Sakinan Göze Çöp Batar (an over-protected eye always gets sand in it)

First presented in 2012, this piece from Christian Rizzo's repertoire is the result of a collaboration with the dancer Kerem Gelebek, with whom he worked on many occasions in the past. "When I approached Kerem for a solo performance, my first desire was to concentrate on melancholy and exile,"said Rizzo. "The concept of exile no longer confines to a territory but to the self: exiling oneself from oneself. Melancholy, however, remains obligatory. Kerem manipulates the space on stage and lays down danced fragments such as haikus, sketches, or notes that, together, form a collection of thoughts born from movement.” 

Post-show Talk
A chance to hear Katerina Andreou, Kerem Gelebek, and Christian Rizzo talk about their works, which will take place in the auditorium following the performance on May 20.

The running time of the performance is approximately 50 minutes.
