Presented by Sydney Dance Company

A visceral and thrilling exploration of the juxtaposition of beauty and devastation, Sydney Dance Company’s full-length work, Impermanence is Rafael Bonachela’s newest creation.

Contemporary composer, Bryce Dessner has composed a new score full of emotional power. 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. Performed live on stage by the Australian String Quartet, and the full might of Sydney Dance Company’s ensemble, this is an epic, driven performance that packs an emotional punch.

When COVID-19 struck in March 2020, Impermanence was only four days from its world premiere and opening night. After a tumultuous year, Sydney Dance Company bring it to the stage for the first time in 2021, now with added poignancy. Experience the power of dance and music performed live together, laden with meaning, fleeting and vulnerable.

Join Sydney Dance Company in their return to the stage and from devastation, find energy, urgency, radiance and hope.
