ICE is choreographed for a body and a bunch of ropes. Bahar Temiz starts from stories about polar explorers, and their expeditions to Antarctica in the beginning of the 20th century. Driven by a desire for discovery, they expose themselves to extreme conditions and put their lives at risk, and step into an unknown world of ice – a world that is now fading away. Past and future coexist under the dazzling crust of the cold.

“The world is constantly changing, and humans constantly develop new technologies to survive. I find that relentless drive depressing and exciting in equal measure.”

Bahar Temiz

In the contemplative universe of ICE, Temiz manipulates the ropes to create ever-changing landscapes and moving sculptures. Or would it be the ropes that manipulate her? With a soundscape by Charo Calvo, and lit by Pol Matthé, she weaves a dance of discovery, conquest, survival and surrender. The performance sits somewhere between dance, theatre, architecture and visual art, and invites those present to navigate time, space - and themselves.

Bahar Temiz was born in Istanbul and moved to Europe to study philosophy, at the Sorbonne in Paris, and dance, at the Artez Dance Academy in Netherlands. She has worked as a performer with, among others, Superamas and the choreographer Ivana Müller. In 2018 Marc Vanrunxt created the solo White on White for her. Bahar Temiz' own work as a choreographer is characterized by a strong visual language and a transdisciplinary approach. She draws inspiration from literature, philosophy and history. Her work has been shown in Europe, Lebanon and Turkey.
