… never giving up hope,
always ready to start again,
ready to receive what emerges from her depths…
….a ritual in which she revives the secret poetry of her life…
Let me be… is a ritual where a dancer, a choreographer and a lighting designer come together to have a deep conversation, each in their respective language, about the secret poetry of their lives. The dance is the main visual language, dialoguing with the light, and finalizing it’s journey by heavenly composition of Vivaldi.
The ritual takes place in a square of 2,5 x 2,5 m, in a minimalistic light design setting.
The performer, Beliz Demircioglu, the lighting designer Jan Komárek, and the choreographer Berrak Yedek invite us to this ritual which takes us through the mysterious paths of a dancer’s inner poetry. Costume is designed and made by Ezgi Akpinarli.
