Istanbul, end or beginning of a new world? The end of one world, the start of another ...
The Istanbul inhabitants feel a sense of loss of a way of life, a story, a city. Is it a simple evolution or a brutal and irreversible destruction? During his show,
Emil Kuyumcuyan transports us into his complex and contrasting feelings. It immerses us in the evolution of Istanbul through current clichés, but also in the past with precious family videos of the 60s accompanied by his compositions and music of today.
Is a new vivacity and a second energy seizing the city of the three empires?
