Could body transform into space, and space into sound? Is something functional always useful? DO KU MAN was born ten years ago when Taldans transformed the workings of a textile factory in Linz to movement, sound, and rhythm. This time around, DO KU MAN is on the stage with a larger cast and a fresh interpretation. Kaplan and Sızanlı are the creators of the concept and choreography for the performance. Nine performers/dancers undertake the task of moving the sound, building sound blocks and modular structures around the stage.
