Dunya Narly // Contemporary dancer and choreographer

By  Noisy Hype Team, October 25, 2020

Dunya is a professional and very talented contemporary dancer. The Belgian artist with Turkish roots, other than dancing is also a remarkable choreographer.

Her creations carry a solid mark of her identity.

The Noisy Hype team had the pleasure to interview Dunya and discover what drives her work and what inspired her path.

HOW YOUR INTEREST FOR DANCING BEGAN?

“It was my way to develop myself as a person. Dancing came to me at a very young age, it gave me confidence and something to fully live for. It was the only certainty in my life that told me to keep it close. I felt I was transforming myself and taking risks, to be different in my choosing , and to not follow the mainstream of life. What normally I easily could have fallen into”.

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR DANCE?

“Contemporary Dance. I try to reach out and share my life view through dance. Contemporary dance allows us to be ourselves in many different ways. I want to be as honest as possible when I go and present myself on stage. I work with energies that pass through my body , influences of space and time , and mostly the use of freedom”.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN TOPICS OF YOUR CREATIONS?

“I have memories, I have stories and I have feelings. Dance is my way of communication and I like to share my point of view in life. Every single person has their own story and sees the world through their own eyes. I like to connect to people sharing my experiences. Different pictures and imagination. I am a big fan of simplicity , that has a big range of imagination”.

WHERE YOUR INSPIRATIONS COME FROM?

“I have many inspirations, mostly from my colleagues that have been next to me in the same journey. To become a professional , you need to be very strong in your mind, or very stubborn. But most of all you have to enjoy it. My inspirations are mostly people that are full of love for dance and understand the same feeling that I feel when I talk about dancing. Persons that take dance to a level that makes you see , see the beauty in all its colors”.

Our favourite of Dunya’s shows is “The inglorious fortune”, a solo performance that talks about society cliches, where her vision needs everyone else thoughts.
