Be captured by the extraordinary lunar mystery Orb – a world premiere featuring the latest creation from Sydney Dance Company’s Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela, and the Company's first ever collaboration with a Taiwanese choreographer, Cheng Tsung–lung.
Bonachela's Ocho, meaning eight in Spanish, marks his eighth year with the Company and features eight virtuosic dancers. Fusing a hypnotic electronic score by Nick Wales with dreamlike architecture, Ocho explores the infinite connections that exist between us all.
Full Moon by Cheng Tsung-lung, the Artistic Director of Taiwan's phenomenal Cloud Gate 2 completes the double bill. This striking new piece harnesses the power of the moon and the mythology and poetry of mankind to thrill the audience.
Living in our modern world, the vibrant city lights have endlessly fascinated me and occupied the interspaces of my sight and feelings at night. On the contrary, the moon, nature’s symbolic beauty of night, shines light into my eyes and helps me uncover the mysteries of the unconscious world which I do not know, yet I feel exist. Cheng Tsung-lung
