New Creation Victory Over the Sun @Festival Trajectoires, 20.January.2018, Nantes, FR

Taldans is happy to invite you to their new creation “Victory Over the Sun” performance at Festival Trajectoires.

VictoryOverTheSun_.jpg

Taldans’ new approach of the relationship between the text, body and rhythm is continuing with the first Russian futuristic opera “Victory Over the Sun”. 

Taldans’ founders, Mustafa Kaplan and Filiz Sızanlı, are experiencing to be on stage as a couple once again after a 15 years of collaboration, and trying to infiltrate to the vocal and imaginative contents of the text. They are searching new ways of editing their own body languages with a new texture. Kaplan and Sızanlı are analyzing the futuristic attitude in the Victory Over the Sun” over a choreographic sequencing with emphasizing the vocal material and composing a new spelling book over searching the movement of the sound.

Taldans is working through mathematical and architectural calculations, developing over the language and content; measuring the distance between words and music by using several rhythms and traditional Turkish music’s ‘usulpatterns and examining to develop the vocal material into variations. They are recomposing the sequences by corrupting the sequences that composes the content, searching ways to predict the language of the future by provoking the traditional language.

Taldans has no intention to create an opera or a theatre play while approaching this futuristic opera, aiming to chase after a dynamic and steamy fiction which is liberative in the language and the body, going through with the “Victory Over the Sun”, a piece that dreams and tells that “everything is possible in the impossibility”.

Dolap @Théâtre de la Ville, Paris, FR 19-22/10/2017

Dolap_ Paris

Dolap
40′
An old fridge is anything but useless! In a well-structured trio with his partner Filiz Sizanli, Mustafa Kaplan transforms it in a surreal character. The ludicrous and dreamlike humor of an engineer and a former architect.

With their overflowing imagination, Mustafa Kaplan and Filiz Sizanli recycled an old fridge and transformed it in a gym apparatus and a dance partner which is both an enemy and an accomplice. Around this “Dolap”, meaning wardrobe but also plot in Turkish, they’re tricked by some ludicrous and silly situations, like two furniture movers who’d step in the imaginary world of a child. Adults might grasp different metaphors…
