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.

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.

Fluid Identities Creating an Identity / Hybrid Identities

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.
