2022

★★★★ “From sex and horror to romance and escapism: New Breed has it all” – Sydney Morning Herald

★★★★ “exhilarating contemporary dance” – Sydney Arts Guide

“I felt like I was watching the future of dance, nothing like I’d ever seen before” – Audience member

2021

“Choreography and storytelling are finely balanced to make an effective and moving work.” – Sydney Morning Herald (Given Unto Thee by Jasmin Sheppard)

“The moves are interesting, athletic and often original, enhanced by the amusing contrast of operatic arias to accompany them, no doubt another nudge at stereotypes.” – Sydney Morning Herald (Stereotipo Jacopo Grabar)

2020

“SDC’s dancers have re-emerged as technically stunning and emotionally compelling as ever, and this year’s New Breed presents fresh work from an importantly diverse range of Australian voices and backgrounds.” – Bachtrack

“Tackling vastly different subject matters, the works are immersive, full of risk and thoroughly enjoyable.” – Fjord Review

2019

★★★★ “Well worth seeing… Extraordinary… powerful… memorable – The Sydney Morning Herald

★★★★ “Full of a wonderful sense of adventure, but also with the choreographic and theatrical nous to pull off an eclectic and consistently satisfying night of dance.” – Timeout

★★★★ “The programs ends on a buzzing high; the world is on fire, but we still make art, and maybe that makes the art even more urgent, even more beautiful.” – Time Out

‘What a great night of dance: all of it brand spanking new, performed by some of the best movers on the planet and offered at $35 a ticket.’ – The Australian

★★★★ “Elastic dynamic dancing… a thrilling dance work flush with wit and invention” – Daily Review

As the staging tips us to the edge of a precipice we are treated to some riveting moments of almost magically achieved movement. It is extraordinarily emotional.” – Artshub
