★★★★ “Always worth seeing, this year is filled with surprises… a world of the imagination.”The Sydney Morning Herald

“Always a highlight of the city’s art calendar for a few reasons: you get to see the company’s astonishing dancers stretched in new and unexpected directions under choreographers who are often at the start of their creative journeys and willing to take an experimental leap.” – Time Out Sydney

“And that’s what has always driven New Breed and continues to do so in its sixth year: the ingenuity of dance-makers wanting to push boundaries and find new modes. Even when things don’t gel perfectly, it’s hugely exciting to watch an idea come to fruition in this brilliant initiative.”Time Out Sydney

“Katina Olsen’s ‘Mother’s Cry’, a work driven by sensual feminine power and the highlight of the program… The world Olsen establishes is one entirely absent of the male gaze, and the sensuality of the movement is imbued with power and agency.” – Time Out Sydney

“Holly Doyle’s sweet, sad, funny, goofy, utterly captivating ‘Out, Damned Spot!’ is exactly why Sydney Dance Company’s New Breed exists and why it works… a terrific night.”The Australian

Close-up, full-throttle energy…Sydney Dance Company’s end-of-year New Breed program has become an essential part of the festive season for dance fans” – Elissa Blake, The Audrey Journal

“Indigenous choreographer Katina Olsen’s work, ‘Mother’s Cry’, is electrifying throughout.”Elissa Blake, The Audrey Journal

★★★★ The current season of Sydney Dance Company’s New Breed is a must-see that features four exciting and challenging works.”ArtsHub
