Pera Museum is adding a new event involving every field of art. Its event program brings different disciplines together with theater readings this season on Sept. 9. The two plays, "Peki" (Alright) and "Doppelganger" (Ghostly Double), by young writer and actor Nadir Sönmez will be read at Pera Cafe. Sönmez has drawn attention for his work at Didaskali Theater.
"Peki" presents an entertaining and satirical perspective. In the reading, the character of Beril will be read by Hale Sürel, Tilbe will be read by Kübra Alp and Sönmez will read the character of Kürşat. "Doppelganger" focuses on a meeting at a queer night club in Istanbul. In the reading, the character Zeki will be read by Sinan Berksöz and Ela will be read by Reyhan Özdilek. These free readings will start on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 5 p.m. at Pera Cafe.
