Sydney Dance Company’s 50th anniversary bursts into life with a formidable triple bill from Rafael Bonachela, Gabrielle Nankivell and Melanie Lane. Each has carved out their own unique style, pushing at the possibilities of movement.
In a season premiering in Sydney before touring nationally, audiences will see 3 thrilling works share the 1 stage for the first time.
In the world premiere of ‘Cinco’, Rafael Bonachela melds 5 virtuosic dancers, the award-winning lighting of Damien Cooper and the imagination and skill of fashion designer Bianca Spender with celebrated Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera’s achingly magnificent String Quartet #2.
Gabrielle Nankivell’s ‘Neon Aether’, also a premiere, transports both dancer and viewer to a vivid yet ethereal world beyond the clouds. While Melanie Lane’s 2017 ‘New Breed’ smash-hit ‘WOOF’, mashes classical, romantic and pop, driven by a dramatic musical score by acclaimed British electronic artist Clark.
Sydney Dance Company invites you to help celebrate its 50th year through these three extraordinary works that will take you on one unforgettable journey.

“★★★★ Well worth seeing… Extraordinary… powerful… memorable” – Sydney Morning Herald (WOOF in 2017).
“WOOF generates variations of collective actions that speak from matters of the heart. In an imagined physical future, stealing from classical dances, romantic paintings and pop culture, a re-invention of community takes place.” – Melanie Lane.
