- What’s On
This multimedia theatrical experience explores an old Istanbul mansion’s transition from Ottoman to modern eras through video art, traditional Turkish music, live looping and Foley, accompanying a retake on traditional Turkish storytelling techniques.The play is based on creator Yesim Ozsoy’s family history. Galata Perform, an award-winning Istanbul-based theatre company working internationally, produced this play as part of a multinational co-production for War or Peace Festival at Maxim Gorki Theatre in Berlin, with the support from the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
