Amaara Raheem is a Sri Lankan born Australian grown dance-artist who lived in London for fifteen years, and is now based in Black Range (regional Victoria). Her artforms are writing, choreography and performance. Her work takes multiple modes including live events, video installation, sound and text, and is presented most often in galleries, museums and non-stage spaces. Drawing from choreography and performance to critically examine body and site Amaara’s practice is generated through multiple belongings to place, unfixed sense of belonging and loss of mother tongue. The work considers how a brown, female body is written upon, as well as writes into histories of landscape, performance and art.
