Tekfen Foundation Supports Theater Festival

Tekfen Foundation has become one of the performance sponsors for the 19th Istanbul Theater Festival to be held between May 10 and June 5, 2014. Tekfen Foundation has given its support to King (My Fool) Lear by Altıdan Sonra Tiyatro and Becoming a Rhinoceros 2.014 by Şahika Tekand.

King (My Fool) Lear is an interpretation of Shakespeare's famous play, probably staged thousands of times, as a retelling of the story by the king's fool, the one person nearest to Lear who has the courage to tell it as it is. The play will be performed at Üsküdar Tekel Sahnesi on Thursday, May 15 and Friday, May 16.

Becoming a Rhinoceros 2.014 is an entertaining and fast-paced contemporary comedy written and directed by Şahika Tekand, and will be performed again at Üsküdar Tekel Sahnesi on Wednesday, June 4 and Thursday, June 5. Staged for the first time during the 95-96 season, the play will be re-interpreted by Studio Oyuncuları, founded by Şahika Tekand, on their 25th anniversary.
