Rafael Bonachela

2 One Another

Pilbeam Theatre, Rockhampton, QLD

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.
