Share this show

In spring 2019 the Turkish/Dutch dancer and choreographer Rutkay Özpinar [1991] conducted a unique research into Turkish folk dances. He studied Oriental [belly dance], Halay [highly grounded, repetitive dance] and Zeybek, a slow dance from the Aegean area. Rutkay then opened up his own movement language to absorb these styles. With belly dancer Adrijana he presents the results of his expedition in Gönülden gelen, Turkish for ‘what springs from the soul’. Rutkay Özpinar masters the rare art of blending modern dance, neoclassical ballet and urban dance. Since 2014 he has been working with dance production house Korzo in The Hague.

Choreography and dance: Rutkay Özpinar, Adrijana
