Ayşe Orhon

Ayşe Orhon, Bosnian descent, born in Boston, grew-up in Istanbul, is a performer and choreographer recently based in Berlin. She is a graduate of Artez (HKA) in 2001 and the Master of Choreography program in Amsterdam (AHK) with her research "Permeable Manifestations" in 2013. Orhon performed her works in diverse festivals in Europe ­such as Can You Repeat? (2007), hava (2009), ÇOK (2010), folk (2011), thinging (2013); where the audience members eventually became the only actors of the event.  Recently she has facilitated a project together with Litó Walkey for Houseclub in HAU (Fearless Listening). Open Spaces knows her from her previous collaboration with Christina Ciupke (At Close Distance).  The common interest in her choreographic works and also teaching, is working with collective presences and a practice of creating a perturbation both in perception and action. In other words, as she is working with movement, sound and text, her focus is on zones between familiar and unfamiliar, between knowing and not knowing, creating a sense of expansion of space and time where the borders are blurred, the thin lines not being able to name where one entity ends and the other starts.
