Sydney Dance company


In 2009, Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela’s sensuous aesthetic initiated a new chapter in the annals of the legendary Sydney Dance Company.

Bonachela is a self-proclaimed “movement junkie”: his choreography is packed with intricate, amazing pattern-play; the dancers ignite the stage with “creative precision and exhilarating energy.” Among the countless accolades to date, one critic recently wrote, “Sydney Dance Company is a versatile and beautifully-schooled group of performers with work that is ... emotionally driven and passionately and powerfully danced. An outstanding evening.” Sydney Dance Company is indisputably Australia’s leading contemporary dance group, touring internationally with an array of Bonachela’s works and collaborating with other prominent choreographers including Gideon Obarzanek, Jacopo Godani and Alexander Ekman.
