Born and raised in Turkey, Enis Turan currently lives and works as a freelance dancer and choreographer. He studied contemporary dance at the Cologne University of Music and Dance and the University of the Arts Iceland then, in 2015, completed training as a pole fitness teacher (L1), under the direction of Marlo Fisken. His artistic interest in dance lies at the intersection of conceptual works and extreme physical/performative engagement, and that of dance art and other art forms. In elaborating such themes, he focuses strongly on contradictions and their fusion. His latest stage work “Club27,” which deals with death, transience, and immortalization, was shown at HAU Hebbel am Ufer immediately before “Unacknowledged Loss II.” Deemed “particularly talented” in 2014, while still a dance student, he was awarded a Lancôme Scholarship and, later, in the summer of 2017, a danceWEB scholarship in the framework of the ImPuls Tanz Festival in Vienna. In addition to his own choreographic works, he has danced for Josep Caballero García, Sebastian Matthias, Erna Ómarsdóttir, Dewey Dell, Alfredo Zinola, Marie-Lena Kaiser, and TachoTinta, among others.
