Following the critically acclaimed world premiere of Impermanence in Sydney in 2021, the Sydney Dance Company will present the visceral and thrilling work of Rafael Bonachela at the Dubbo Regional Theater on Saturday July 9 at 8pm.
Impermanence sees Bonachela team up with contemporary composer Bryce Dessner (founding member of iconic American rock band The National), who has composed a new score recording with the famous Australian string quartet.
Dessner’s emotionally powerful score was co-commissioned by the Sydney Dance Company and the Australian String Quartet, who last worked together on Bonachela’s Frame of Mind which toured Dubbo in 2018 with music also composed by Desner.
On Dessner and Impermanence, Bonachela said, “It was so wonderful to work with Bryce Dessner on this exciting new piece. It was originally inspired by the impact of the Notre Dame fire and the 2019 Australian bushfires, exploring the transience and fragility of existence. After what the world has been through with the pandemic, her return is even more poignant. »
“The Sydney Dance Company is one of Australia’s leading contemporary dance ensembles under the artistic direction of Rafael Bonachela. Our region is fortunate to be part of their national tour which offers unique opportunities for community involvement.
“The offer includes teaching workshops for dance teachers and regular schools, dance workshops for local dance students aged 10 and over and a preview of the company’s dance course and rehearsal technique on stage the day of the show. These additional levels of engagement are important to getting to know Sydney Dance Company, as they enhance the theater experience while supporting professional development in our region,” said Dubbo Regional Theater and Convention Center Director Linda Christof.
