Begüm Erciyas was involved in various dance projects in Turkey, while studying molecular biology and genetics in Ankara. Later, she studied choreography and is now living between Berlin and Brussels. Since 2015, Begüm has been developing transdisciplinary formats, which go beyond the frontal blackbox setting and which invite the singular audience members to be alone with the work. The tension between isolation and togetherness is always a central topic. She also engages artistically with new communication technologies that define and challenge our sense of collectivity. Her work has been presented by places such as Kunstenfestivaldesarts in Brussels, Münchner Kammerspiele, Theatre Nanterre-Amandiers and Pact Zollverein. Between 2021 and 2026, she is artist-in-residence at DeSingel Antwerp.
