Rebecca is an actress, writer and gardener. She studied acting at Rada and Horticulture with the RHS at Bristol Botanic Gardens. She is a co-founder of theatre company Triongl, artistic associates at Chapter, and together they write and perform new work for the stage that tours Wales. Her residency was based in Taff Wells and explores out habituation with consumerist food systems.
Her interest with food began when she first started growing her own food, realizing that eating was a daily interaction with nature. The Harvest Festival was a symbolic focus of her project, being the day that that her community traditionally gave thanks to nature for the food that would sustain them. However, this reflects that none of that really means anything in the semi urban, non-religious community that now lives there with with no real link to the agricultural land around them. She was particularly interested in the fact that the heart of the village was now the local co-op where food was brought in from around the world wrapped in plastic and had no association with the land around the village.
