bookclub (2021), and a 2020 PMStudio Future Themes grant for ‘Crip Tech & Belonging’.
