Sydney Dance Company: Bonachela / Nankivell / Lane

Tuesday 26 March 2019 to Saturday 13 April 2019

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 a season premiering in Sydney before touring nationally, audiences will see three thrilling works share the one stage for the first time.

In the world 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. While 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 invites you to help celebrate its 50th year through these three extraordinary works that will take you on one unforgettable journey.

“★★★★ Well worth seeing… Extraordinary… powerful… memorable” – Sydney Morning Herald (WOOF in 2017)
