The dance performance Zarf & Portakal was staged on the 11 February 2016 at the Cemal Resit Rey Concert Hall, Istanbul. It opened a concert addressing the issue of 'Violence against Women', organized by the Turkish percussionist Okay Temiz. Its title is a metaphorical expression of two powerful sensations that emerged through the investigation of this subject through dance. Zarf is the Turkish word for envelope, evoked by the clothing and concealment of a woman's body and existence. The concept of female jouissance, as used by Helene Cixous to describe the physical, mental and spiritual aspects that come together in female sexual pleasure, is expressed through Portakal, meaning an orange, the fruit.
