CULTURE / THEATRE
After a sell-out run in January, a play about the Turkish ‘Gezi’ protests last year returns to the Arcola for two more performances in their larger theatre this Sunday. Directed by Seçil Honeywill, Say Your Name questions the relationship between big corporations, the government and media. It centres on the events at Gezi Park on 28 May when a few hundred people from different walks of life came together to protect their green space and peacefully protest against the privatisation of public areas. When Gezi turned into nationwide protests, alarm bells started to ring about
authoritarian government that is constantly telling its citizens how to live
their lives. Turkey
The play is performed in Turkish with English surtitles.
