CounterMove: Sydney Dance Company

part of Stage

Explore luminescence and life in a double bill that will enchant, compel and amuse with exhilarating movement by some of Australia’s finest dancers.

From one of the world’s most exciting choreographers comes Cacti, a laugh-out-loud funny and affectionate tribute and parody of modern art. Alexander Ekman’s witty and energetic piece, performed by the full Company and a string quartet, will take you in with a knowing wink, then surprise you with its bracing physicality.

Rafael Bonachela’s world premiere, Lux Tenebris, provides the perfect contrast: light and darkness emerging from a dusky sonic landscape by composer Nick Wales (long-term collaborator of Sarah Blasko). Movement follows deep, unexpected, visceral beats and sharp, sudden twists to discover a dark place where there is space for beauty and light. Bonachela’s work, as always, is deeply emotional.

CounterMove will intrigue, move and entertain you. Don’t miss out.
