Research into the Shadows

Karagiozis in Asia Minor

April 7, 2023
5 pm - 6.30 pm (EST)

Sakıp Sabancı Center for Turkish Studies

This workshop explores the role of historical research in shadow theatre. SNFPHI awardee Spyros Aggelopoulos discusses with historian Christine Philliou (UC Berkeley) and Columbia faculty a new play Karagiozis in Asia Minor, the outcome of a collaboration with scholars from Turkey and Greece. How might shadow theatre become a vehicle for popularising knowledge on early 20th century identity in Anatolia, the Greek-Turkish War, and the subsequent exchange of populations? How can collaborative work between artists and scholars inspire and inform the form and content of shadow theatre?

The workshop will be conducted in English. Register and receive the materials on the following link:
