  • July 18, 2020 / 14:00

We kick off by sharing examples of dance and movement therapy and practical examples, then we do a warm-up exercise and start moving our bodies. For the movement improvisation, we find inspiration in artist Jean-Baptiste Hilair's Yeni Camii and the Port of Istanbul painting from the Intersecting Worlds: Ambassadors and Painters exhibition, included in the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Collection Exhibitions. We work on various themes such as posture, costume and strength, with inspiration from the Daughter of the English Ambassador Riding in a Palanquin by Fausto Zonaro. This workshop calls for a curiosity about the body and offers a discovery thereof!

For the workshop, please find a place where you can move freely.
At the end of the event, participants will receive a certificate by e-mail.

Dancing on Architecture

Dancing on Architecture

I think it was Frank Zappa – though others claim it was Laurie Anderson – who said in an interview that ‘writing on music is much like dancing on architecture’. 

It’s better to burn out than to fade away

It’s better to burn out than to fade away

In 1962 Philip Corner, one of the most prominent members of the Fluxus movement, caused a great commotion in serious music circles when during a performance entitled Piano Activities he climbed up onto a grand piano and began to kick it while other members of the group attacked it with saws, hammers and all kinds of other implements.

Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests

Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests

Between 1963 and 1966 Andy Warhol worked at making film portraits of all sorts of characters linked to New York art circles. Famous people and anonymous people were filmed by Andy Warhol’s 16 mm camera, for almost four minutes, without any instructions other than ‘to get in front of the camera’.
