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 1970s music-theatre work Dressur by Mauricio Kagel.
Showing at PICA on 10 & 11 April at 7:30pm. Tickets available here.
