Out for a Walk

Out for a Walk

Performed @ Matzoh Factory
7th Visibility Project – Performing Arts Festival
Istanbul
, 2011

pitch black, stiff beard….  footprints hided by the tail.. 

A surreal ‘night walk’, nodding to 70’s thriller movies’ seductive aesthetic (by directors like Dario Argento and Brian De Palma), while attempting to confront and surmount the genre’s misogynistic tendencies
rooted in its clichés; buried in the archetypes.
The performance brings together the stage and the silver screen on the same platform, integrating live acting, live storytelling, recorded music and projected movie.

The seventh GalataPerform ‘Visibility Project’ will run Oct. 22 and 23 with the motto ‘Get Out of the Stage!’ The event will bring together artists from seven disciplines to Galata and its vicinity
