Yoni Ki Baat
Yoni Ki Baat is a growing collection of authentic, bold, vivid, tender, powerful, and poignant stories written and narrated by South Asian women and trans community members. YKB acknowledges that sexuality and gender are essential--and sometimes fluid--aspects of identity, experience and expression. Under the guidance of this years director, Uma Rao, the 13th YKB will be a space that transforms and encourages SA womxn, trans, and gender non conforming folks to express their challenges, hopes, dreams, breakdowns, and aspirations for change.
Yoni is a complex word: it is used to refer to the vagina or vulva. In Sanskrit it can also mean "sacred space" and serve as a symbol for divine creative energy. Baat means talk in Hindi/Urdu. Each year, YKB stories evoke the literal and metaphorical meaning of the title, and in 2018, we again invite you to come share this space with us and experience the voices of our performers, in all of their diversity.
Inspired by Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues, Yoni Ki Baat was originally started in 2003 by South Asian Sisters, a progressive collective of South Asian women based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Today, Yoni Ki Baat is performed across the United States and empowers participants and audiences to tell their own stories honestly and fearlessly with the larger goal of contributing to individual and community transformation.
