Dance Company

Taldans Company was established in Istanbul by Mustafa KAPLAN and Filiz SIZANLI in 2002 and named after the Theater Research Laboratory (TAL) of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Theater, which was a movement/dance research unit established by Mustafa Kaplan. Taldans acts in public, urban areas, art galleries as well as stage performances. Besides the performances, Taldans coordinates and organizes body and movement-based workshops. Kaplan (engineer) and Sızanlı (architect) are also working on interdisciplinary and intercultural projects.
