Avital Raz: Unnatural Cycles - A Ghost Story

Avital Raz: Unnatural Cycles - A Ghost Story


Lancaster Arts are delighted to welcome back Avital Raz (My Jerusalem in 2021) with her moving new show that explores the haunted conversations between two generations of women. 

There’s a growing dark cloud above the Rosenberg house. Two women – one dead, one alive – need to reconcile their differences to remove looming catastrophe and let in new life… 

Raz dreamt about her grandmother, and through found tapes, listened to her speak about her experiences surviving the Jewish Holocaust. 

Unnatural Cycles – A Ghost Story is a nuanced exploration of infertility and faith. Told in song, live looped audio and film, it holds the weight of both present and generational trauma in the body of a woman reckoning with inherited pain and the desire to bear a child.  

Singer-songwriter Avital Raz developed this work in the Nuffield Residency earlier this year. She has made a name for herself singing politically engaging, and strikingly original songs, to emerge as a distinctive and truly individual voice.
