Festival 2018

AFlerThe countdown for the great meeting has begun. 25-29 April 2018 will be euphoric for the art-lovers in Ayvalık. Along with 13 distinct theater plays (one of which is a children’s play), there will appear many movie projections, acting workshops, discussions, exhibitions, signature days in the festival and also a Karagöz-Hacivat and Shadow Portraits workshop which will occur for the first time in our festival.
It is our very goal and desire that all the troupes and festival followers can follow the programme, watch each others’ plays and join the workshops. The opening play is “Man on the Bridge” by Bursa State Theater. “Amsterdam Stories”, the play of Theater Rast from Holland will get up on stage in its native language. Our special guests in the festival are performer Ayla Algan who has been granted The Theater Endeavor Mention, Telat Yurtsever from Germany in relation to the workshop activities, Hülya Savaş – performer in İzmir State Theater, Emine Gül Civelek who is a tasvir artist – an old Ottoman art of depiction, Deniz Turhan Hotiç for dramatic writing practices and Dr. Türkan Noğay who is well-known with her works intended for children. We recommend you to see the movie “Türkiye’de Şekspir Olmak”/ “Being Shakespeare in Turkey” directed by Gülşah Özdemir Koryürek and to visit the exhibition by painter Doğan Demir involving the portraits of many actors and actresses we know from the screen and the stage. In short, we are gathering again in Ayvalık with a festival where everybody is going to be sated with theater and art. We are all impatient to wait. And we invite you to voice our festival slogan, to share our enthusiasm… “Theater, in spite of everything!
