What is OommoO
An acronym for ‘One of many, many of One’ – OommoO is a one woman theatre series that depicts the true life events of a 1st generation ImMigrant Lula Berhane, as she navigates the duality of two cultures, her Habesha (Eritrean/Ethiopian) heritage and British identity.
A modular live show, OommoO is presented with a cinematic sensibility interweaving language + customs with innovative high tech storytelling tools like the wearable tech MiMu gloves and stitches the story together with visuals+music+soundscape to teleport you to a different world. It is an emotionally visceral, poetic reflection of an experience unpacked through an Afro-Futuristic East African lens.
OommoO is neither a musical, drama or gig theater… It is a new kind of storytelling.
