BonachelaGodani and Obarzanek: three choreographers that have each carved their own, unique paths through the world of contemporary dance, pushing at the possibilities of movement with acclaimed, innovative works. Now, for the first time ever, these dance prodigies share the one canvas.

Rafael Bonachela, Sydney Dance Company’s award-winning Artistic Director, begins the program with the world premiere of his latest work 2 in D Minor, a drastic and vivid reimagining of Bach’s majestic Violin Partita No. 2 in D Minor. Italian choreographer Jacopo Godani revisits his critically acclaimed 2011 composition, Raw Models – a sinuous, sexy testament to the infinite malleability of the human body. Finally, former Chunky Move director and dancer with Sydney Dance Company, Gideon Obarzanek returns with L’Chaim! (‘to life’ in Hebrew and Yiddish), an uplifting piece featuring the entire company.

Drawing together three distinct visions for dance, Interplay presents a triple bill of breathtaking ambition – a glorious salute to the state of contemporary dance, and an exhilarating reminder: that sometimes the things that set us apart are the things that bind us closest together.
