Bakcell, the First Mobile Operator and the Fastest Mobile Internet Provider of Azerbaijan was the main sponsor of the second M.A.P. International Theatre Festival organized by YARAT Contemporary Art Space at various major venues across Baku in the period from 6 – 11 November 2018.

“Bakcell is proud to be the main sponsor of the M.A.P. Festival for a second year in a row. Just as the last year, this year’s performances were very successful and attracted a wide attention of the theater and performance fans, as well as the regular citizens. I think this event is very significant at the national and international levels and we are thankful to YARAT for such a great and well-organized initiative. We will continue doing our best to ensure Bakcell’s contribution to development of arts and culture in Azerbaijan as well as to promotion of spiritual values among the country’s younger generation” said Bakcell CEO Nikolai Beckers.

Being a platform for communication, education, exchange of knowledge and experience, the M.A.P. Festival (music, art and performance) combined different forms of theatre to introduce the audience to wide range of contemporary theatrical forms. This year the festival featured 16 performances by well-known and prestigious theatre companies from Italy, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Iran, Japan, Switzerland, Russia and the United Kingdom. Unique performances presented within the frames of the festival drew enormous attention of the public and left unforgettable impressions on Azerbaijani theater fans. The performances were accompanied by a rich programme of workshops and lectures, enabling emerging directors, actors, playwrights and other professionals to meet and learn from their fellow colleagues.

“We wanted to present a theatre festival that connects cultures, erases borders and unites people through the arts and helps to get acquainted with the contemporary theatrical performances from all over the world. The success of this year’s M.A.P. festival demonstrates that Azerbaijani viewers of all ages have great interest in various theatrical genres and this inspires us to continue our work for the sake of development of art and culture in our country. I would particularly like to express my appreciation to Bakcell for the initiative taken in sponsoring our festival. For the second year in a row Bakcell, as the main sponsor of M.A.P. festival, demonstrates commitment and contribution to the development of arts and culture in Azerbaijan” said Artistic Director of YARAT Suad Garayeva-Maleki.

M.A.P. Festival, a highlight of Azerbaijan’s autumn calendar, has paved the way for the return of theatre to its former weight and significance in the cultural life of Azerbaijan.

Being a national telecoms operator, Bakcell has a long time tradition of supporting large-scale sports and cultural events in Azerbaijan.

About YARAT

YARAT is an artist-founded, not-for-profit art organisation based in Baku, Azerbaijan, established by Aida Mahmudova in 2011. YARAT (which means 'create' in Azerbaijani) is dedicated to contemporary art with a long-term commitment to creating a hub for artistic practice, research, thinking and education in the Caucasus, Central Asia and surrounding region.

YARAT comprises YARAT Art Centre, ARTIM Project Space, YARAT Studios, YAY Gallery and an extended educational and public programme. YARAT Art Centre, a 2000m² converted Soviet-era naval building, opened in March 2015 and is the organisation’s main exhibition space. The exhibition programme features new commissions by artists responding to the region. It supports and provides access to artists from the region, while engaging and introducing established, international artists.

In October 2015, YARAT opened ARTIM, a central, accessible and dynamic space in Baku’s Old City. ARTIM (meaning 'progress' in Azerbaijani) shows experimental practices and new work by emerging Azerbaijani art professionals (selected through open calls) and international artists from the residency programme. It features multiple small-scale projects each year and hosts ARTIM LAB, a programme enabling young artists to engage in workshops and daily studio practice to generate new ideas and works.

In 2016, YARAT launched a renewed residency programme. Aimed at developing young Azerbaijani voices and emerging international artists, the focus is on new, innovative practices and artists with an interest in the region. The residency programme hosts six international and four local artists a year at YARAT Studios’ spaces.

Education has been at the heart of YARAT's activities since its creation. With a dedicated public programme that includes courses, workshops, lectures, screenings, festivals, literature and theatre clubs and family weekends, YARAT aims to give access to broad audiences of all ages. The public programme invests proactively in building communities and nurturing a wider understanding of, and participation in, contemporary art.
