A note from Rafael in Switzerland


2 May 2016

“Nothing makes me happier than seeing Sydney Dance Company perform to full houses.

Our visit to Switzerland for Steps Dance Festival, the country’s largest contemporary dance biennial has included performances in seven towns across three weeks. We’ve performed our triple bill, Interplay, to auditoriums filled with enthusiastic audiences. The beautiful dancers of the Company along with Veronique Serret (solo violin) and Gideon Obarzanek (guest performer and choreographer) have received standing ovations and vociferous accolades throughout the tour.

Eleven Companies from every corner of the globe have travelled around the country and performed on forty different Festival stages. From time to time we cross each other’s paths in hotel lobbies and Festival events and even have travelled to nearby cities to enjoy each other’s performances. It’s been a busy schedule, always on the go between hotels, theatres, buses and trains – but it’s been a joyful toil to travel through the picture perfect countryside, where different languages are spoken from city to city and arrive in each stop to hear at curtain call time, whether in German, French or Italian, it’s a resounding ‘bravo’ for Sydney Dance Company.”

The Company are now on their way to Sao Paulo, Brazil and then Santiago, Chile before heading home to prepare for our beloved regional tour of Australia, hopefully we’ll see you along the way!
