Taşköprü: A Historic Crossing
Date: 28 Jul 2021
Location: Taşköprü, Sinanpaşa, 01220 Yüreğir/Adana
In this public performance, Little Amal will cross Adana’s historic Taşköprü stone bridge. Performers from Adana’s famous Orange Blossom Carnival will welcome the young refugee by forming a symbolic bridge in the sky, for her and for other people in transit and need.
Taşköprü (Stone bridge), historically known as Ponte Sarus, is a Roman bridge spanning the Seyhan River in Adana that was probably built in the first half of the second century AD. The bridge was a key link in ancient trade routes from the Mediterranean Sea to Anatolia and Persia.
Now, Taşköprü regularly hosts social and cultural events; a place to connect and bring people together.
