biriken Founded by theatre actor Okan Urun and video artist Melis Tezkan in January 2006. They are concentrating in pluridisciplinary art on theater.
"Working at the intersection of performance art, installation art, and traditional theater practice, Tezkan and Urun exploit their divergent backgrounds—she studied media and communication and has worked extensively in video production, while he studied theater and acting—to create performative works that, in the Brechtian tradition, draw attention to the constructed nature of reality both within and outside of the performance space. In their projects, live performance mixes freely with projected video, looped audio, and/or textual elements, leveling the playing field between sensory experiences and representational techniques."
