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.
