The Land of Yes & The Land of No

Rafel Bonachela

CIVIC THEATRE, NEWCASTLE

Beautifully wrought from the world of signs and symbols in our everyday lives, Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela’s celebrated production had its Australian premiere in 2011 and in 2012 comes to the Civic Theatre.

Every exquisite movement picks out the irresistible intensity of ezio Bosso’s score, with the Company’s magnificent dancers performing on a set of fluoro tubes and rich, constantly changing colours.

Designed by a crack British team of Alan Macdonald (production), Guy Hoare (lighting) and Theo Clinkard (costumes), this is a production which promises all the physical precision and enthralling dance that have dazzled the Company’s audiences from Shanghai to venice. Don’t miss it!

approximate running time 70min with no interval.

“Bonachela recasts the experience of direction and control in a fascinating variety of modes, each given dramatic colour by Ezio Bosso’s score.”

– The Guardian

“Extraordinarily beatiful” – The Daily Telegraph
