SALT Beyoğlu, Floor 2



African Dance is an experimental interdisciplinary art work consisting of video, installation, exhibition, performance, and dance.

A theatrical text, which takes reference from Sevim Burak’s short story and book African Dance, is expressed through different layers produced across various disciplines that address and complement each other. The work, as Burak explores in the story, builds on the concept of resistance as an act of “perseverance and persistent production, thus existence.”

The performance commemorates with respect her practice of resistence, which also informs “the spirit” of the theatrical aesthetic.

African Dance by Burak will be staged for the first time as a part of this project.

In collaboration with SALT
