Sydney Dance Company’s 50th Anniversary bursts into life with a formidable triple bill from Rafael Bonachela, Gabrielle Nankivell and Melanie Lane, each having carved their own unique style, pushing at the possibilities of movement.
In the Melbourne premiere of Cinco, Rafael Bonachela melds five virtuosic dancers, the award-winning lighting of Damien Cooper and the imagination and skill of fashion designer Bianca Spender with celebrated Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera’s achingly magnificent String Quartet #2.
Gabrielle Nankivell’s Neon Aether, also a premiere, transports both dancer and viewer to a vivid yet ethereal world beyond the clouds. Melanie Lane’s 2017 New Breed smash-hit WOOF mashes classical, romantic and pop, driven by a dramatic musical score by acclaimed British electronic artist Clark.
Sydney Dance Company’s secondary school matinee combines two of these works with pre-show talks and demonstrations, offering students insights into our Artists’ creative processes. Students will also engage in a post-show panel and Q&A with company dancers, creatives and arts business professionals, developing their understanding of various dance industry career pathways.
