Praxis puts the importance and emphasis on human activities and actions. In fact, Praxis puts a practical and active human, as opposed to Descartes’s all-knowing and all familiar subject
We are living in a society which is suffocating by the absolute ideas and we are imprisoned in this situation and we have no way to get free. Praxis Group consists of three main members: Toomaj Daneshbehzadi, Camelia Ghazali, and Reza Ghaziani.
We have gathered together to oppose the Mongolic absolutes. Our theatrical perspective is based on twenty century’s experiences with respect to all artistic areas including fashion industry, painting, sculpture, and other technical and physical theatrical achievements.
The term “Praxis” was chosen for the group as we believe that this is the human action in history which should form the “ideas”. We specifically meant the theories of German philosopher, Karl Marx. We authenticate “experiencing” and we think human experiences should modify and clarify his beliefs- whatever belief that has been shaped through history.
