White on White, is a dance performance designed by choreographer Marc Vanrunxt for dancer Bahar Temiz. The meeting of the duo in 2014 in Istanbul, at a workshop held by Platform 0090, has resulted in this successful project.
Bahar Temiz is an artist with strong ties to the West European dance scene. Temiz works with such names as Ivana Müller and Felix Mathias Ott who are both experts in their respective fields to deliver an entirely performative experience in White on White. The contributions of visual artist Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven and fashion designer Jean-Paul Lespagnard renders this experience unique. In White on White, Vanrunxt’s choreography dedicated to a performance-based experience fuses with Temiz’s dance. The duo’s brief and influential touch will, without a doubt, remain with the audience for a long time.
Istanbul Theatre Festival and Platform 0090 (www.0090.be), an interdisciplinary and international workspace based in Belgium, have a longstanding collaboration. In 2018, Istanbul Theatre Festival and Platform 0090 present five productions with a strong inherent connotation to Turkish culture because of the involvement of Turkish artists and the influence of Turkish subjects, themes and contexts. These performances are presented under the common denominator: ‘Choice from Flanders’ and is supported by the Flemish Ministry of Culture.
