Sydney Dance Company opens 2016 with CounterMove — an exhilarating double bill that will intrigue, move and entertain you.

Alexander Ekman’s Cacti is a brilliantly conceived, laugh-out-loud funny piece that dares to poke fun at contemporary dance. Featuring a string quartet live on stage, Ekman’s witty and energetic choreography makes its Melbourne debut having left a global trail of rapturous reviews.

While Rafael Bonachela’s world premiere, Lux Tenebris explores light and darkness with fiercely physical movement and deep, electronic beats by composer Nick Wales (long-term collaborator of Sarah Blasko).

‘Forget everything you think you know about contemporary dance’ (Drum Media). Don’t miss CounterMove in it’s limited Melbourne season.
