“Some of the finest, most inventive evenings of dance you are likely to see.” Limelight Magazine
Sydney Dance Company’s 2015 season bursts into life with a powerful double bill – a showcase of deeply personal works from two acclaimed choreographic talents: living legend William Forsythe and Sydney Dance Company’s own Artistic Director, Rafael Bonachela.
Appearing for its Australian premiere, Quintett is Forsythe’s tour de force and is a rarely seen piece that is delicate, tender and unsparing in its intensity. It’s recognised as his most poignant masterpiece. A beautiful tribute and glorious celebration of movement, light and life, Quintett showcases Forsythe’s arched and intricate choreography at its most athletic and arresting.
Bonachela’s brand new piece Frame of Mind brings a very different perspective to these eternal themes, set to a soundtrack of original compositions by Bryce Dessner (guitarist from The National) in a recording by the Kronos Quartet. Directing the full power of the talented Sydney Dance Company ensemble, Bonachela delivers a performance of rare force and intensity.
Don’t miss this gripping evening of dance – a hymn to the joy and pain of life and a salute to the redemptive power of motion.
