AKM - C-19



Ankara State Opera and Ballet

The themes of “humanness” and “human anatomy” that lie at the heart of every work that the choreograph Uğur Seyrek has ever produced will be examined once again in this event called “C-19.” The event focuses on the tides humans experience between their good or bad behaviours from birth to death, their strengths and weaknesses, their struggles with the dilemma of love and hate, their compliance and incompliance with themselves, their social circle, and nature, the fact that their primitive impulses are still present though changed, that they can carelessly continue to live no matter what disaster befalls on them, that they cannot even make use of the last chances that are presented to them, and shortly, the tragic reality of the human life where they don’t simply learn from their mistakes and continue to live in such a way that they never get redeemed.
