Dilan Ercenk-Heimann


With “EL Z G”, choreographer and performer Dilan Ercenk-Heimann attempts to capture the essence of the Halay dances, on which this project is based. The video work is, in a way, a distillation of the folk dances and music of the eastern Anatolian region of Elazig. In her artistic exploration, Ercenk-Heimann dispenses with the force of group formation, variety of colours of traditional costumes and dominance of live instrumentation, thus enabling a different perspective and concentration on this culturally and traditionally shaped dance phenomenon.
