Interplay – Sydney Dance Company

published on 27 March 2014


Sydney Dance Company returns to Canberra with a thrilling triple bill direct from its premiere season in Sydney.

Bonachela, Godani and Obarzanek: three choreographers that have each carved their own, unique paths through the world of contemporary dance, ushing at the possibilities of movement with acclaimed, innovative works. Now, for the first time ever, they share the one canvas.

Rafael Bonachela, Sydney Dance Company’s award-winning artistic director, begins the night with the world premiere of his latest work, set to a score of Bach’s majestic Violin Partita No.2 in D Minor. Italian choreographer Jacopo Godani revisits his critically acclaimed 2011 composition Raw Models – a sinuous, sexy testament to the infinite malleability of the human body. Finally, former Chunky Move director Gideon Obarzanek creates a work for the entire company, showcasing once again his genius for composing movement pieces on a grand scale.

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: sometimes the things that set us apart are the things that bind us closest together.
