Enis Turan

Beauty & the Beast

Part of “Performing Arts Festival Berlin 2017”


English / approx. 30 minutes

A queer anthem to freedom and individuality. On the subtle edge between staging and honesty the dancer Enis Turan confronts freak-shows from the 19th century and Lady Gaga, thereby questioning the normality of the body. In the solo-performance he tries to unite the beauty and the beast in the individual body.
