Sydney Dance Company Brings The Power Of Dance And Music
Friday, 04 Jun 2021Experience a visceral and thrilling exploration of the juxtaposition of beauty and devastation, with Sydney Dance Company’s full-length work, Impermanence, Rafael Bonachela’s newest creation.
Contemporary composer, Bryce Dessner has composed a new score full of emotional power.
Best known as a founder of American rock band The National and for his film scores for The Revenant and The Two Popes, Dessner was initially inspired by the tragedy of the Australian bush fires and the Notre-Dame fire in Paris. With a score performed by the Australian String Quartet, and the full might of Sydney Dance Company’s ensemble, this is an epic, driven performance that packs an emotional punch.
When COVID-19 struck in March 2020, Impermanence was only four days from its world premiere and opening night. After a tumultuous year, Sydney Dance Company bring it to the stage for the first time in 2021, now with added poignancy. Experience the power of dance and music, laden with meaning, fleeting and vulnerable.
Acting Manager of Griffith Regional Theatre, Margaret Andreazza said, “After five years with their tour of CounterMove, it’s great to welcome back Australia's leading contemporary dance company to Griffith again. We’re all looking forward to viewing the renowned skills and fluid movement of Sydney Dance Company.”
Join Sydney Dance Company in their return to the stage. From devastation find energy, urgency, radiance and hope.
“Contemporary dance is very interpretive so everyone will have a different experience. Bonachela’s work, is extremely expressive. Theatre members can bring a friend for free to this show, so it is a great opportunity to introduce someone to contemporary dance or a real treat for any admirer of the genre,” said Mrs Andreazza.
The Theatre’s 2021 Season partner Limone Dining is offering a limited number of exclusive pre-show dinner packages for Sydney Dance Company’s Impermanence.
