Silent Spin

Silent Spin is a performance where traditional Turkish dance forms are being confronted with the Dutch contemporary dance. The performance is provoking the question: in which language is it most suitable for one to express himself. In the performance the audience is following the performers through the different exhibition areas of the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam on their search for the most appropriate way to communicate within constantly changing circumstances.
