SDC’s Central Australia Tour next month
Sydney Dance Company is set to tour Central Australia in May 2013, bringing Rafael Bonachela’s acclaimed production of 2 One Another to Adelaide, Alice Springs and Darwin, in advance of the production touring overseas.
Sydney Dance Company is excited to continue it’s long-held commitment to touring all corners of Australia, with a series of performances in three key central Australian locations.
The company will perform five shows at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Adelaide from May 8th to the 11th, and one show at Araluen Arts Centre in Alice Springs on May 15th and Darwin Entertainment Centre on May 18th.
Critically-acclaimed 2 One Another is an exultant and sensual study of human interaction and relationships, exploring the couple (2), the individual (One) and the group (Another). Beautiful, dynamic and highly physical, 2 One Another is performed by 16 of the best contemporary dancers in Australia, including 2012 Helpmann Award-winner Charmene Yap, named the Best Female Dancer in a Dance/Theatre Production.
2 One Another is the result of an exciting collaboration between Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director and choreographer Rafael Bonachela, set and costume designer Tony Assness, and composer/music director Nick Wales. It also features poetry by Samuel Webster.
The performance is set against a stunning digital backdrop of motion design and animation and features an exceptional soundtrack – seamlessly embracing Baroque to electronica – shot through with poetry fragments created and utilised during the development of the work.
2 One Another premiered in Sydney in March 2012 to rave reviews, and toured to Melbourne in November. The show has just received four Green Room Award nominations. For more information on the work, visit www.sydneydancecompany.com.
