Dance and Movement Therapy with Paintings

Pera Adult

  • 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.

Midnight Stories: The Soul
Aşkın Güngör

The wind blows, rubbing against my legs made of layers of metal and wires, swaying the leaves of grass that have shot up from the cracks in the tarmac, and going off to the windows that look like the eyes of dead children in the wrecked buildings that seem to be everywhere as far as the eye can see.

José Sancho does not conceal the voluptuousness of his female torsos; he highlights it. These torsos are symmetrical from front, but on the other hand, from the side, the juxtaposition of concave and convex forms creates dynamism.
