Sydney Dance Company at Autostadt, Germany for Movimentos Festival


Each year, more people experience Sydney Dance Company outside Sydney than in it. Over the last five years, 52% of our performances were outside Sydney and this year alone, almost 80% of the venues we will perform in in Australia are outside capital cities. Our full time ensemble is regularly performs in Australian capital cities, regional centres and internationally and we are passionate about showing our work as widely as possible.

Our regular international tours give us the opportunity to share Australian contemporary dance with audiences all over the world. Over the last two years we have performed in Europe, Hong Kong, New Zealand and South America.  We are incredibly proud that we have shared 17 works by 8 different choreographers outside Australia in the last five years and that we have become one of the most sought after contemporary dance companies in the world.
