Hello! I am Muge! I am a Turkish & British director/producer , writer , performer.
I was born in Istanbul; where East meets West! And since late 1990s, I've been in London, the most linguistically diverse city globally and one of the most culturally and artistically diverse hub in the world!
I am always keen to connect with artists, filmmakers from around the world who are willing to bring a new approach to art and performance on stage and moving image.

I am very much interested in diverse productions, stories that connects East & the West. I am also very interested in ancient cultures and stories. (Did you know that Istanbul has served as an imperial capital for over 1500 years. It was the capital of the Eastern Roman (330–1204), Latin (1204–1261), Byzantine (1261–1453), and Ottoman (1453–1922) empires! The earliest known settlement in Istanbul is from the Copper Age period, with artifacts dating from 5500 to 3500 BC. This rich history also creates many legends, mysteries which inspired many authors, filmmakers around the world like Agatha Christie to Jules Dassin.
I love exploring new ways to engage audience with the stage/performance/play and introducing diverse/different depths in characters.
Exploring characters, stories, situations and building the reactions/actions/relations happening in that momentary space/time truly excites me! Understanding and interpreting those stories, characters, moments of experiences through productions on stage and film and creating that exciting bond with the audience is hugely inspiring!
If you have any projects that you wish to work/collaborate with me, please get in touch.
Additionally, if you have any questions about Turkish Culture, filming in Turkey, permissions, locations, cast or need help with portraying Turkish characters on screen, stage, games or need coaching about Turkish language, I am here to help!
