After a series of happy and unpredictable events, Öykü moved from Istanbul to Montréal in 2014 and completed Concordia University's Design For The Theatre program in 2016. Since arriving in Canada she has collaborated with different artists from various backgrounds in theatre, music and dance. Öykü tries to combine her own experiences with that of her collaborators', rooted in the belief that art is a crucial step towards a better understanding among people. Most recently she designed lights for Je Suis La Fille in Tangente Danse and toured with The Village to the United Arab Emirates. She is equally currently a member of the production team for Concordia University's Faculty of Fine Arts.
