Constructing Dance in the Republican Era
Arzu Öztürkmen will talk about different dance practices during the modernization process in Turkey, parallel to the Dansbana! Kalamış project. What is social dance? Taking this question as a starting point, she firstly deals with the subject of "Tarzan Zeybeği", imagined by Selim Sırrı Tarcan in the 1920s, and looks at the relationship between this ballroom dance and the growing folk dance movement in community centres. Finally, she touches upon the reinvention of Western dance practices in the urban scene in Turkey.
 
The talk will be in Turkish.

The Map of Empathic Society
Tereza Ruller, co-founder of The Rodina, will talk about The Map of Empathic Society, which invites viewers to step in and become part of it. The background and context of the installation will be explored through Ruller’s ideas on the term performative design, inspired by Johan Huizinga's writings about the homo ludens and Donna Haraway's theory of multispecies togetherness. The Rodina believes in the importance of caring and playing in order for an empathic society to develop. Tereza Ruller will then give insight into different imagined places on the map and present a video documentation of a performance by Ekin Tunceli and Pinar Akyuz.
