 Ravenna is a young artist, witch, and priestess. Dedicated to creating her art from the sacred acknowledgement of its foundation in ritual, she seeks to break down the barriers of artistic discipline to create something new and unprecedented through acts of spiritual devotion.  Her work is at it’s best, a collaboration between the body and its senses, performing on the body like a welcomed hallucination. She is the founder of internationally recognised artist collective Source Material, under which she premiered two notable original works: A Thousand Tongues (at the Theatre Olympics/European Capital of Culture in Wroclaw, Poland) and of Light in Reykjavik, Iceland, which garnered international attention, including encorsements from Marina Abramovic who mentored the project, and Björk, who listed Ravenna as an inspirational young artist in The Guardian after attending the premier. Also a sometime filmmaker, she has made music videos and short films with JFDR, Jodie Landau, Johanna Warren, K Á R Y Y N , and Sóley. She holds a BFA in Acting from the California Institute of the Arts, is currently pursuing a MFA in Live Performance at the Iceland Academy of the Arts, and has been a member of the Reclaiming community for 5 years, where she has been a student teacher and priestess in different areas of the west coast.  Reclaiming is a deeply sacred community to Ravenna, a place in which she sees leadership modeled with innovation and thoughtfulness, and feels privielged to grow, be of service in community, and aspire among an exceptional community.
