L'APRES-MIDI D'UN FAUNE BY ISMET KOROGLU AND CIHAN BACAK

Inspired by Stephane Mallarme’s poem named ‘L’Apres-midi d’un Faune’ (The Afternoon of a Faun) (1876)

It describes the sensual experiences of a faun who has just woken up from his afternoon sleep and discusses his encounters with several nymphs during the morning in a dreamlike monologue.

This poem also served basis for the musical composition 'Prelude a l'pares-midi d'un Faune' (Prelude to the Afternoon of A Faun) (1894) by Claude Debussy which inspired Vaslav Nijinsky's ballet piece 'L'apres-midi d'un Faune' (The Afternoon of A Faun) (1912).​​​​​​​
