Event Details

After huge critical acclaim in 2012 and 2013 in Australia The Reef returns to Sydney for one night only before embarking on its North American tour. Richard Tognetti and crew have ‘revisited’ the original project adding in exciting, new footage and re-invigorating the original score with new works to create an updated version of The Reef for 2016.

This performance is an illuminating and thrilling celebration of surfing, the ocean, landscape, film and music melded together.

Award-winning cinematographer and director Tim Bonython presents 30 minutes of previously unseen surf footage from 7.30-8pm.
