Choreographed by: Rafael Bonachela
Music Composed by: Bryce Dessner
Music Performed by: Australian String Quartet
Returning to the stage for a national Australian tour after a sell-out Sydney world-premiere season (Feb 21) and an Adelaide Festival smash hit run (March 21), Rafael Bonachela’s Impermanence is “arguably the single best piece created by and for an Australian dance company for many years” (Adelaide Advertiser).
A visceral and thrilling exploration of the juxtaposition of beauty and devastation, this full-length work features a new score full of emotional power from Grammy Award-winning composer Bryce Dessner.
Best known as a founder of American rock band The National and for his film scores for The Revenant and The Two Popes, Dessner was initially inspired by the tragedy of the Australian bush fires and the Notre-Dame fire in Paris. Sydney Dance Company’s “awe-inspiring” (In Daily) ensemble is joined live on stage by the Australian String Quartet. This is epic, driven performance that packs an emotional punch.
Experience the power of dance and music performed (live) together, laden with meaning, fleeting and vulnerable and from devastation, find energy, urgency, radiance and hope.
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.
Presented by Rockhampton Regional Council. Part of the 2022 See It Live Theatre Season.
