Rita Says : `The Symphony of Sirens` / `J.O. 26654` performance. Sunday 30th April 4:00pm

On Sunday April 30th at Hundred Years Gallery Rita Says will be presenting 2 short films and 1 new performance: this afternoon event is a celebration of the current centenary of the October Revolution.

Both film pieces are directed by Roland Denning (and produced by Dartmouth Films) for Tariq Ali`s teleSUR Show `The World Today`. The first film is a documentary that features Rita Says discussing the contemporary relevance of `The Symphony of Sirens` created by the Soviet avant garde composer Arseny Avraamov.
The 2nd film is a record of a unique live performance of `The Symphony of Sirens` produced by Rita Says at Limehouse Town Hall in February of this year.

Both Rita Says and Hundred Years Gallery gratefully acknowledge Dartmouth Filmsgenerosity in allowing these documentaries to be screened.

In the second half of the event Rita Says will present `J.O. 26654`. This new performance is the result of research carried out during her recent March to April residency at the gallery, using body movement to generate sound whilst referencing Avraamov`s political and aesthetic practice.
