Never tilt your chair back on two legs
10 - 11 April
Artists | Louise Devenish, Leah Scholes and Vanessa Tomlinson
Presented by PICA and Tura New Music

'Never tilt your chair back on two legs' brings together Australia’s leading female percussionists to present a sonic double-bill interweaving 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.

With an emphasis on the evolving roles of women, 'Never tilt your chair back on two legs' highlights the practices of four award-winning Australian female musicians, featuring the premiere of a new work by composer Kate Neal (VIC) alongside the Australian premiere of the seminal 1970’s music-theatre work Dressur by Mauricio Kagel. Originally designed for the male voice and body, Kagel’s Dressur will be reworked for three female voices, becoming a significant contribution to the performance and history of the work, forty years after its premiere.
