""Kula" Play: Fading Memories of the Common Past of the Sephardic Jews of Istanbul"

Speaker: Rivka Bihar

Moderator: Noyan Ayturan

The play “Kula”, which is approaching to celebrate its 50th anniversary, actually represents Jewish life in Turkey, although it offers a sequence of the daily lives of Sephardic Jews in Galata Kuledibi. With the establishment of the Republic, the policies applied to the minorities mostly caused the loss of the Sephardic identity formed on the basis of a common language and values to a large extent. In this context, the play "Kula", staged in Ladino language, has got various significations since its first stage in 1979 and today, stands out as a tribute to the longing for the common past, that the Sephardic identity was fully experienced
