This is one flash mob out of 7 which took place on
Istanbul's favorite shopping street Istiklal Caddesi at Taksim as part of the Yaratici Sokaklar Festivali in September 2010.
It was a Circus and Street Theatre festival, part of a cultural exchange program between two European Capitals of Culture for 2010 Pecs (Hungary) and Istanbul (Turkey). Members of the Hungarian Juggling Association worked together with arts professionals from Turkey, PERA Fine Arts, students, local and international volunteers.
All the flash mobs were performed 4 times at different places on the day they were created as a result of a two and a half hour workshop.
We had great feedback on the project from the community and from our diverse audience, I hope you enjoy this video too.
