CEYDA TANC DANCE
The first of our companies is Ceyda Tanc Dance, lead by Brighton-based and Turkish-born choreographer Ceyda Tanc. Tanc blends folk dance with contemporary styles, questioning stereotypes by using virtuosic movements usually reserved for Turkish men with her all-female company of dancers. KAYA explores the experience of displacement, drawing on the strength and resilience of those searching for belonging in a new community.
“There’s no mistaking the humanism of Ceyda’s muscular choreography. This is bold, driving dance…” BN1 Magazine
Belfast-based Oona Doherty is the DU19 Featured Artist. Her solos Hope Hunt & the Ascension into Lazarus burst onto the stage with fury, swagger and humanity. Adopting multiple personas of disaffected male youth, she channels humour and hedonism, joy and despair in quick-fire succession. Her remarkable dance-theatre has won awards at both the Dublin and Edinburgh Fringe festivals.
“It’s riveting and moving, and she’s simply a phenomenal performer” The Times
