ARTE: Julia Raynham

We are happy to have a new contributor for ARTE: we've been following Andre S. Belcher and his interesting observations in contemporary art for a while now. When it comes to art Andre admits that he is only concerned with "The naked and unabashed truth."

Global Arts: Visual Arts - Experimental Film/Video

Julia Raynham
Born 1966 (Cape Town, South Africa)

Julia Raynham’s work melds choreography, theatre, poetry, video, sound, performance and improv, in a distinctly experimental vein. After studying architecture and music, she trained extensively as a sangoma (link beeen the ancestral and human worlds, specialist of herbal medicine, counsel in matters of psychological disturbance in Zulu, Swazi, Xhosa and Ndebele communities of Southern Africa). An ex-member of key collectives on the South Africa scene (Honeymoon Suites; The Mothertongue Project) and a writer (We Tell Our Old Songs: San Music of Southern Africa, with Marlene Winberg, 2004; ilikemagazine), she is the founder of Resonance Bazaar, a multidisciplinary platform for the development of artistic partnerships. Among her most renowned works are: Return to Traveller (The Edge, Cape Town, 2009); 21st Century Animal (7th edition of Rencontres Chorégraphiques de l’Afrique et de l’Océan Indien, 2008); and A New Body Will Be Assembled...More Brilliant Than Before (Below:Video)
