Sydney Dance Company presents a powerful triple bill from three remarkable choreographic talents, Rafael Bonachela, Jacopo Godani and Gabrielle Nankivell. Each has carved their own unique style, pushing at the possibilities of movement with acclaimed, innovative pieces. Now, for the first time, these three incredible pieces will share the one stage.
Rafael Bonachela’s emotionally charged and award-winning Frame of Mind features a dramatic contemporary-classical soundtrack by Bryce Dessner (from American hit rock band The National), recorded by internationally renowned Kronos Quartet.
Italian choreographer Jacopo Godani’s critically acclaimed Raw Models is a sinuous, sexy testament to the infinite malleability of the human body.
While Gabrielle Nankivell’s Wildebeest is a high-energy tour de force of the dancers’ physicality.
‘Raw Models is a full and accomplished piece of contemporary art in which the dancers come into their own; their faces gleam with animal-like hunger and intensity as their leotard-wrapped bodies erupt in movement – large, grotesque and divine.’ Dance Australia
Sydney Dance Company’s tour to New York and the East-Coast of the United States of America is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian Cultural Diplomacy Grant Program of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
'Nankivell sees beauty and wonder in the primitive, animalistic self, even with danger as a constant companion. Every molecule of the body is vibrantly alert.’The Australian onWildebeest
