Hello! Rife Magazine ceased publishing new work in July 2022.

We've kept the magazine online as an archive and hope you'll still continue to enjoy all of its contributions from the last 8 years.

The Rife Team

Rachael Clerke

Rachael Clerke is an Edinburgh-born Bristol-based maker working both collaboratively and independently to create performances, websites, drawings, writing and film. She tries to make work that is political and funny at the same time, and wants to make people swear. In a good way.

She once received a ‘review’ that read simply – ‘Performance art? Either learn to paint or sculpt or eff off.’

Going SOLO: Dancing By Yourself

Rachael Clerke tells us about SOLO, and a burgeoning new scene putting the focus on solo dance performance.
