Raquel Meseguer

Unchartered Collective

I'm interested in widening access for people with invisible impairments, challenging the etiquette of our public spaces and collectively re-imaging how we use our public space.

Five booklets of A Crash Course in Cloudspotting hang from yellow cords of material in the style of Literature de Cordel. The booklets are white with blue text or designs in their centre.

A Crash Course in Cloudspotting

A Crash Course in Cloudspotting asks you to connect with the subversive act of lying down. It’s about public rest and acts of bravery we don't see. About scaling the distances and depths of human connection. …

Raquel co-founded Lost Dog in 2004 and co-directed all productions up to and including the 2011 Place Prize Winner ‘It Needs Horses’. I re-joined the company in 2015 as associate co-director on ‘Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me)’ nominated for a Southbank Sky Arts Award 2016. In 2017 she collaborated with Rachel Bagshaw as movement director on 'The Shape of the Pain' winner of a 2017 Fringe First Award and published by Oberon. She is currently associate artist on Lost Dog's new show 'Juliet + Romeo's Guide to Long Life and a Happy Marriage', which received 5 star reviews in The Guardian & Time out, and tours nationally & internationally in 2018 / 2019. .

Raquel stepped away from the world of theatre making between 2011 - 2015, to understand and come to terms with an increasingly disabling chronic pain condition. She become interested in creating immersive performance that explores chronic pain in 2016 developing Someone Should Start Laughing & A Crash Course in Clouspotting (the supervise act of horizontality). The latter received an Unlimited R&D award 2017 and will be presented at The South Bank Centre as part of the Unlimited Festival Sept 2018.
