Sydney Dance Company's CounterMove explores luminescence and life in a double bill that will enchant, compel and amuse with exhilarating physical dance by some of Australia's finest dancers. From one of the world's most exciting choreographers, comes a laugh-out-loud funny and affectionate tribute and parody of modern art: Cacti. Swedish Alexander Ekman's witty and energetic piece, performed by the full Company and a string quartet, will take you in with a knowing wink and then surprise you with its bracing physicality. Rafael Bonachela's world premiere, Lux Tenebris, provides the perfect contrast: light and darkness emerging from a dusky sonic landscape by composer Nick Wales (long-term collaborator of Sarah Blasko). Movement follows deep, unexpected, visceral beats and sharp, sudden twists to discover a dark place where there is a space for beauty and light. Bonachela's work, as always, is deeply emotional and immersive. CounterMove will intrigue, move and entertain you.
