FLY! by Markéta Stránská & “bir şey” by Ekin Tunçeli

How much does a narrowing support base influence our physical and mental stability? How do we explore a path that might be unusual, but possible? By changing our prevailing assumptions?

Markéta Stránská’s solo highlights the fact that every divergence offers enriching opportunities and unique physical and mental pathways. Every obstacle is an occasion to awaken our imagination. FLY! is a physical life experience with one leg, one prosthetic leg and two crutches.

“bir şey”

FLY! by Markéta Stránská & “bir şey” by Ekin Tunçeli

In "bir şey" –which means “thing” in Turkish–, Ekin Tunçeli embraces an unknown situation with intuition at hand. The solo dives into the intricate relationship between mind and body, strained by the conflict between analytical mind –the one that dictates and interrogates– and the intuitive one –in contact with the senses and with time and space. Using this tension, Ekin unveils her body and voice’s inner journey.
