An iteration of Khal, an ongoing project begun by Helga Fassonaki in Tabriz, Iran will be exhibited at The Auricle Sonic Arts Gallery from 8 October – 31. Fassonaki sent sixteen sculptural scores abroad for sixteen female artists to interpret and perform publicly in response to a ban on female solo performances in Iran. The original scores and recorded interpretations by the participating artists will be exhibited.

Five local artists will be performing Fassonaki’s scores live on 9 October:
Stainer Black-Five (Jo Burzynska) – performing ‘One Two Sides Dirty’
Mela (Helen Greenfield) – performing ‘Remove’
Misfit Mod (Sarah Kelleher) – performing ‘Hair Porn’
French Concession (Ella) – performing ‘Heavy Light’
Instant Fantasy (Gemma Syme) – performing ‘One Song Two Sides Bold Breathing’
