Improvisation Performance with Rieko Okuda
Cansu Ergin is a Turkish artist dedicated to spreading contemporary dance through Turkey. Her focus is “transformation” – research about what the body can express by using its structure and energies where they come from, how they function, the transformation of passive energy into kinetic. Her goal is to share the experience of the way to create with many colleagues and audience.
Being one of the emerging Turkish artists dedicated to spread contemporary dance through many cities in Turkey, I use performance, workshops and other means as away to include people in the act of doing rather than only watching performances.During my study in europe, my creations were presented and performed in Lisbon, Prague, Utrecht, Munich among many other cities, and I was invited to several festivals and platforms in Europe. In Lisbon I have worked on the improvisation methods in a very intensive period with the choreographers such like Vera Mantero, Mark Tompkins, Jeremy Nelson, Lisa Nelson, Meg Stuart, Joao Fiadeiro among others. Through many different approaches of improvisation I was focused on the real time composition, the score, actions and the live music. After Lisbon, I’ve been based in Izmir and Istanbul in Turkey, focusing on the theme ‘transformation’. And I work internationally as freelancer choreographer, dancer and lecturer.
