'RAILWAY STORYISTS' AND 'FAR' WILL PREMIERE
The festival, which will be held for the second time this year, also opens up space for amateur-professional teams from Bergama and its surroundings.
Directed by Eren Arıkan, the national program of the festival will feature plays such as DasDas play, The God of Wildness, Kumabaracı50's 'Railroad Stories', which will premiere at the festival, and 'Uzak', a joint production of Mekan Artı Berlin, which will also premiere at the festival.
CEVDET EREK WILL ALSO PARTICIPATE
Guests from different disciplines will also take part in the festival. Cevdet Erek, who reinterpreted the Great Altar of Pergamon, which he took as his starting point, with sound architecture and performances, exhibited the first of these interpretations, Bergama Stereo, in 2019 as part of the Ruhrtrienale in Bochum and at the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum in Berlin. The artist will exhibit the first steps of the long-term continuation of the project, which will take place in Bergama, at the festival.
