- Migration - Art
From Ritual to Drama
by Ayse Emel Mesci
and Workshop: 21-22. May 2005
In her performance Ayse Emel Mesci takes a trip to the origins of the
Anatolic culture, to the Anatolic tradegy “Kurban” (“The
Sacrifice” – Author: Güngör Dilmen) and to the
western counterpart of this tragedy -“Medea” (Authors: Dario
Fo and Franca Rame).
Starting from the central Asiatic rituals of a Shaman as the beginning
of the performance, the artist deals with different techniques and forms
of expression. In the centre there is the human being/artist/shaman,
acting as an intermediary between the spiritual and the real world.
The interdisciplinary workshop appeals to actors, ethnologists, students
of dramatics and to all, who are interested in theatre.
