Sydney Dance Company explodes onto stage in Rafael Bonachela’s latest creation momenta. From the most tender exchanges to an intense physical storm, witness an extraordinary force of movement, striking individuality and powerful unity, escalating to a joyous release. 

The connection is instinctive. The moment is transformational. 

momenta takes audiences on a journey into the poetry and physicality of human bonds. This mesmerising work presents a kaleidoscope of energy, capturing moments where individual trajectories collide and intertwine. 

Rich with rhythmical and spatial patterning, Sydney Dance Company dancers transcend physical limitations; they explore the full range of their bodies with grace, power and vulnerability. Each moment resonates through space, drawing the audience into a world of raw emotion. 

Through the captivating interplay of Bonachela’s signature choreographic style, Nick Wales’ evocative soundscapes, Elizabeth Gadsby’s arresting set design and Damien Cooper’s striking lighting, momenta gathers the hurtling vectors of our lives into confluence and connection. For audiences and dancers alike, it is an invitation to rejoice in the beauty and fragility of our shared humanity.
