This dance is structured on my reflections of the neighborhood Kustepe and Ahırkapi. Certainly, the complexity of the culture we encountered there cannot possibly be understood in a single week of research.

Although we have an outsider’s perspective and have been exposed to Kustepe for only a short amount of time, there were still striking images, sounds, and statements that demand to be addressed artistically.  This structured dance is formed using key words extracted from personal notes, quotes from newspapers and interviews.  For each of these key words, there is an established correlated movement.  These words convey ideas of motion, articulation, fragmentation, mobility and relationships.  The choreography directly addresses these concepts.  This piece is an attempt to generate choreography based on the audience’s choices.  The dancer does not know or choose the order or the location of the movements.
