Sydney Dance Company’s 2015 season bursts into life with a powerful double bill – a showcase of deeply personal works from two acclaimed choreographic talents: living legend William Forsythe and Sydney Dance Company’s own Artistic Director, Rafael Bonachela.

Appearing for its Australian premiere, Quintett is Forsythe’s poignant masterpiece, a beautiful tribute and glorious celebration of movement, light and life. Bonachela’s brand new work Frame of Mind is also shot through with shades of loss and uncertainty, yet brings a very different perspective to these eternal themes.

Don’t miss this gripping evening of dance – a hymn to the joy and pain of life and a salute to the redemptive power of motion.
