Taking its name after tourna/tούρνα (crane); a migratory bird that resonates with strong symbolism in many cultures and mythologies; with A Thousand Cranes, Cigdem too is migrating through ages and across borders to continue her journey and explore songs of Athens, the Balkans and South East Anatolia.
