Performance history

Rafael Bonachela's

2 One Another

Lima, Peru

From the internationally acclaimed Sydney Dance Company comes an exuberant, high-octane fusion of dance, language, sound and light from Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela.

With their work, 2 One Another, Sydney Dance Company weaves a vivid, exultant and sensual study of human interaction – charting the myriad actions and reactions, gestures and relationships, connections and disconnections that make up a life.

Set against a pulsing, pixelated backdrop the piece thrums with a driving, baroque-meets-electronica soundtrack, penned by the able hand of composer Nick Wales. Shot through with the exquisite poetry fragments of Samuel Webster, this is dance at its most engaging and multi-dimensional.

A startling, high-octane shot across the bows of contemporary dance, 2 One Another is an exuberant celebration of the power of movement from a choreographer and a company at the height of their powers.

Sydney Dance Company’s tour to Peru coincides with the celebration of 50 years of diplomatic relations between Australia and Peru.

“Bonachela’s latest work for the Sydney Dance Company is his best since he became artistic director. This time he has harnessed the strength and skills of the dancers in a thrillingly fluent piece that maintains its vibrancy over its hour-long journey.” – Sydney Morning Herald

“Bonachela’s complex and ever-changing movement vocabulary, combined with Sydney Dance Company’s gorgeous ensemble, equals a winning formula… The non-stop choreography bursts with invention.” – Herald Sun

“The kind of musical, dynamically diverse and physically challenging work dancers long to perform… this show is not to be missed.” – The Age
