1 to 1 Performance Facilitation

Waking Up Iranian American

Languages, histories, and identities evolve through forming relationships. One-to-one performance facilitation invites one participant member to have an experience on their own with a performer. These encounters are site-specific, which means the place or location of the performance is conceptually connected to the theme and topic of dialogue.

One-to-one performance facilitation invites one participant member to have an experience on their own with a performer. These encounters are site-specific, which means the place or location of the performance is conceptually connected to the theme and topic of dialogue.

Waking Up Iranian American is a series of four one-to-one performances focused on the ways languages, histories, and identities evolve through facilitated dialogue. Participants engage in cultural exchange, which leads to discussions and activities that counter nationalistic and racist practices. 

The participants’ experiences during the one-to-one performances are documented through various artworks, including textiles, self-made identity cards, photographs, videos, sound art, scripts, and choreographic scores.

These artworks initiate group conversations during exhibitions or public events and serve as content to structure performative interventions. such as, Formulations of Assembly, Move with US, and Around the Table.
