Movement and Dance Piece by Piece

Pera Kids
Ages 10-12

How would you like to create a dancing choreography along with hip-hop? Everyone in the family can join in. Write movements and limbs on pieces of paper, like hand-right, leg-left, shoulder-left, knee-right, and mix them in a bowl. Then, have every player draw 10 pieces and create their dance moves using the movements as a guide. Try practicing your moves slowly with the music at first, and then add them together to create your own dance. If you wish to film your dance and share it online, don’t forget to use the #PeraLearning hashtag!

The Battle of Varna

The Battle of Varna

Over the years of 1864 through 1876, Stanisław Chlebowski served Sultan Abdülaziz in Istanbul as his court painter. As it was, Abdülaziz disposed of considerable artistic talents of his own, and he actively involved himself in Chlebowski’s creative process, suggesting ideas for compositions –such as ballistic pieces praising the victories of Turkish arms. 

Return from Vienna

Return from Vienna

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
