"Nejla Yatkin doesn't disappear for an instant, not within a role and not under the impact of movement. She's a performer inside and outside, from a piercing gaze to expressive shoulder blades and from the coils of her long black hair to her finger tips and toes. As a dancer, she measures on a major scale, thanks to a strong, long body and the amplitude she sustains. Watching her can become hypnotic, even off stage".
-Dance View Times
Nejla Yatkin’s work manifests in dance pieces, durational performance installations, and short experimental films. Her physical movement practice examines and seeks connection to place, land, home and memory and is created within a framework of the multi-lingual context and imagery.
