Ceyda Tanc Dance present Kizlar.
A celebration of what it means to be female, Kizlar is an aesthetically driven exploration of femininity and masculinity, strength and vulnerability, creating a visually stunning dance work.
Ceyda Tanc Dance creates dynamic contemporary dance influenced by Tanc’s Turkish heritage. Drawing on the virtuoso movements of male Turkish dancers with an all-female company, their unique movement vocabulary combines athletic contemporary movement with traditional Turkish folk dance, conveying striking shapes and a strong, sensual energy. Tanc’s work seeks to challenge traditional gender representation and highlight the intersection of cultures in modern Britain, embedding themes of feminism, ritual and ceremony.

While the future is difficult to imagine, preparing for it is also vital and needed. Through this work we would like to consider what we can expect from the future on a personal level. Which part of it can we design individually and which will we be able to build as a community? Join us as we try to collectively find how we can be prepared for tomorrow, having lived through things that seemed impossible and unimaginable before. Dance Conversations – is a community performance group based in Crystal Palace, working together since 2020.
