Legend of Aspendos in Antalya
ANTALYA“The Legend of Aspendos,” a new project by the Turkish dance troupe Fire of Anatolia, will be on the stage for the first time on Aug. 8 at the historical Aspendos Theater.
Fire of Anatolia, which has so far staged more than 3,850 shows in front of 35 million people in 93 countries, has worked for the new project with 120 dancers for more than a year, according to its director, Mustafa Erdoğan.
Erdoğan said they were very excited for the new project. “We have used new techniques in the new project. This big production features the establishment process of the ancient Aspendos Theater. We used the costumes of the era and chariots. We have made a feature film featuring the story of Aspendos. Our dancers acted in the film. We will reflect the film on the walls of the theater through the video mapping method.”
“The Legend of Aspendos” will be performed two days a week at the ancient theater. Next year the show will be staged at the Topkapı Palace with the same set-up.
