Güngör Dilmen

Multi-award winning actress Yıldız Kenter makes her Arcola debut in this extraordinary one woman show.

2  performances, 15 characters, 1 legendary actress.

Gungor Dilmen, a prominent Turkish author, depicts the history of Anatolia through the perspective of women. The history of Anatolia is explained by 15 female characters; from the Roman Empress Theodora to the Turkish author Halide Adip Adivar, from Annan Comnena, the first female historian to Kybele, the fertility goddess of the Hittites.

This powerful story weaves together time and characters to explore conflicts such as East versus West, Christian versus Muslim, and black versus white.

Presented by Arcola Theatre in association with Kent Oyuncuları.
