Join Couchsurfing to see ozgul’s full profile. It’s free!
PhD student in Canada. I am originally from Turkey. Ask me anything about Istanbul, and ask for contacts.
I did and still doing performance-based work - solo performance, theatre..
The first thing I am curious about a place that is foreign to me is its theatre/performance scene! Then queer and feminist events. I am always curious to learn about politics of resistance in the places I visit. Best way to do this is to meet people and have good sustained conversations.
I am in between cities right now, but there is chance of me being able to host in Istanbul.

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach Turkish. Can talk about Istanbul for hours.
Probably I am a good company to go see shows, events.
