Arisika Razak is an African-American performance artist whose work is dedicated to reclaiming the power and sacredness of the female body. Her performance art is equally grounded in the cross cultural tradition of spiritual dance, the paradigm of empowerment and transcendence arising out of the birthing process, and her 25 year study of African, Asian, Native American and Neo-Pagan Religious Systems.
Arisika has performed both nationally and internationally, as a solo dancer, choreographer, guest lecturer and workshop leader. A partial list of credits includes: The Michigan Women's Music Festival, Women of Power Conference, Switzerland; Atlanta Earth Expo; West Coast Lesbian Festival, Juk San International Performing Arts Festival, Korea; Spirit Rock Meditation Center, and breast cancer and midwifery conferences throughout the U.S. Her work is featured in the films; A Place of Rage and Fire Eyes. She is also on staff at the California Institute of Integral Studies in the Women's Spirituality Department.
