Editorial Design Taldans has been established in Istanbul by Mustafa Kaplan and Filiz Sızanlı in 2003. Kaplan and Sızanlı have created many independent and collaborative projects. Some of the projects they have created together are Sek Sek (2002), Solum (2005), Graf (2006), Dokuman (2009) and Eskiyeni (2011). Taldans was named after the Theater Research Laboratory (TAL) of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Theater in which a movement-dance research unit was established by Mustafa Kaplan. A number of individuals who used these studios by the support of Ayla Algan and Beklan Algan have founded ÇATI (Contemporary Dance Artists) Association after leaving Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Theater.
