Aylin Kalem Presented @ Ballhaus Naunynstrasse Berlin

Aylin Kalem had a presentation on “Contemporary Dance in Turkey: An Aesthetics of Transformation” at Ballhaus Naunynstrasse in Berlin on the 1st of June within the project In/Out curated by Wagner Carvalho.

“Contemporary Dance in Turkey has been flourishing particularly in the last years. Turkish choreographers display an aesthetics of transformation in various ways: through the exploration of anatomy, through spiritual journey, and as an existential quest. The presentation focused on the works of Aydin Teker, Berrak Yedek, and Ilyas Odman.”
