Yallah Sabaya

BAK, basis voor Yallah Sabaya

Yallah Sabaya (“Come, ladies! Enjoy yourselves!” in Arabic) is a special evening just for women, an evening where dance and music connect women from around the world. All women, from every country or culture, are welcome to meet, chat, and dance.

Yallah Sabaya is organized by Welkom in Utrecht, De Voorkamer, and BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht.

 

BAK, basis voor Yallah Sabaya

Yallah Sabaya kicks off a special weekend at BAK. On Friday 21 June, we will warm up the space with Yallah Sabaya, and the BAK Fellows will take it away on Saturday 22 June during the culmination of this year’s post-academic Fellowship Program. This evening program consists of performances, music, installations, hosted space, dancing, bites, and celebration, created together with the BAK 2018/2019 Research Fellows.

 

This edition of Yallah Sabaya is part of the series BAK, basis voor…, in which BAK joins forces with other organizations in addressing shared urgencies and developing propositions for “being together otherwise.” It takes place within the context of the forthcoming project Trainings for the Not-Yet, initiated by artist Jeanne van Heeswijk and BAK from September 2019–January 2020.
