Theatre Events


The play, Alone, tells the story of Susan, who is preparing to embark on a trip to Australia with friends in her twenties, this time on her own, in a bid to make a new change at her new age.

"Here I am again... With the same hopes and dreams... And with an extra 40 years of bagage.

Susan's "Honeybee of Loneliness", which tries to follow its fate in the questioning, fun, sad and chaotic world of loneliness, takes the audience on a journey full of hope and adventure...

"I'm really alive. I'm living in the moment as it is. I'm not just living, I'm living...

Sip, drink blood... You're not going to sip, you're going to drink straight..."   SUSAN

The Code of Emotions with Tunç Akkoç

"I'm here with an interactive one-man show.

I sweetened the conversation I brought from radio to the stage with 45 songs, poems and stories.

We meet in a conversation program that makes you think, partially appeal to reason and logic, and where emotions are bleached when listening in a cause-and-effect relationship.

I'm waiting for anyone who has an idea about emotion and password."
