Who or what is the sculpture? Is it the juggler or the artifact created? What is the meaning of stability? What is the limit? These questions lead to the searching of the ultimate state: the perfect balance, the architecture of juggling, the harmony between everyday elements.
In Oyun, the juggler builds up a perfectly balanced structure, he creates his own space in the stage outlining the air and especially defying gravity while pursuing harmony among all the elements involved. Oyun (‘game’ in Turkish) is a universe of cooking pots. Everything revolves around pots, spoons, ropes, balls…
This show is the result of years of research and experimentation whose inspiration has come mainly from the different artistic disciplines: sculpture, visual poetry, architecture, photography, drawing, music, painting, theatre, circus, etc.

DOSSIER STREET VERSION:
DOSSIER INDOOR VERSION:
A wooden path leads to the space of Tótem: the main protagonist. In that place, the balance is who gives the orders. The Tótem, following its creation, guide all movements. Gravity just obeys, because being with the Tótem it means that everything is possible…
A surround music, a path, wood bricks, balls in the air… all of them, elements from the Tótem. The minimalism of the atmosphere created around the Tótem, contrasts with the variety and richness of movements of the juggler.
Tótem is an original show, full of details and subtleties, which invites to the audience to indulge the imagination and mysticism, and become a part of the Tótem.
Llum is a show full of subtleties, details, and above all, full of visual poetry, where light balls dance in the dark, defying gravity, as if they were fireflies.
The total fusion of juggling and music with the sounds of water, engage the viewer from the beginning to the end. The complete darkness creates an endless space, where there are no limits or visual barriers between artist and viewer, connecting in a dream world of color, fantasy and imagination.
