Rich performed his work at REDCAT Studio in fall 2018, and at Coachella this year with artist serpentwithfeet. Last year, he danced with Sudan Archives on the Coachella stage. He was also featured in the New York Times in July 2018 as one to watch in Los Angeles. Rich showed work at Los Angeles Dance Project’s Choreographic Residency in May and curated a performance event called BITE at Vortex LA in September; his career trajectory indicates that he will be an artist in several forms.

Rich plans “to challenge the unchallengeable, move the unmovable while wearing the unwearable.” He aims “to craft trauma into triumph using movement and design as an instrument for healing, pleasure and pain.”
