LES ILLUMINATIONS, SIMPLE SYMPHONY & VARIATION 10 BY RAFAEL BONACHELA

Across a trio of breathtaking dance pieces, Triptych offers a radiant marriage of movement and music as we join ACO2 and legendary songstress Katie Noonan live on stage. Born from the passionate choreography of Rafael Bonachela, Triptych brings together three captivating visions of dance. A never-before-seen work from Bonachela, Variation 10, joins a repeat performance of his Les Illuminations – a deeply romantic, two-part tribute to the shimmering compositions of Benjamin Britten, returning after a sold-out 2013 season at Sydney Opera House.

Showcasing dramatic costumes by Helpmann Award-winning Toni MaticevskiTriptych promises an unforgettable evening of dance and music.

Duration: 106 minutes including a 20 minute interval

‘Les Illuminations is so hot it sizzles’ – Daily Telegraph

‘Bonachela’s choreography is brilliant and the dancers are extraordinary while Katie Noonan is simply spellbinding.’ – Daily Telegraph

‘Utterly beguiling … some of the finest, most inventive evenings of dance you are likely to see on the world stage.’ – Limelight Magazine

‘The season was all too brief and a wider audience deserves to see a work that makes such a bold theatrical statement.’ – SX

‘an intriguing show and well worth seeing.’ – Dance Australia

‘Bonachela has found heart, truth and spirit in bringing elements of literature, music and dance together. It’s inspired and vigorous and these qualities seem to have found contagion in all involved, on stage and off.’ – Crikey

‘The dancers are absolutely superb; there is no question of their technical skill, style or strength. And the passion, in all senses of the word, and intimacy between them is palpable.’ – XS Entertain

‘If it does return to a venue near you, and I feel sure it will, book early for Les Illuminations. It will give you plenty to talk about.’ – XS Entertain
