Featuring the Australian String Quartet. Presented by Sydney Dance Company.

In 2020, Sydney Dance Company will explode the everyday and take you into the sublime. Bonachela / Forsythe collects three works from across the spectrum of physicality. Impermanence sees Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela join forces with Bryce Dessner of iconic American rock band The National to create a world premiere work with a specially created score, performed live on stage by the Australian String Quartet. William Forsythe’s N.N.N.N is an Australian premiere from the godfather of contemporary dance: witty, riveting and “astonishingly intense” (New York Times). Completing the bill is the multi award-winning E2 7SD, the virtuosic duet that launched Rafael Bonachela’s choreographic career.

We are excited to be performing this concert with guest cellist Rachael Tobin, while Sharon Grigoryan is on leave.

The Sydney and Melbourne performances of Impermanence are presented in association with Australian String Quartet. Bryce Dessner’s music composition Impermanence is commissioned by the Australian String Quartet and Sydney Dance Company. This commission has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
