  • 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.

Girl in a Blue Dress

Girl in a Blue Dress

This life-size portrait of a girl is a fine example of the British art of portrait painting in the early 18th century. The child is shown posing on a terrace, which is enclosed at the right foreground by the plinth of a pillar; the background is mainly filled with trees and shrubs.

Cameria (Mihrimah Sultan)

Based on similar examples by the European painters in various collections, this work is one of the portraits of Mihrimah Sultan, who was depicted rather often in the 16th century.

“A nameless Egyptian fresco, an African idol or a vase from Crete: we should behold Pirosmani’s art among them. Only this way it is possible to conceive it genuinely … …You see Pirosmani – you believe in Georgia”.
