performance sessions (goethe institute)
Omid's central research question delves into the potential of performance art as a vehicle for advancing social reform. Informed by Tania Bruguera's "Art Util" concept and Augusto Boal's "Theater of the Oppressed," his work proposes that performance art can establish a platform for dialogue and comprehension among individuals from diverse backgrounds. By prioritizing the collaborative creative process and the quality of interaction among participants, Omid's performance art endeavors confront issues of oppression and inequality. They aim to create meaningful experiences that have the potential to drive positive social change. His performance sessions underscore the importance of disrupting established methods and normative approaches to create new possibilities for social transformation.
