Hero’s Handbook

I designed the line animations and coded a player tool for the piece directed by Şule Ateş. Animations implemented by Design-Insitu. I programmed a Player tool, which  is custom designed and coded for this piece, also can be used in similar performances. It is open source and free to use. You can download and use it.

Hero’s Handbook
Written by: İlhami Algör Adapted & Directed by: Şule Ateş Digital Dramaturgy: Ekmel Ertan Light Design:Yüksel Aymaz Assistant Director: Tanju Girişken Performer: Deniz Celiloğlu

Adapted from İlhami Algör’s novels Albayım Beni Nezahat ile Evlendir (Colonel, Marry Me to Nezahat) and Fakat Müzeyyen Bu Derin Bir Tutku (But Müzeyyen, This is a Deep Passion), this performance tells the story of a man who takes a mind trip following the image of a “hero” in the streets of Istanbul. Accompanied by a video animation, this entertaining story takes the audience to the naive and familiar world of black and white movies and questions the image of “heroic man” in the minds of a generation who grew up with these images.

Lasts app. 70′; no intermission.
Co-Produced by: Talimhane Tiyatrosu, Istanbul Theatre Festival
