[Poet Spotlight] Jai Arune Ravine
Jai Arun Ravine is a writer, dancer and dance writer currently based in Philadelphia. As a mixed race, mixed gender and mixed genre artist, their work arises from the simultaneity of text and body and takes the form of video, performance, comics and handmade books. I've enjoyed interviewing Jai Arun in the past and always look forward to what they've written next.
Their second book THE ROMANCE OF SIAM (Timeless, Infinite Light 2016) is a subverted travel guide that consumes and regurgitates Orientalism, the tourist archive and white desire.
