The Whisperers: Performance

Leyya Mona Tawil Henna Chou Chris Cogburn Parham Daghighi
Presented in partnership with The Contemporary Austin

This performance is a convergence of practices by Leyya Mona Tawil, Henna Chou, Chris Cogburn, and Parham Daghighi in response to the exhibition Tarek Atoui: The Whisperers, on view at The Contemporary Austin April 9 – August 14, 2022.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Chou, Cogburn, and Daghighi are musicians-in-residence at The Contemporary, where they experiment with materials used in Atoui’s practice and lead workshops with community collaborators. Tawil performed as a previous artist-in-residence with Atoui at the Sharjah Art Foundation (Sharjah, United Arab Emirates). With their individual modes of exploring sound and movement, the four artists will activate the installation through an improvised performance.
