THREE DANCE PRODIGIES, ONE STAND OUT SEASON
Rafael Bonachela, Jacopo Godani, Gideon Obarzanek
Sydney, March 15 to April 5
Canberra, April 10 to 12
Melbourne, April 30 to May 10
Sydney Dance Company presents works from three prodigiously talented internationally acclaimed choreographers, bringing these super-talents together for an un-missable tour de force triple bill contemporary dance season.
Interplay opens in Sydney on March 15 until April 5, followed by performances in Canberra April 10 to 12, and Melbourne April 30 to May 10.
This is a not to be missed opportunity to experience the majesty of Australia’s finest contemporary dancers, directed by three of the most visionary dance voices of our generation.
Interplay opens with the world premiere of Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director, Rafael Bonchela’s latest work, set to the stunning sounds of Bach’s majestic Violin Partita No. 2 in D Minor. Inspired by musical discoveries made during his 2012 collaboration of Project Rameau, Bonachela’s new piece has been two years in the making, and sees his dancers joined on stage by acclaimed violinist Veronique Serret.
In 2011 Sydney Dance Company invited esteemed Frankfurt based Italian dancer choreographer Jacopo Godani to create a new work as part of their season of Shared Frequencies. The Company is thrilled to bring this incredible artist back to Australia to re-stage his acclaimed production of the ‘sleek and super sexy’ (The Australian) Raw Models, for Sydney audiences and introduce the show to Canberra and Melbourne for the first time.
For the finale of the evening, former Sydney Dance Company dancer, Gideon Obarzanek – who went on to found and direct contemporary dance company Chunky Move – presents his first work for Sydney Dance Company. This playful and epic piece showcases once again Obarzanek’s genius for choreographing movement on a grand scale. Working with dramaturg David Woods, he has created a piece for the full Sydney Dance Company ensemble, and an actor.
Drawing together three distinct visions for dance, Interplay presents a triple bill of breathtaking ambition – a glorious salute to the state of contemporary dance, and an exhilarating reminder that sometimes the things that set us apart are the things that bind us closest together.
