Naz Yeni is a PhD student at Anglia Ruskin University. After a career in professional theatre, she developed an interest in teaching drama, dance and English. Her MA dissertation in applied linguistics was an analysis of ‘the role of language in presenting social reality and the interpretation of discourse’ (King’s College London). Her MEd thesis was a case study about ‘the experiences of year 10 drama students during the teaching of a set text from a multimodal perspective’ (Cambridge University). Her current research in ARU focuses on ‘staging the text and the director’s interpretation of the playwright’s linguistic style’. Koroglu, her latest project has been accepted by the Turkish State Theatres. The play is based on a well-known folk tale and the theatrical adaptation uses Yasar Kemal’s contemporary version of this legend. The performance is a re-working of traditional story-telling from a postmodern angle using physical theatre techniques.
