    Jerusalem-born singer-songwriter Avital Raz has made a name for herself singing politically engaging, strikingly original and fearless songs, to emerge as a distinctive and truly individual voice that speaks with a very real and potent self-expression.
    Avital studied at The School of Visual Theatre in Jerusalem, before embarking on a 20-year career as a singer-songwriter and musician. After completing degrees in Western Classical singing and composition in Jerusalem, she relocated to Varanasi (India) where she studied the sacred art of Dhrupad singing for six years under Professor Ritwik Sanyal. She has released seven albums of her own music and performed with acclaimed world music band Rafiki Jazz for three years. Five years ago, Avital adapted a controversial song into a show which toured widely. ‘My Jerusalem is Nothing short of Astonishing’ Exposed Magazine

    "In many traditional cultures, infertility is considered the woman's fault. Something shameful to never speak of and often, you can try a few more times and succeed and the painful memories of waking up soaked in blood will become a distant pain on the way to motherhood. But then some of us keep trying well into our forties, surgeries after surgeries, hormones, expensive treatments while acquaintances become grandparents."

    Avital Raz speaks about the personal themes of Unnatural Cycles.


    "It is precisely these types of projects, involving these types of people, in these types of theatres that make London what it is."
