Sydney Dance Company

A double-bill of Rafael Bonachela’s critically acclaimed Impermanence and Antony Hamilton’s Helpmann Award-winning Forever & Ever by Sydney Dance Company is set to grace the stage of Sydney Coliseum Theatre at West HQ later this year as part of a national tour.

Impermanence by Pedro Greig

In its first ever performance at the 2000 seat Sydney Coliseum Theatre, Sydney Dance Company will present a powerful and mesmerising contemporary dance performance of two smash hit works. Brimming with physicality, Sydney Dance Company’s double-bill marries world-class contemporary dance with boundary-breaking experimentation.

Brought to life by Sydney Dance Company’s superb ensemble, Impermanence and Forever & Ever is a sensorial delight featuring immersive installations, dazzling costumes and transformative musical scores by two rock star composers. Exploring themes of ephemerality, order, chaos, popular culture and human behaviour, this is an unmissable creative union which is both forceful and electrifying.

Impermanence sees Rafael Bonachela join forces with contemporary composer Bryce Dessner (of iconic American rock band The National), who has composed an award-winning score to be performed live onstage by the renowned Australian String Quartet.

Forever and Ever  

Choreography by Antony Hamilton  

Set to a sonically stimulating score by The Presets’ Julian Hamilton, the reprise of Antony Hamilton’s Helpmann award-winning work Forever & Ever fuses a killer mix of dance, techno, high fashion and vivid lighting to hypnotic effect. Exploring ideas of order, chaos, popular culture and human behaviour, this boundary-pushing work is a bold and thrilling theatrical experience that is not to be missed.

★★★★ “It’s an inventive and adventurous ride.” – Time Out 


Choreography by Rafael Bonachela 

A visceral and deeply moving exploration of the juxtaposition of beauty and devastation, this full-length work features a score full of emotional power from Grammy Award-winning composer Bryce Dessner of The National performed live on stage by the Australian String Quartet.

“… arguably the best single piece created by and for an Australian dance company for many years.” – Adelaide Advertiser
