September Double Treat
Isn’t that always the way? September comes and you can’t decide which concert, which exhibition, which film to go to!
It’s another such September in Istanbul. As if that weren’t enough, this September is a double treat. Besides all the usual offerings, the cultural ants are also on the job for Istanbul 2010 Capital of Culture while the grasshoppers sit back and watch.
Among the events not to be missed is ‘Legendary Istanbul - From Byzantion to Istanbul: 8000 Years of a Capital’, at the Sakıp Sabancı Museum through September 4th. If you still haven’t seen it, tomorrow is none too soon to go there and get in line.
THIS SEPTEMBER IS UNFORGETTABLE
The U2 Concert is another Istanbul 2010 European Capital of Culture event in September that will be remembered for years. We are truly living in unforgettable times.
Another boon is that almost the entire month of Ramadan falls in September this year. And Istanbul 2010 European Capital of Culture hasn’t forgotten that. Besides a whole range of Ramadan events like concerts, shows and exhibitions, there is also ‘A Vanishing Istanbul Ritual: Teravih-i Enderun and Public Muezzinship’, a Classical Turkish Music project that will take place in 29 different mosques throughout the month.
The mosques in September are, in turn: Maltepe Central Mosque, Büyükada Abdulhamid II Mosque, Yavuz Sultan Selim Mosque at Fatih, Beylerbeyi Hamid-i Evvel Mosque in Üsküdar, the Great Mecidiye Mosque at Ortaköy, Üsküdar Selimiye Mosque, Abdulhamid II Mosque at Emirgan, and Sultanahmet, or the Blue Mosque.
IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF EVLİYA ÇELEBİ
The third phase of ‘Golden Routes’, an Istanbul European Capital of Culture project followed not just by Istanbul but by the whole world, is starting on September 20th. The project, which will trace the footsteps of Turkish traveler Evliya Çelebi in the Balkans and Central Europe, is going through Bulgaria, Macedonia, Kosovo, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Croatia to Pecs, another 2010 European Capital of Culture, and from there to Budapest, Vienna, Frankfurt and Mannheim to the Ruhr district, another of the three European Capitals of Culture in 2010.
Among the events, which run through October 15th, are concerts - ‘Three Women’, ‘Bezmara’ and ‘A Nazım - Brecht Meeting by ‘Sema’, a modern dance show called ‘aHHval’ by Zeynep Günsür and her troupe, and a lecture entitled ‘Evliya Çelebi and Music’. Writer Emine Çaykara and photographer Serkan Taycan are on the team, which will make their journey by bus.
