performative figuration & somatic activism
Tomaz Simatovic is a performance artist, choreographer, dancer and pedagogue. In his artistic practice he is focusing on socially and politically sensitive themes often capturing imagination of the spectator or participant for the absurd, the banal, and the ordinary. He is generally interested in the notion and question of participation in and out of the context of performance art. Tomaz is creating stage works as well as developing hybrid formats of live art, often a confluence of performative, somatic, conceptual, interactive and participatory approaches to performance. Interested in socially or politically engaged art he works inter-and transdisciplinary, developing work through performance, dance, choreography, writing, and workshops.
