Drawing on Emma Cocker's Re: Writing 1993-2009 as a point of departure, Re- (RITE) is a collaborative reading where Rachel Lois Clapham and Emma Cocker repeat, rework, rewrite, reread and react, whilst responding to and relocating ideas generated from, through and in relation to RITE. The reading presses on two writers - and two writing practices- coming together, whilst focusing on the tension between the improvised and rehearsed, and on the play between the visible and invisible, or public and private states of not knowing within the performed act of writing.

Re - is a performance reading, commissioned by ‘In a word’, and developed collaboratively by Rachel Lois Clapham and Emma Cocker. It is an iterative work which responds and is reworked in relation to the specificity of an invitation to perform (text). Other iterations of the work can be found here, here and here.
