A Defense

Aylin Kuryel

A Defense portrays one of the Academics for Peace in Turkey while preparing for her upcoming appearance in court in 2019.

In 2015 thousands of academics signed a petition against state violence in the Kurdish region of Turkey. Academics for Peace were put on trial with the charge of terrorist propaganda. A Defense portrays one of the AfP while preparing for her appearance in court in 2019. A psychodrama is put on stage where she is the state, the academic and the cook. It's a self-portrait on the absurdity of how the state sneaks into the house of an academic forcing her to adjust her words, body and gestures.
