AKM Grand Hall
A special project of the International Istanbul Theatre Festival, Nefes, a co-production of Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts and Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch was held at the AKM Grand Hall on May 29-30-31 and June 1. An additional performance was held on June 2 due to the keen interest shown for Pina Bausch Istanbul Project by the Istanbulite audience. Tanztheater Wuppertal - Pina Bausch, which has introduced the concept of "dance theatre" to modern dance literature and became a leading influence in this field, provided an evening of memorable moments for more than 6,000 art lovers.
Tanztheater Wuppertal - Pina Bausch was the guest of the International Istanbul Theatre Festival in 1998 with The Window Washer designed for Hong Kong, and of the 12. International Istanbul Theatre Festival in 2000 with Masurca Fogo this time based on Lisbon. The company mesmerized the audience with both of these performances.
