Racoco Productions are fantastic excavations of ordinary things. Artistic director Rachel Cohen and performers collaborate frequently with composers and visual artists; movement-theater projects with composer Chris Becker and visual artists Olek and Patty Rosenblatt have been funded by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, the American Music Center, and Meet the Composer. The company's If the Shoe Fits was listed by The New York Times as a NYC dance highlight of 2005 and was presented in 2006 at the World Financial Center. Racoco Productions (and its spin-off, Racoco + the It Girls), was a company-in-residence at Galapagos Art Space in 2006-2008.
