Nefés

Pina Bausch’s Istanbul: another stop-off point along her poetic wanderings, another inkling of what it feels like to be human. Nefés was inspired in 2003 by the war in Iraq. It means ‘breath’ in Turkish, and though it sketches a dark city, it never ceases to sing of life. The ancient traditions of the Turkish hamam, Sufi meditation and whirling dervishes, the sensuality of the belly dance: contrasting images that form a fresco of a city flamboyant, bustling yet sad, caught between myth and history.
