Body Double - Stockholm Istanbul

Body Double brings together eight choreographers twice: Mustafa Kaplan (TR), Peter Mills (SE/UK), Rani Nair (SE), Ilyas Odman (TR), Zoë Poluch (SE/CA), Filiz Sizanli (TR), Björn Säfsten (SE) and Bahar Temiz (TR). First in  Stockholm in May 2016 and then in Istanbul in the fall.

The dramaturgy of the two gatherings is echoed at both places. They start off with two days of public presentations of the guesting artists followed by four days of artistic laboratory. The labs will leave traces in the form of choreographic podcasts that will be shared.
