This double bill features the combined creative talents of composers and choreographers making for an evening of dance that will energise and inspire you.
Ezio Bosso, for the first time, plays his composition live to accompany Bonachela’s stunning choreography. Jacopo Godani continues the theme of shared creations with German music duo 48 Nord to create a powerful new piece.

The Land of Yes and The Land of No
Australian premiere season
By Rafael Bonachela
Rafael Bonachela’s critically acclaimed full-length work, The Land of Yes and The Land of No has delighted audiences in Europe and now it’s our turn. Set to an emotionally evocative score by Ezio Bosso, this work is Bonachela’s deepest exploration into the human psyche, the power of imagination and the body’s ability to give physical shape to memory, experience and emotion.
‘the best work [of Bonachela’s] career…’ The Guardian, London
‘The Land of Yes and the Land of No makes for exhilarating viewing’ The Guardian
Season runs 18-29 October 2011
