Scheherazade 

Welcome to 1970s Soho. Welcome to the Scheherazade nightclub where everything is for
sale. Step right up for an evening of debauchery, of beauty, of brutality and an introduction
to a Maltese criminal underworld that makes bank from bodies.

For her solo show at Valletta Contemporary, artist Charlie Cauchi drew from the histories of a violent episode in London’s club scene, where Maltese vice bosses laid on entertainment for party-goers that came at a high price for those entangled in its production.

As a London-born woman of Maltese descent, Cauchi has woven stories of

Maltese migration and the role of female protagonists in a male world of organised crimeinto a number of previous works, but Scheherazade represents the largest scaleexamination of this to date.
