Tura are pleased to announce Tactus by Kate Milligan, Jonty Coy and Olivia Davies with HIP Company will be presented at WA Museum Boola Bardip this April.

In 2017, a renaissance flute was recovered from a shipwreck in the Markermeer, North Holland. The instrument’s journey unfolds in Tactus, a new audio-visual work by Tura’s Summers Night alumni Kate Milligan, Olivia Davies and WA flautist Jonty Coy. In a meeting of experimental music-making and historically informed performance, this intimate work explores the materiality of cultural heritage as it is transformed by time and water.

Produced by Tura and commissioned by the APRA AMCOS Art Music Fund, Tactus traverses time and place in a performance where postmodern and renaissance artistic practices unite to submerge audiences in an antique, experimental, sunken sound-world seldom heard in Australia.

Presented by Tura and the WA Museum. Supported by the State Government of Western Australia through Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries, and the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its principal arts investment and advisory body. This project has also been made possible through St George’s College, Perth.
