Rachel Rose Reid was raised on a hybrid of immigrant oral tradition, English folk culture and concrete jungle. As a storyteller and spoken word artist she regularly bridges between all three worlds.
She has performed her work at the Barbican (UK), Nuyorican Poets Café (USA), and throughout the UK spoken word and storytelling scenes.
She has been Artist in Residence for Dickens 2012 Bicentenary, the Saison Poetry Library, and has written and performed commissioned work for Billy Bragg, BBC Radio 3, Old Vic New Voices and the Royal Shakespeare Company.
RRR loves collaborations and has created work with a diverse range of artistic partners including the Roundhouse Experimental Choir, UK hip hop group Dizraeli & the Small Gods.
