Tura’s Sonus3 Tour features Kimberley singer-songwriter Stephen Pigram with a cross-cultural ensemble of instrumentalists, Iranian percussionist Esfandiar Shahmir, cellist Tristen Parr and flautist Tos Mahoney. For the first time Sonus3 celebrates the collaboration between Tura and Marrugeku, Broome based unique Indigenous and intercultural dance company.
Marrugeku co-Artistic Director Dalisa Pigram and guest dancer Tara Gower feature across Sonus3. Tura and Marrugeku artists have been collaborating over the past two years and this is the first public showing of the outcomes of that work. All touring artists are renowned in their own right and now come together for the first time to present a wealth of original, new music and dance as well as captivating collaborations with local artists.
Sonus3 is a meeting of cultural forces, ancient and contemporary, through song, music and dance reflecting the breadth of Australia. New works feature in a program reflecting the Kimberley communities and landscape travelled through. Tura and Marrugeku present this cross-cultural journey weaving a rich tapestry of uniquely Australian music and dance.
Tura’s Regional Programs promote collaboration and direct involvement with the artists by participants and audiences. Through the outreach programs, the artists engage directly with individuals and groups in the communities, encouraging direct interaction and providing access, involvement, and active participation with the process.
This Tour, as with all of Tura’s award-winning Regional Programs, has come about from 20 years of community engagement and deep relationship building. The Program offers opportunities to make a significant contribution to the social, cultural, educational and community lives of people living in regional centres and remote communities of northern Australia. Tura presents this cross-cultural journey bringing the city to remote Australia and remote Australia to the cities. The tour weaves a rich tapestry of uniquely Australian music.
