NOTES ON THE TIP OF MY TONGUE: ON THE CONTEMPORARY ART OF SURVIVAL. “Once upon a time, there was a boy who wanted to sing in the streets. In fact, he didn’t want to do anything else but sing.”
As freedom of speech continues to be a controversial topic in many parts of the world, performing solo on stage today is a loud cry for survival, for freedom, for solidarity, and it shows a great desire to be heard.
In her poetic solo theatre piece, İpek Seyalıoğlu overthrows the dictated word after years of activism and brings out a voice that was once forced into silence.
“Always Praise Life. This is the way to sing.”
