Rachel Nwokoro is a Cross-Disciplinary Storyteller based in London.

Rachel is a young black woman of Nigerian heritage, specifically belonging to the Indigenous people of Biafra.

And she loves telling stories.

Earlier in her career, as she explored acting, directing and writing, she felt uncomfortable with the pressure put on her by the arts industry to choose a single path and specialise. It echoed the narrow-eyed representation she found of herself in popular culture. She then realised that she alone had the power to reclaim and shape her own narrative through art.

 
   "The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story."  - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Rachel is dedicated to experimenting across diverse disciplines in order to discover the awkward, irregular and miraculous shapes that hide within our stories.

We are uncontainable creatures.
