A special focus on women from the festival

There are several performances that focus on women in the festival programme this year: I, ‘Dear Milena’, which stars Meltem Cumbul and imagines and fictionalizes the ‘missing parts’ of the love correspondence between Franz Kafka and Milena Jesenská that have not reached the present day; The Revolutionist, which brings four women who were a part of the French Revolution and executed at the guillotine together on stage; Hou Vast! Laat Los!, adapted from Deniz Kaptan’s book Kadın Hikâyeleri (The Book of Women); The Land of Dead Women, in which we hear the voices of women murdered by men from the afterlife; I Am Anatolia, staged in memory of the legendary Turkish actress Yıldız Kenter by her students; and A Case Per Day, in which seven women tell seven Covid-19 stories, will all meet the audience at the festival.

The physical performances will take place in accordance to Covid-19 measures in various venues in Istanbul such as DasDas, Fişekhane, Moda Stage, Zorlu PSM, Harbiye Muhsin Ertuğrul Stage, Babylon, Yapı Kredi bomontiada, Caddebostan Kültür Merkezi and Surp Vortvos Vorodman Church. The online performances will be available for streaming on online.iksv.org for audiences to enjoy on their screens. Ticket sales for the festival begins on Friday, 23 October at 10.30 and are available from biletix.com.
