Will Rawls is a writer, choreographer, and performer. Rawls creates solo and group works that turn around the idea of self and becoming. By placing the body into resonant encounters with other media and with architecture, Rawls cultivates the experiential nature and expanded potential of what choreography can be. Rawls’ recent projects focus on authorship, memory, blackness, and subjectivity, and he is currently in collaboration with writers Claudia Rankine and Homi K. Bhabha, and filmmaker John Lucas on What Remains, a performance premiering in April 2017 at Bard College. He is recipient of a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant 2015, the Casinos Austria 2016 Prix Jardin d’Europe, and a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Residency 2017. As an interpreter and performer, Rawls has worked with Marina Abramovic, Jerome Bel, Alain Buffard, Maria Hassabi, Xavier Le Roy, Tino Sehgal, and Shen Wei Dance Arts. As a teacher, he has been a Mellon Creative Campus Fellow 2015–2016 at Wesleyan University and an Arthur J. Levitt Artist-in-Residence at Williams College. His writing has been published by Art Forum, Triple Canopy, les presses du réel, The Museum of Modern Art, and Danspace Project.
