The first instalment of CreativeMornings 2014 talks is coming up this Friday, 24th January. The global theme for this month is Childhood, and the Johannesburg sponsors, Nicework, have once again selected a fascinating speaker…
Nick Boraine graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg in 1994 with an honours degree in drama. Since then he been involved in countless aspect of performing, writing and directing for stage, television as well as films. As an actor he has performed in numerous different productions, both locally and internationally. He’s also an accomplished voice-over artists with thousands of credits to his name.
Touring the world with the play Truth in Translation was a watershed moment on both a professional and personal level. Nick became fascinated by the relationship between performance 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 Nick is also working on three film projects – Mandela’s Gun, Book of Negroes and Black Sail.
