Sydney Dance Company opens 2016 season with CounterMove
Plus … WIN A TRIP TO GERMANY
Sydney Dance Company bursts into 2016 with a stunning double-bill program – CounterMove – juxtaposing works from two renowned contemporary dance visionaries – multi-award winning Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman, and Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director, Rafael Bonachela.
Australia’s leading contemporary dance company brings together movement, music, dramatics, philosophy and comedy, in an intoxicating double bill program presented by 16 of Australia’s finest dancers at the top of their game. CounterMove will enchant, compel and amuse.
Having left a trail of laughter in its wake and a legacy of rapturous reviews in 2013, Alexander Ekman’s Cacti returns offering an affectionate tribute and parody of modern art. Rafael Bonachela’s world premiere, Lux Tenebris, provides the perfect contrast: light and darkness emerging from a dusky sonic landscape by composer Nick Wales.
Ticket buyers could also WIN a Trip for Two to Germany to see the international premiere of Lux Tenebris performed by the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company on 8 September 2016.
CounterMove opens at Sydney’s Roslyn Packer Theatre Walsh Bay on February 26, ahead of seasons at Canberra Theatre Centre, opening May 19, and Southbank Theatre, Melbourne, opening May 25. Book now for all venues at sydneydancecompany.com/productions/countermove.
The show will also tour to regional New South Wales, regional Queensland, Darwin and regional Western Australia, from June 17 to August 27. See the full list of venues at sydneydancecompany.com/tours.
