Turkish-Dutch star set to tour Turkey
‘Nilgün Yerli will perform her own show ‘Yerli Yersiz’ in various venues.Nilgün Yerli, a Royal Dutch Theater actress of Turkish origin, is set to go before audiences for the first time in Istanbul with her show “Yerli Yersiz.”
The cabaret style show written by the actress, who is inspired by current issues, will be in Istanbul at the end of April and the beginning of May.
Yerli, who has been living in the Netherlands for 30 years and has performed in the Netherlands and various European cities with eight of her own shows, aims to establish a bridge between cultures that have prejudices against each other. The artist depicts multicultural social life and “the melancholy of life from different angles” in her own words, stages her shows with a humorous language and enriches them with music.
“Let’s talk frankly, let’s share our thoughts and feelings regardless of the environment and situation, and without judging anyone,” the actress said about the show “Yerli Yersiz.”
Yerli, who last year performed one of her shows in Turkish for the first time, will be on stage at Zorlu Center PSM on April 29, Moda Oyun Atölyesi on May 6 and at the Profilo Culture Center on May 8 and 9.
She will also meet audiences in the Black Sea province of Trabzon between May 13 and 15 within the scope of the 16th International Black Sea Theater Festival and go on a tour in the southeastern province of Diyarbakır, as well as the southern provinces of Adana and Mersin, from May 19 to 25.
Yerli is also known as a writer, with six books to her name. At a recent ceremony at the Royal Museum, she was listed on the list of 50 most influential Turks in the Netherlands as a comedian and writer.
