Roslyn Packer Theatre, Sydney
This captivating double bill features Rafael Bonachela’s award-winning Frame of Mind and Antony Hamilton’s brand new work Forever & Ever.
Frame of Mind explores the volatility of the human psyche. Winner of four Helpmann Awards, this emotionally charged work is set to a dramatic contemporary-classical soundtrack by Bryce Dessner from The National, recorded by San Francisco’s renowned Kronos Quartet and features a stunning set by Ralph Myers.
Forever & Ever is a world premiere from internationally acclaimed choreographer Antony Hamilton. Lose yourself to the hypnotic pulse of machine influenced movement and vivid imagination, driven by an original score by Julian Hamilton of The Presets.
This double bill is an enthralling display of contemporary dance at its very best.
