Interview with PRN FM Radio in NYC

I am so excited to share with you this 45-minute Radio Interview that I did together with Jack Feldstein for The Progressive Radio Network in Manhattan last Thursday!  The interview starts with questions about my life as an actor here in NYC and then it focusses on the work I do with Jack on the theater show “Carnival Of Souls: Neon Animation + Live Action”.

This is the whole video registration of the interview for Insight Live With Host Mark Farrell – The Progressive Radio Network:

Enjoy! And thank you for your attention!

“That must have been a kick in the head”

Here’s a little taste from last night’s show at WorkShop Theater!

What a wonderful audience you were!

Thank you so very much for your support last night! Thank you to everyone who came out to see our show. It was fantastic to perform it for you all. The Workshop Theater was packed!

And it was the first time I performed the show with this particular character that I came up with last week, and Jack and I will keep exploring her. You were such a great audience and you all gave so much energy to both of us, and you really inspired us to keep going on this incredibly artistic and experimental journey! Jack and I got some terrific new ideas to go ahead and develop the piece further now that I have found this new character.

I am so grateful for you being there last night. And a very special shoutout to Thomas Coté and Dana Leslie Goldstein for making our show at the Workshop happen! Thank you!

 

“Destiny’s Smile” released in the theaters in China

I’m thrilled to announce that the Chinese feature film “Destiny’s Smile” in which I played a small role has been released in China last week! 🙌 Check out the IMDB page!

I had such a blast working on this film two years ago on the filmset in Chelsea. I met the whole Chinese film crew there when they were in New York for three weeks to shoot the New York scenes on location. They had hired an American director to work together with the Chinese director to communicate the notes for us actors in the scenes. Can’t wait to see this movie 🎥! With English subtitles. I don’t speak Chinese yet 🤗.

 

“Karma” Is A Masterpiece

Wow! 🤗 This is a truly beautiful review that Utah Film Awards has written about the short movie Karma that I am in:
“Karma is a masterpiece that baffles the mind, packed with mystery and suspense!”
“Job well done Irmak Tasindi. You’ve created an award-worthy film on the verge of worldwide recognition.”

A modern take on a brilliant cult film that’s been neon animated by Jack Feldstein. Annemarie Hagenaars plays a contemporary woman of the #metoo era, taking over the role of the 1960’s woman in the film and giving the female protagonist today’s pro-active stance.

Performing three different projects three days in a row!

I’m looking back on a wonderful, inspiring and artistically fulfilling weekend. It started on Friday when Jack had invited a Broadway producer to come and see our rehearsal of “Carnival of Souls: The Neon Animation plus Live Action” . The show is significantly growing every time we work on it! And it is so much fun to find new things, to tweak here and there.

After our rehearsal in Midtown I went straight to Port Authority Bus Terminal to catch my bus Upstate New York. I traveled to gorgeous Mount Tremper where I stayed for the night before I started working on “Eleemosynary” with Marnie Andrews. This reading was full of fire and passion and the audience was very responsive! We were thrilled and the adrenaline was rushing through my body after the show.

I stayed for another night upstate to breathe the fresh air of the woods before returning back to the city on Sunday morning, just in time for the rehearsal of “One Woman’s Story”, the story of a woman who travels from America to Europe in 1938 to go on adventure and ends up being in the Bunker in 1945 as one of Hitler’s secretaries. What a great compelling story written by Fred Pezzulli, and I feel so fortunate to play the lead role of the woman and working along side 9 wonderful actors last night!

After a rehearsal in the afternoon and the performance in the evening, I got home, took a bath and went straight to bed. I fell asleep exhausted, but very happy and satisfied. What a weekend! Thank you New York for these fantastic acting experiences! I feel so fortunate to be here, amongst the fantastic people you can only find here and nowhere else!
