Küçuk Mustapha Paça Hammam, Fatih, Istanbul
One of the highlights of my visit to the Istanbul Biennal was the performance at the Küçük Mustapha Pasa Hammam. Hearing about it by chance after assisting at the conference by Heba Amin on her work at the Pera Museum. We decided to go and find this Hammam in the middle of the night in the neighborhood of Fatih. The taxi dropped us not far and every person we asked for the way kept saying the hammam was closed but finally someone took us there.
We were only a few guests most of the people invited for this private view were probably enjoying the dinner and after given by the Biennal.
We were not prepared for what we saw and we really were taken emotionally and mentally by the work of this choreographer/performer and her group. You can find about her here and here is the link for videos of her work.
The text in the drawings its her words about the performance.
