In our current geo-political context, what are the new rituals for encountering the unknown, coming together to affirm powerful, essential values which transcend borders?

Ritual for a Sensitive Geography an invitation to audiences to tiptoe through the construction of their own borders, imaginary, psychic, sensitive and physical, which will be felt in these small group encounters.

Our bodies become our country.

What intercorporal policy are we trying to construct ?

Ritual for a sensitive geographyis a series of 3 choreographic installations which allow us to see how each person portrays his or her body and relates to others. With dance movements and words, the dancers accompany the audience in their experiencing of these “choreographic objects,” choreographic practices, simple actions, even children’s games …

Somewhere between installation, performance and audience connection, these rituals address the issue of meeting through space, time and movement.

This project invites spectators to look at dance, to experience a certain state of listening, to be a co‑constructor of the ritual in which each presence has its own influence.The participants experience the building of their own territory, with their own way of reaching out to others.

Wanting to share these rituals of meeting is what Filiz Sizanli and Mustafa Kaplan experienced at Gezi Park on the Place Taksim in Istanbul in 2013.

During a time of violence and repression in which the stakes are life itself, men and women create spaces for meetings and rallies to resist, to encourage exchanges between human beings: sharing a meal, reading to each other, sharing dances, receiving first aid, exchanging books, words, movements, looks. Propositions for rallies and other forms of sharing were organized by artists and citizens, creating a community based on tolerance and exchange.

Could body transform into space, and space into sound? Is something functional always useful? DO KU MAN was born ten years ago when Taldans transformed the workings of a textile factory in Linz to movement, sound, and rhythm. This time around, DO KU MANis on the stage with a larger cast and a fresh interpretation. Kaplan and Sızanlı are the creators of the concept and choreography for the performance. Nine performers/dancers undertake the task of moving the sound, building sound blocks and modular structures around the stage.

This tactile piece of theatre draws inspiration from the work of osteopath Julie Nioche and the testimonies of NHS staff members and patients.

Interactive and contemplative, NHS70:Touch will explore the importance of physical touch as part of a patient’s care and treatment.

Touch is being created by a powerhouse of international, national and local artists and organisations; National Theatre Wales, Llanrwst‑based Migrations, French musician Alexandre Meyer and choreographer and dancer Julie Nioche, choreographers Filiz Sizanli and Mustafa Kaplan from Turkey, and a cast of dancers including Laura Dannequin, Angharad Harrop, Cai Tomos and Simon Whitehead.
