About Rivkah French Choreography

Hello! I'm so glad we found each other here. This page is a platform for me to engage on a deeper level with my audience while building a community of supporters, collaborators, and friends. Your monthly support, at whatever level is comfortable for you, will help me fund the projects I care most deeply about--everything from live dance/multimedia performances, empowering local community events, film projects, and public workshops. It's giving me a way to sustainably create my work without being at the mercy of grant funding or government support. The best part is that it will free my time up enough to share behind-the-scenes exclusive personal content with YOU, dear patron!

My Patreon supporters have helped me so far to...

  • Archive and share numerous live performances and dance films from the past 15 years.
  • Create multiple dance technique, improvisation, and choreography break-down videos.
  • Share personal reflections and experiences on topics including health, wellness, and current events.
  • Participate in interviews and host masterclasses with Dance Source Houston and Dance Houston.
  • Create, develop, and film METANOIA, a solo dance film shot in a cemetery, presented at Barnstorm Dance Festival.
  • Promote my recent dance film Concrete Flow and submit it to national and international film festivals.
  • Shoot three distinct sets of photoshoots in a series exploring body paint, long-exposure effects, and androgynous, queer-positive themes.
  • Begin exploring and performing as my new genderqueer drag persona Androzene.
  • Finish my new living room dance space Capron House Studio so I have a place to choreograph, rehearse, and hold classes.
  • Start a biweekly queer-positive dance class series in the studio.
  • Perhaps best of all, due to Patreon members' generosity I have been able to share my studio with the Houston dance community at drastically discounted rental rates.

Here is my fancy shmancy bio and some extra links: 
Rivkah French Choreography embodies freedom through movement -- Breaks conventions of traditional dance, gender roles and societal norms -- Merges multiple dance styles with powerful themes and innovative technology

Rivkah French is an award-winning, queer-identifying contemporary dance choreographer in Houston, TX. French’s 20+ year career has led her to a place of expressing profound ideas eloquently through choreographic practice, educating the public while furthering the field of Queer Dance Theory, and being a leader that fulfills a vision of LGBTQ+ empowerment. French is currently focused on creating new movement techniques that fuse global dance styles such as Asian and African dance with contemporary Western techniques, and developing both spaces and experiences that foster self-expression in the LGBTQ+ community. Rivkah’s career exemplifies her endless belief in the transformational power of art on individuals and society at large.
