Sydney Dance Company’s 50th Anniversary bursts into life with a formidable triple bill from Rafael Bonachela, Gabrielle Nankivell and Melanie Lane, each having created a wildly inventive and spellbinding experience for the audience.
Be moved by a “dazzling technical display of flexibility” (★★★★, Sydney Morning Herald) in the world premiere of Rafael Bonachela’s Cinco. Watch “elastic dynamic dancing” (The Daily Telegraph) from our award-winning dancers, in delicate costumes by revered fashion designer Bianca Spender, set to Alberto Ginastera’s soaring String Quartet No.2.
Also a premiere, Gabrielle Nankivell’s Neon Aether is a theatrical adventure into the infinite unknown. Inspired by science fiction and outer space, audiences will be transported into a vivid, ethereal world beyond the clouds.
Completing the triple bill is Melanie Lane’s electrifying and critically acclaimed WOOF. To a hypnotic electronic score by UK musician Clark, WOOF imagines a futuristic, apocalyptic fantasy with masterful choreography “like nothing… seen in dance before” (★★★★ ½, Audrey Journal).
Celebrate our 50th year through these three extraordinary works that will take you on one unforgettable journey.
★★★★ “Virtuoso display thrills with speed and stillness” – Sydney Morning Herald
★★★★ “Elastic dynamic dancing... a thrilling dance work flush with wit and invention" – The Daily Telegraph
★★★★ “The dancing is as dazzling as ever” – Limelight
“A triple treat… three works that foreground the dancers” – The Australian
