Sydney Dance Company launch NSW Festival of Place with series of short films (Dance Locale)

Sydney Dance Company has launched their involvement in the inaugural NSW Festival of Place, a year-long Festival celebrating NSW’s public spaces initiated as a part of the State Government’s COVID Safe Summer program.

As a part of NSW Festival of Place, Dance Locale is a series of films by filmmaker Pedro Greig starring Sydney Dance Company dancers, and featuring stunning choreography from Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director, Rafael Bonachela, inspired by the unique public spaces across NSW. The films are publicly viewable for free online on Sydney Dance Company’s websiteYouTube and the DPIE (Department of Planning, Industry and Environment) website.


The company’s involvement in the Festival will culminate in I Want To Dance With Somebody, a unique public participatory event, offering the public the opportunity to learn choreography from Sydney Dance Company and participate in a major virtual dance performance in January 2021.
