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…

Taldans Taldans’ı Anlatıyor
Anlatımlı Performans, 60dk
Konsept ve Performans: Mustafa Kaplan, Filiz Sızanlı

Taldans’ın yaklaşık 20 yıllık geçmişini anlatmak üzere yola çıktığı projede, Mustafa Kaplan ve Filiz Sızanlı kendi “repertuarlarında” bir yolculuk yapıyorlar ve repertuar fikriyle oynuyorlar.

Bu “Anlatımlı Performans”da projelerinde tartışmalarını ve araştırmalarını, ilişki içinde oldukları ve ortaklık yaptıkları sanatçıları paylaşıyorlar.

Eskiye ait olan bir bilgiyi nasıl güncelleriz, bugünden eskiye nasıl bakarız, geçmişi nasıl bugün yaparız sorularını soruyorlar. Var olan eski oyunlarını anlatan video, metin ve dansların bazı parçalarını alıp performatif bir yaklaşımla yeniden kurguluyorlar. Kaplan ve Sızanlı, Taldans hakkında bilgi veren ve bu bilgiyi oyunlaştıran bir yaklaşımla karşımıza çıkıyorlar.

Taldans is at Fast Forward Festival 2 with X Apartments – Athens

21-24 May 2015 

Who lives in this city and how do they live? What stories are hidden from us by its apartment walls? What sort of narrative do the histories of its residents—privileged and anything but, natives and immigrants, young and old—form?
X Apartments encourages its spectators/participants to explore their city’s unknown private zone for a few short hours, to transform themselves into romantic flâneurs who visit the homes of fellow Athenians for an encounter with their lives. This fascinating urban happening is a theatre of the authentic situation, of familiarization, participation and coexistence. Directors and film-makers, architects, visual artists and choreographers from Greece and abroad turn these private residences into stage sets on which they present their in situ performances.

“The theatre has never before been possessed of such a desire for reality”, declares the pioneering German curator, Matthias Lilienthal (b. 1959), artistic director of various prestigious theatrical organization, whose radical productions move theatre out of the landscape of illusion into that of revelatory experience. Staging this site-specific excursion into the homes of others since 2002, he re-examines the boundaries between private and public space, colonizing and nomadic life, individualism and community, urban exploration and psychogeography. After Beirut, Johannesburg, São Paolo and many more cities besides, this unique dérive which invites us to penetrate deep into our fellow citizens’ private inner sancta is coming to Athens.
