Picasso01

Yesterday we headed to Beyoğlu, one of oldest neighborhoods of Istanbul, to visit few exhibitions. One of them was Engravings and Ceramics from the House of Birth of Pablo Picasso exhibition at Pera Museum.

We are delighted to visit this exhibition. Not only for having the chance to see one more time this master’s brilliant art work, also to see an impressive selection of his engravings and ceramics to observe his stylistic and artistic transitions, how he combine the styles in his work especially in engravings.

Exhibition is open until 20 of April 2014 at Pera Museum, Istanbul. You can also find the book of this small but impressive exhibition at museum shop.

Dün birkaç sergi gezmek üzere Beyoğlu’na yollandık. Bunlardan bir tanesi Pera Müzesi’ndeki Pablo Picasso’nun Doğduğu Evden Gravürler ve Seramikler sergisiydi.

Küçücük turşucuk bir sergiydi ama bayıldık. Sadece bu usta ressamın eserlerini bir kez daha görme şansını yakalamış olduğumuz için mutlu olmadık, aynı zamanda sanatçının özellikle gravürlerindeki üslûpsal ve sanatsal geçişleri, çalışmalarında değişik tarzları nasıl harmanladığını gözlemlememize olanak sunan eser seçimi ve sergileme şeklini de çok sevdik.

Sergi 20 Nisan 2014 tarihine kadar İstanbul’da, Pera Müzesi’nde açık. Ayrıca bu küçük ama etkileyici serginin kitabını da müze dükkânında bulabilirsiniz.

Bir Tatavla Masali01

Yesterday evening in a theatre in Istanbul, Alkışlar Tiyatrosu players performed a story taking place in one of old neighborhoods of Istanbul, in Tatavla (actual name Kurtuluş). It was about Tatavla, it was about Turks, it was about “us”. It was about muslim, Greek orthodox, Armenian people of this country living together, sharing happiness and pain. Before the play, actors and audience shared a minute of silence for Berkin. He was a 15 years old boy, shot by police with a gas canister from his head last summer, during the protests against islamist government.

Yesterday, we farewelled him after 269 days of coma. Yesterday we felt ashamed for not being able to protect him. Yesterday, people talking of being religious but trying to divide this country as muslim, christian, jewish didn’t feel ashamed…

Dün akşam Profilo Alışveriş Merkezi tiyatro salonunda, Alkışlar Tiyatrosu oyuncuları Bir Tatavla Masalı’nı sahneye koydular. İstanbul’un eski semtlerinden Tatavla’nın (şimdiki adıyla Kurtuluş), Türklerin, “bizim” öykümüzdü anlatılan. Bu ülkenin birarada yaşayan, acıyı ve mutluğu paylaşan müslüman, Rum, Ermeni halkıydı anlatılan. Oyundan önce oyuncular ve seyirciler Berkin için bir dakika saygı duruşunda bulundu, hep birlikte “Berkin Elvan ölümsüzdür” diye haykırdı.

Dün, 15 yaşındaki kara gözlü çocuğa veda ettik. Dün, onu koruyamamış olduğumuz için utandık. Dün, dindar olmaktan söz eden ama bu ülkeyi müslüman, hristiyan, yahudi diye bölmeye kalkışanlar utanmadılar…

The Ladykillers01

1955 dated The Ladykillers is a British black comedy we watched last year. The film is based on the story of five gangsters who rent a room at the house of an old lady and pretend to be musicians while they are planning a bank robbery.

Yesterday evening we headed to Strand, to Vaudeville Theatre, for watching The Ladykillers at the theatre this time. We arrived little bit earlier and popped up at The George for few pints, a lovely old British pub established in 1723. Then continued with coctails at the bar of the theatre. As a dessert, we had The “spectacular” Ladykillers. We really loved the play, the performance of the players, specially Angela Thorne as Mrs. Wilberforce and John Gordon Sinclair as Professor Marcus but our special respects are for the set designer Michael Taylor and special effects designer Scott Penrose. What a wonderfull scenery they created in such a little place. It was just: impressive!

If you still didn’t watch The Ladykillers at the scene, last days to have the chance. Don’t miss it.

The Woman in Black01

Yesterday evening we were at Fortune Theatre in Covent Garden for The Woman in Black, a play adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from the novel of  British writer Susan Hill and performed by actors Crawford Logan and Tim Delap.

It was our first time in Fortune Theatre and we loved this old theatre opened to the public in 1924. We are not very big fan of novel adaptations in cinema except some brilliant examples but we love to see them in theatre -specially novels we read- and The Woman in Black was a very successful adaptation from the novel. Also it was very effective usage of only two persons in cast and the simple scenery to interpret the whole story and different locations.
