The company proposes new theatrical codes to the spectators and explores how the theatre can operate in today’s world. It is searching and testing the acceptable principles of theatre. OMMA makes street theatre and performs in non-theatrical spaces, in old storehouses, abandoned buildings, old schools, in Greece and abroad. Omma Studio presents indoor and street performances, does site-specific projects, offers educational events, open discussions, workshops, exhibitions, and has translated and published theatrical texts and generally organises any kind of event that contributes to cultivation and empowerment of people.
The theatre company is revolutionising the relationship between audience and theatre by utilising performances to create participatory meetings, not a spectator activity. The Teatr Brama ensemble is a diverse group dedicated to a common artistic goal, researching the heights and depths of emotion, recalling heritage and reacting to the realities of life. As a cultural and educational association, Teatr Brama utilises non-formal and informal educational methods to empower people to use art and creativity to improve their lives and their world.
