AJANS UNIVERSITE – Ahmet Çağatay BAYRAKTAR
Translated by Begüm ERGİNBAY
In the event, historical development was discussed with Istanbul Municipal Theatres General Art Director Erhan Yazıcıoğlu and theatre artist Jeyan Ayral Tözüm. Sharing memories from 77 years of her art life, Tözüm asserted that Darülbedayi in Muhsin Ertuğrul’s time, accomplished great things despite all the impossibilities.
Asserting that theatres must be protected, Yazıcıoğlu said that the occupancy rate of Municipal Theatres increased 98 percent through time in which he took over the general art directorship. Underlining also that Municipal Theatres are schools promoting art from past to present, Yazıcıoğlu said that theatre school would be established as a part of Municipal Theatres for the youth who wants to be theatre artists. Conveying that the school would accept students by examination, Yazıcıoğlu stated that school would be free and Municipal Theatres’ artists would train.
At the end of the talk, young artists of Municipal Theatres sang songs of many theatre plays from ‘Lüküs Hayat’ (Luxurious Life) to ‘Damdaki Kemancı’ (Fiddler on the Roof).
