Amaara Raheem

Amaara Raheem’s practice of choreography and performance is shaped by her history of migration. Born in Sri Lanka, grown up in Melbourne, she lived fifteen years in London, and is now based part-time in Melbourne and part-time in the unceded lands of the Djab Wurrung people, otherwise known as Black Range in rural Victoria, Australia. In her life and work Amaara practices multiple belongings, uniting experiences, skills, and efforts with others to develop new tools for transformation and decolonization. As a solo and collaborative performing artist Amaara uses autobiography, humor, and fiction to interrogate subjectivity. Her work takes different forms such as text, video, live events, installation, and more recently, weaving.
