(ELLIPSIS)

by Fatih Gençkal

     (Ellipsis) sets off from Euripides’ tragedy Trojan Women to embark upon a journey into the subconscious landscape of our times. It creates a peculiar yet familiar universe juxtaposing refugee testimonies, astrological texts and contemporary staging conventions with Greek Tragedy situations and texts where ‘off-stage’ elements manipulate the space and the bodies in it. Contemplating on individuals and communities, coincidence and patterns, it depicts humans and their possibilities in a chaotic world, thus creating an anarchy of meaning in a world of Gods and men, of journeys and disasters, war and loss.
