Performance history

The Land of Yes & The Land of No

Rafael Bonachela


Exquisite movement and irresistable intensity…

Beautifully wrought from the world of signs and symbols in our everyday lives, artistic director Rafael Bonachela’s production, The Land of Yes & The Land of No, premiered at the Ludwigsburg Festival, Germany in 2009 and has toured the world since then, garnering critical and audience acclaim.

Instantly recognised by audiences and critics as “a giant leap… imaginatively, musically and choreographically”, Canberra audiences now get to see this sensuous award-winning work.

Every exquisite movement leaps out with the irresistible intensity of Ezio Bosso’s score, as the Company’s magnificent dancers perform on a set of neon tubes and rich, constantly changing colours.

Designed by leading British team Alan MacDonald (production)Guy Hoare (lighting) and Theo Clinkard (costumes), this is a production which delivers all the physical precision and enthralling dance that has dazzled the Company’s audiences from Shanghai to Venice.
