Hello, morning people! We are proud to announce that the next speaker for CreativeMornings Johannesburg is the remarkable Nick Boraine. He’ll be speaking on “Rehearsing Forgiveness“, as part of a global series on Childhood.
Nick graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg in 1994 with an honours degree in drama. Since then he has been in countless aspect of performing, writing and directing for stage, television as well as film. As an actor Nick has performed in countless plays, films and television series both locally and internationally. Touring the world with the play Truth in Translation was a watershed moment for him on both a professional and personal level. Nick became fascinated by the relationship between, performing, and storytelling and their influence on breaking the revenge/vengeance cycle. Through countless workshops and interactions with other performers, musicians, artists, ex-combatants and children he saw endless possibilities to provoke a perceptual shift that might stop violence and promote dialogue.
Nick began work for the Global Arts Corps as an Assistant Artistic Director in March of 2011. Currently he is also working on three film projects – Mandela’s Gun, Book of Negroes and Black Sails.
The talk is set to happen at the Nicework offices on Friday the 24th of January, from 8:3- to 10am. Ticket bookings open next Monday (the 20th of January), but register here in the meantime so you’re ready to grab your seat. Don’t get left out in the cold.
