Turkish theatres struggle to survive amid pandemic


Istanbul, March 27 (EFE / EPA), (Camera: Erdem Sahin).- Arts and culture sector in Turkey are struggling to survive amid the pandemic, which forced authorities to close theatres and venues for months. Lockdown began on March 16, 2020, and marked the beginning of months without income for dozens of Istanbul companies. The theatres reopened in July, but then they faced another difficulty: the fear of going out or spending time in closed places.The following implementation of a night curfew and the weekend lockdown did not help. However, for some companies, the situation represented the opportunity to reinvent themselves. This is the case of the Adam Theater, which broadcasts its performances online.

It's a bit of a paradox because financially, we've had less income from tickets, of course, but we've made up for it with patronage. I have been able to spend more time searching for that financing and the result for 2020 is that it has never been so good financially.2. There has been a fully public patronage agreement with the Van Cleef and Arpels Jewellery School, for which we will receive an amount of 40,000 euros per year for three years to research them. That for us is exceptional.3. (Being closed), we had to get close to the public. During the first confinement, I made a daily video about rocks and their properties. In front of my camera, with my little rocks… it was a little geology course.
