7 Sep — 11 Sep 2021
Roslyn Packer Theatre
Sydney Dance Company
Rafael Bonachela’s ab [intra], acclaimed as “contemporary dance at its most evocative and beautiful” (Time Out ★★★★) returns for a very special encore season following a sell-out European tour in 2019.
ab [intra], meaning ‘from within’ in Latin is “an exploration of our primal instincts, our impulses and our visceral responses”(Rafael Bonachela).
From tenderness to turmoil, ab [intra] is a journey of intense human existence that will command your attention
The music fuses lush cello with ambient electronica and the exquisite dancers occupy a visually arresting ethereal world. This is a ferociously physical and heartfelt piece which will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.
ab [intra] “has to be seen to be believed” (The Sydney Morning Herald ★★★★). Don’t miss this electrifying journey showcasing Australia’s best contemporary dancers.
