A Theatre Play is a Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience!

Tekfen Holding is one of the Event Sponsors for the 22nd Istanbul Theatre Festival, which is to take place between 17 November and 4 December. Tekfen has traditionally supported a production by a Turkish theatre company at every Theatre Festival, and this year Timsah ('The Crocodile'), which is to be staged by 'DasDas', is the play chosen. Timsah is based on a short story by Fyodor Dostoevsky, and will feature Ozan Güven in the leading role.

This year's Festival will include 52 events staged by 24 theatre, dance and performance companies (12 from Turkey and 12 from other countries). In addition, there will be a range of free activities such as play readings, talks, film showings, workshops and master classes.


At a press briefing at the Zorlu Performing Arts Center (PSM) on 5 September, Reha Yolalan - Tekfen Holding's Vice President of Corporate Affairs - was handed a plaque commemorating Tekfen's sponsorship by Bülent Eczacıbaşı, Chairman of the Board at the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV).
