Rebecca Pappas makes projects that address the body as an archive for personal and social memory. Her work has toured nationally and internationally and she has received residencies from Yaddo and Djerassi, and funding from the Indiana Arts Commission, the Mellon Foundation, the Zellerbach Family Foundation, The Clorox Foundation, and Choreographers in Mentorship Exchange (CHIME). For four years she served as an Assistant Professor of Dance at Ball State University where she emphasized the role of dance in global discourse, and labored to cultivate curiosity and inquiry as tools for citizenship.
