2018 Taiwan Tour

3 - 4 November 2018

Sydney Dance Company returns to Taiwan in November to perform a dynamic double bill of Rafael Bonachela’s Lux Tenebris and Cheng Tsung-lung’s Full Moon.

Rafael Bonachela’s, Lux Tenebris explores light and darkness with fiercely physical movement and deep, electronic beats by composer Nick Wales.

Full Moon by Cheng Tsung-lung, the Artistic Director of Taiwan’s phenomenal Cloud Gate 2, completes the double bill. This striking piece harnesses the power of the moon and the mythology and poetry of humankind to thrill the audience.

The prestigious National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying) is the first national theatre located in southern Taiwan.

Full Moon

In Cheng Tsung-lung’s luminous Full Moon there is a profound sense of eternal motion, and not only because Cheng’s piece has thrilling eruptions of speed and full-bodied swirls. There is vivid life even in moments of what appears to be complete stillness.’ – The Australian

“It’s a splendid feast for eyes and ears with Fan Huai-chih’s gorgeously flowing costumes, Lim Giong’s gleaming commissioned score and Cooper’s magical lighting.” – The Australian

‘World class and deserves a place in permanent repertoire . . . an experience as enjoyable and enigmatic as the full moon.’ – Daily Telegraph
