Sydney Dance Company is thrilled to announce its first European co-production, in partnership with the acclaimed Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company.
Rafael Bonachela’s Lux Tenebris will premiere in Sydney on February 29 2016, and will tour nationally to 19 venues across six states and territories, as part of Sydney Dance Company’s double-bill program CounterMove.
The work will subsequently be set on the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company, ahead of a premiere European season in September.
“I’m really excited to be collaborating with such an amazing company on the creation of this new work, and to present a European premiere in September. This new partnership represents a momentous achievement in our international programming activity, and a prized opportunity for showcasing Sydney Dance Company as a creative force on the world stage.”
Rafael Bonachela (Artistic Director of Sydney Dance Company)
“I would like to express my pride about this future collaboration between the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company and Sydney Dance Company in 2016. It represents a bridge of art communication, not only with another country but also with another continent.”
Jacopo Godani (Artistic Director of Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company)
