THE EVOLUTION OF HACİVAT AND KARAGÖZ IN DRAMATIC TEXTS
Workshop Leader: ŞEBNEM TELCİ DERELİ
Age: 18+ Yaş People: 10 Duration: 240 min.
Hacivat and Karagöz appear as two historical and ancient figures that we can clearly perceive the difference between type and character, and also provide us with literary opportunities as a dramatic element. While focusing on the production of type and characters in the dramatic writing workshop by questioning this contrast relationship we see from Hollywood cinema to classical period, modern period plays, from Yeşilçam to Korean cinema and TV shows, on the one hand, he will try to understand Hacivat and Karagöz, who have appeared throughout history, and on the other hand, he will try to understand the new ones. We will witness the production of our Karagöz and Hacivats.
The Great Red Wall has always been there. But little mouse’s friends did not know why that wall was there. Nor did they know what was beyond the wall. All they knew was that they were terrified of the wall. Will she find the courage to explore the unknown? Will he be able to take that first step into the world where freedom and possibilities await him? But little mouse was curious. The first time he asked a question, ‘Why is this wall here?’ he did something his friends had never done before. He asked a question and the Red Wall disappeared. In fact, the Red Wall, which never existed, no longer existed.

In his dream, he went for a walk in the forest and when he wanted to return to his home, he could not find the way and got lost.
