The Omega Project

Glasswater Theatre presents
The Omega Project
created by the ensemble

as part of the 2012 Toronto Fringe Festival

Daniel and Lindsey met working on the biggest project in FLIP’s history: a documentary film about the 2011 uprising in Egypt called The Omega Project, and how the people of Egypt worked together to create a flourishing democracy from the sectarian violence that had apparently existed until then. Their work propelled FLIP (the Foundation for Lasting International Peace) to the forefront of the NGO community and helped to create a world-wide movement for non-religious peace initiatives.

Four years later, they’re back. Meeting at a FLIP membership meeting for the first time in a while, they’re talking about the project and what it meant to them, to FLIP, and to the world. Refreshments provided.

“The performance is highly interactive, thought provoking, intriguing and begs conversation to follow, so bring a friend or two or three and experience The Omega Project, a play unlike any you’re likely to see at Fringe this year.”
– Samantha Wu, Mooney on Theatre
