iDans Festival, Istanbul - September 2010

PART ONE

Building of three large cats for iKEDi workshops in Istanbul

In September 2010 Roger and M!a van Zyl travelled to Istanbul for another project in collaboration with Airan Berg. Roger created three 4M long cats that were operated from the back of a vehicle by local manipulators.

With the assistance of M!a van Zyl he also designed 5 smaller puppets based on everyday creatures seen in the city. They were built by the general public at workshops around Istanbul.

Over 20 teachers were employed and shown how to build the puppets. They in turn helped the citizens of Istanbul build 4500 puppets.

This project is called iKEDi (Istanbul Cat) and is part of the yearly iDANS festival. Due to the success of the project we will be repeating the exercise later this year (2012)

The cat puppets were first created by Roger as miniatures in South Africa and then scaled up 10 times in a film studio at Bilgi University in Istanbul.

These were seen all over Istanbul and were used to draw crowds to the workshops.
