SYDNEY DANCE COMPANY – IMPERMANENCE
Experience the power of dance and music performed live together when Sydney Dance Company returns to Darwin.
A visceral and thrilling exploration of the juxtaposition of beauty and devastation, Sydney Dance Company’s full-length work, Impermanence is Rafael Bonachela’s newest creation.
Contemporary composer Bryce Dessner, best known as a founder of American rock band The National and for his film scores for The Revenant and The Two Popes, has created a powerful new score. Initially inspired by the 2019 Australian bush fires and Notre Dame fire, both his score and Bonachela’s choreography were extended following 2020’s unexpected events, an exquisite response to the uncertainties of existence.
Bonachela’s choreography is “arguably the single best piece created by and for an Australian dance company for many years” (Adelaide Advertiser). Contemporary movement is performed by the 17 members of Sydney Dance Company with impressive athleticism and fierce grace. The dancers are joined by the Australian String Quartet who perform live onstage in this epic performance that packs an emotional punch.
