Rebecca Schrader

Artist / Creative (Individual)

I am a performance artist, dancer, cellist, painter, and writer composing theatrical work for live audiences and film with sound, movement, and text in order to tell strange and beautiful stories about core human experiences like love, death, and solitude.

I direct Cloudgaze Productions, a group of multimedia artists collaborating on immersive theater, with Samuel Perry, Kat Adler, Joshua Ruder, and Ashley Kramer. I am also the registrar at the Northampton Community Music Center and a production intern for the School for Contemporary Dance & Thought. I graduated from Amherst College in 2021 with a BA in English Language and Literature.
