Thanks to the enthusiastic efforts of ELIT students a new play is on its way to meet the audience on March 9th, 10th and 13th, 2012. This will be the third performance by the ELIT Department since 2009. The Importance of Being Earnest and Arms and The Man were staged successively in 2009 and 2010 by Dr. Gül Kurtuluş. This time she is the Project Manager. Translation used for the performance is done by A.S. Klein, known as Tony Klein, who is a British poet and translator.
Erdi Mamikoğlu, Director of Ankara State Theatre is taking a surrealistic approach to the direction of Blood Wedding by Federico Garcia Lorca. He is a graduate of the Department of Theater at Bilkent University and has received the Sadri Alışık Anadolu Tiyatro Award recently. For two hours, the play will take the audience to the early twentieth-century Spain to have a unique experience of the revenge, passion, grief and despair caused by a family feud.
