Final Week for Interplay in Sydney. Canberra and Melbourne Next!
Sydney Dance Company’s Interplay Sydney season must close this Saturday 5 April. With only 5 Sydney performances to go, make sure you get in quick to secure your seats.
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.
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 opened with the world premiere of Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director, Rafael Bonchela’s latest work, ‘2 in D Minor’ set to the majestic sounds of one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s renowned Partitas for solo violin. Inspired by musical discoveries made during his 2012 collaboration on Project Rameau, this new piece has been two years in the making.
In 2011 SDC invited esteemed Frankfurt based Italian dancer/choreographer Jacopo Godani to create a new work as part of their season Shared Frequencies. The Company is thrilled to bring this incredible artist back to Austrlaia to restage his acclaimed production of the ‘slee 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 performance of the evening, former SDC Company dancer, Gideon Obarzanek, who went on to found and direct contemporary dance company Chunky Move, returns to his beginnings, presenting a new work commissioned as part of SDC’s 45th Anniversary celebrations. Created in collaboration with dramaturg David Woods, L’Chaim! (which translates from Hebrew and Yiddish to ‘To Life!’) is a playful and epic piece showcasing his genius for choreographing movement on a grand scale.
Drawing together three distinct visions for dance, Interplay repesnts a triple bill of breathtaking ambition!
Next week (11 – 12 April) the Company heads to Canberra Theatre Centre to share this electrifying production with our Canberra friends and later in the month we will make their debut at Southbank Theatre in Melbourne.
