Sydney Dance Company 45th anniversary national tour comes to Geraldton

image1 Sydney Dance Company is thrilled to announce that as part of their 45th Anniversary Program they will be touring their internationally acclaimed production, 2 One Another, to cities and towns across Western Australia.

This stunning show, choreographed by Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela, has already enraptured audiences across the globe, from the USA to Russia as part of an extensive eight week international tour taking in 16 cities in three continents at the end of 2013.

At home in Australia the work has been recognised with multiple awards including Most Outstanding Choreography, Most Outstanding Performance by a Company and Most Outstanding Female Dancer (Australian Dance Awards 2013), Best Ensemble and Best Female Dancer (Green Room Awards 2012) and Best Female Dancer (Helpmann Awards 2012).

Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela says,  “I’m really excited to be sharing 2 One Another with our friends in Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales this year, as part of our 45th Anniversary program.”

“Sydney Dance Company prides itself on presenting the same exceptionally high quality productions to our audiences in regional Australia as we do to our capital city and international audiences, and I believe that 2 One Another is such beautiful show that so many people will enjoy.”

Beautiful, dynamic and highly physical, 2 One Another is performed by 16 of the best contemporary dancers in Australia, including multi-award winning Charmene Yap (2013 Best Female Dancer, Australian Dance Awards; 2012 Best Female Dancer in a Dance/Theatre Production, Helpmann Awards.)

The show 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, with poetry by Samuel Webster.

An exultant and sensual study of human interaction and relationships, 2 One Another explores the couple (2), the individual (One), and the group (Another), in ‘A thrillingly fluent piece that maintains its vibrancy over its hour-long journey” (Sydney Morning Herald).

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, and has since toured to Melbourne, Adelaide, Alice Springs and Darwin, and to nine cities across North America, South America and Russia.

Sydney Dance Company’s 45th Anniversary National Tour kicks off at her Majesty’s Theatre in Perth on June 18, before travelling to regional Western Australia, regional Queensland and regional New South Wales.

It will be at Queen's Park Theatre in Geraldton on July 5th. Click here for more information.
