What Dreams May Come
Between the Seas Festival/NY2Dance
What Dreams may come is a new multi media solo dance piece by award winning Turkish choreographer Nejla Yatkin, supported in part by the Turkish Cultural Foundation. Set to music by Turkish composers Ahmed Saygun and Kamran Ince, this new solo dance explores the intersection and connection between East and West through movement, space, form, light and shadow. All movements are structured around, through and against the symbol of infinity (∞) within the body, through light and within architecture of space. Through the combination of multiple elements and cultures, What dreams may come connects identity, the personal with the historical, as well as the contemporary with the traditional.
Ms. Yatkin has received the DC Mayors Arts Award for Outstanding Emerging Artist, 6 Metro DC Dance Awards, a 2008 Princess Grace Choreography Award, a 2009 Princess Grace Special Project Award, 4 Artist Fellowship Awards from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities for her excellence in Dance and Choreography. In 2005 she was selected as one of Dance Magazine’s “Top 25 To Watch."
