Nahid Khaki
Nahid Khaki is pleased to debut Khaki Gallery
Performance Project, a new continuing program of
performance, classes and workshops which began in
Janurary 2017  with “Dance-Away,” a collaborative
exhibition of dance performance in the newly renovated
gallery space in Boston.

By bringing dance, movement and performance to SOWA
community, and using dance and movement as tools for
promoting body awareness, self-expression and spiritual
healing, Nahid aims to initiate a process of art making
through communication and collaboration with the public.
The purpose of this project is not only to involve the
community in the process of art making but also to reject
the idea of art as a commodity which is to be consumed
by the general public rather than created or empowered
by the public.  Through dance and choreography the
participants are encouraged to have social interactions
enjoying a relational experience or relational aesthetics
while promoting individual body’s desire for freedom and
self-expression.
