Mustafa and Fatih are two artists.
One from Diyarbakır, one from İstanbul. One living in Diyarbakır, one living in İzmir.
They set out to make a performance together. That’s it.
Smuggled Tea Performance follows the two year journey of two artists from different corners of Turkey.
It is a story of being (an artist) or not being.
A story that wants to dance. A dance piece that refuses to tell a story.
Which takes place within the time it takes to brew and enjoy a cup of good old smuggled tea from Diyarbakır

The world premiere of the piece was cancelled due to Covid-19.
