Tura New Music is proud to be presenting with Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Never tilt your chair back on two legs, performed at PICA in April.
The performance brings together award-winning female musicians Louise Devenish, Leah Scholes, Vanessa Tomlinson and composer Kate Neal.
The double-bill interweaves action, notation and gesture. Set at a formal dinner table, the percussionists re-enact etiquette using utensils engaged with eating and drinking, chronicling two centuries of table dining implements and customs.
This work focuses on the evolving roles of women and reworking a traditionally male music-theatre piece, Mauricio Kagel’s Dressur, into a work for the female voice.
