About the show “Oyun”

Sculptural scenography, the details of which allow objects to spin around their axis, roll, hover and collide with other equally energetic objects. “Oyun”, which means game in Turkish, is visual poetry. In Oyun, the juggler builds up a perfectly balanced structure, he creates his own space in the stage outlining the air and especially defying gravity while pursuing harmony among all the elements. "Oyun" is an unusual universe in which kitchen pots, spoons, kettles and other objects actively interact, resolving their relationships and seeking mutual harmony in them.

Who or what is the sculpture? Is it the juggler or the artefact created? What is the meaning of stability? What is the limit? These questions lead to the searching of the ultimate state: the perfect balance, the architecture of juggling, the harmony between everyday elements.

This show is the result of years of research and experimentation whose inspiration has come mainly from the different artistic disciplines: sculpture, visual poetry, architecture, photography, drawing, music, painting, theater, circus, etc. Oyun is a unique and innovative show for all kinds of audience, combining jokes, rhythm, originality and refined technique of juggling.The show has toured several countries: Turkey, Spain, Portugal, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany..
