It Was A Calm And Chilly Morning The Day I Left

In their last play "It was a Calm and Chilly Morning the Day I left" VEDST Theater Group is yet again creating a special stage design which shapes their play. The audience who's surrounded by a fantastic amusement park atmosphere is confronted with a magical reality created by the play in which six characters, in an "imaginary" country where there is an increasing violation of freedom, search for a solution to their situation. The play lays out a political atmosphere in which the audience is expected to correlate with his/her own existence.  While the carnivalesque metaphor of an amusement park is subverted, the references are also de-contextualized. As the play unfolds issues related to freedom violations, Turkish/Armenian conflicts, massacres related to differences in religious sects, Kurdish identity and sexual exploitation and discrimination of underage girls are under focus. The play creates a space for the audience to break the codes and decipher the meanings...
