About the Event

BEYOND is a dance performance by Can Bora & Ufuk Senel, focusing on an issue that surrounds all of us : THE DESIRE.

Inspired by the traditional Turkish oil wrestling, the two turkish artists investigate the politics of desire and the impacts of the touch.

Here, the desire isn't approached as a mechanism of sovereignty or a parameter of lack, but rather as a possible process of production of a reality.

The performance aims to stage a performative view of the relatonship between the self and the other by updating the cultural and pyhsical aspects of wrestling by a queer perspective, while canonizing the tactility. The work interwines the socio-cultural images found in Eastern and Western geographies and traces a map of desire built on the tension between fiction-reality, nakedness-nudity and tradition-utopia.
