Vocal performance Lasugrlu: Baabure (SI)

Red Dawns have always nurtured and fulfilled the burning need for the encouragement of local art production. Over the last few years, we have staged the successful burlesque series Fem TV, the first performance of Rdeči kabaret (Red Cabaret), and snippets of lesbian-feminist visual art production Through Her Eyes. This year, we invited five experienced artists who will perform under the name Baabure for this occasion. Depending on the moonlight on the night of the performance, Baabure will furiously, wrathfully, primally, bleatingly, individually, collectively, wildly, gently or convulsively strain their vocal chords from the five windows of Nočna izložba Pešak (Night Window Display Gallery Pešak). Through the play of song and movement, they will reexamine the in/visibility of women, the windows representing the women’s sphere away from the public eye, making the visible less audible and the audible less visible.

Members of the audience will be able to observe the performance standing or sitting on the neatly maintained lawn below the windows or through the binoculars on the observation tower opposite the gallery.  Mural that surrounds the windows of the gallery is work of metelkovian artist Tina Drčar.
