Audiences from Darwin to Perth are raving about the success of The Reef program. From the power of Mick Sowry and Jon Frank’s film, the virtuosity of Richard Tognetti, the passion of ACO2, the soul of Steve Pigram and Mark Frank to the raw energy of Clay McDonald – The Reef has provided audiences from the North to the West an experience to remember for a lifetime . With just one final sold out concert left in Sydney next week, The Reef tour is almost over and it certainly has been a wild ride. Here’s just some of the images from a very dramatic performance at Cable Beach Amphitheatre in Broome.
Illustrator Hugo Muecke was invited to tag along on the long journey from the East to the West Coast for The Reef Residency by Taylor Miller and Derek Hyne to document the trip through his drawings. These illustrations are very much inspired by the landscape and while simplistic and even somewhat whimiscal, bely a depth that reflects the intricacies of the journey and the many complexities of The Reef itself. Enjoy!
