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.
