A composer and cellist, Rachel Burman founded the Opéra FOE company (Free Opera Ensemble) in 2011. As the the Artistic Director of the company, she works to combine her works for the cello, pedal loop and voice, with choreography centered on gestures. Her creation of Notre Damn (Théâtre La Chapelle, 2014), was praised for the audacity of her artistic approach.

Rachel Burman has participated as a soloist and composer in numerous events, shows and performances, including L’État d’urgence by ATSA; Les incendiares by André Fournelle; Flora ou le temps partagé Flora at Théâtre la Chapelle, and with the electro-acoustic musician Pierre Dostie at the Théâtre du Marais and at the Jardins du précambrien. As a cellist for the Ensemble Mruta Mertsi since 2004, Rachel has had the opportunity to participate in numerous events conceived by André Pappathomas, including, Chœur et chorégaphes at the Agora de la danse in 2011 and État Mixte (Montréal/Nouvelles Musiques, 2013 — SMCQ). As part of a trio with Pappathomas and the mezzo-soprano Anne Julien, she will perform in six Maisons de la culture this year, presenting Poèmes de detentions et autres contres, a musical and literary performance piece based on the poetic works of Claude Gauvreau.
