Film still from Ghita Skali's film 'Natuurlijk', showing a collage consisting of archival images of a toilet combined with images of the Kabareh Cheikhats performing their song.

On Friday July 7th, Ghita Skali will host her Background Evening, welcoming Casablanca-based performers Kabareh Cheikhats.

For Ghita’s Background Evening, 1646 welcomes Kabareh Cheikhats: a Moroccan chaabi (folk music) cabaret theatrical performance troupe based in Casablanca. The song in Ghita’s film Natuurlijk was co-written and performed by Ghassan El Hakim and Amin Naouni, who are part of Kabareh Cheikhats. In their performance, male actors play the roles of women, paying homage to the Cheikhats,  who are popular female entertainers such as Fatna Ben Lhoucine or Haja Hamounia.

Our door opens at 19:00. After the performance, you will be able to take your reserved watering can home with you.


About Ghita Skali:

Ghita Skali is an artist based in Amsterdam. She studied in France, first at Villa Arson, Nice then at the post-graduate program of the Fine Arts School in Lyon. She was a De Ateliers (Amsterdam) participant between 2018 and 2020.

Skali uses odd news, rumours and propaganda to disrupt institutional power structures such as the western contemporary art world, state oppression and government politics. Her work often ends up as a strong critique with outcomes that penetrate channels that go beyond the exhibition space taking the form of informal trade of goods, legal documents, and things you take home for a warm night tea.

She notably exhibited her work recently at Kunsthal extra City (Antwerp), Palais de Tokyo (Paris) and at the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam).
