About Gillian The Performer

Hello! I'm Gillian, a dancer, choreographer, and storyteller. I dance because I must; I perform because it is home. The stage is where I belong, and my native language is movement. I believe movement has an incredible power to speak across so many boundaries and borders, and it is my mission to create work that speaks to the common humanity in us. I want to share the stories and the lessons I've learned from living in very unexpected places (Cambodia, South Korea, and now Pakistan), working as a dancer and experiencing all levels of society.

My Patreon is kind of the backstage of the theatre of my life
. It's where I invite people who support me and want to help me do more of what it is I do to share and enjoy the raw, exciting, shifting landscape of things becoming, of ideas growing, of creation in action. My patrons see a side of the work that doesn't make it to the glossy, final, photoshopped finish of social media. 

Some nice things that people have said about my work:
 
"Beautiful mission to address through music, word, and dance!" 

(about Vida and The Void, a piece I performed last year) "This piece broke me. It gave me closure on losing a friend I didn't know I needed."

"Internationally recognized American artist Gillian Rhodes also performed her soulful performance on a mime which was quite different art for the audience and got highly admired due to its unique style. Gillian Rhodes was warmly welcomed by the audience and largely admired the contributions of arts council of Pakistan Karachi for the initiative of promoting performing arts in our country.
" - Art is the first line of defense against extremism, Biz Today Pakistan

"Absolutely beautiful performance."

"I found tears running down my face, and I don't even know why."


Where to find out more: I have two Youtube channels, one for tutorials and one for creative work (this includes playlists with music videos, interviews, and much more). You can read some of my written work and check my full CV on my official website. My social media is linked below - I am most active on instagram, @gillianrhodestheperformer.
