Hangi terliği istiyorsun?

2022 I İzmir

Hangi terliği istiyorsun? (Which slippers do you want to wear?) is a performance where I read my texts about  identity and self-conception. The stories are read in Turkish accompanied by songs in Turkish, Hungarian and Kurdish. The focus is on my autobiographical memories about being an Istanbul-born blondie, a European punk amidst an assimilated migrant milieu and about having a queer identity as a teenager. I’ve been working hard to change my feeling of being a stranger in my own culture since my childhood. Through my writings I found the right way to react. I make the audience cry and laugh with self-reflective humour, but most importantly, I make them rethink their own prejudices.
