The Reef5 - 23 July 2012
Begin Ticket Purchase >>
In his most adventurous project to date, Richard Tognetti takes musicians and surfers
to the rugged surf coast and tough desert landscape of northern Western Australia
to create a new performance piece at the intersection of music and nature.
Travelling with Tognetti to world heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef, making music and surfing with the locals, is a remarkable collection of artists: photographer Jon Frank, director Mick Sowry, composer Iain Grandage, didgeridoo player Mark Atkins, singer Stephen Pigram and the young musicians of ACO2.
Together they’ll create a performance using music and film to further delve into the links between surfing, the ocean, landscape and music previously illuminated in Musica Surfica and The Glide.
The Reef is a co-production by the ACO and Tura New Music, created at Ningaloo Reef in May 2012.
