Media Release

Sydney Dance Company

This stunning show, choreographed by Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela, has enraptured audiences across the globe and been recognised with multiple awards including Most Outstanding Choreography, Most Outstanding Performance by a Company and Most Outstanding Female Dancer (Australian Dance Awards 2013), Best Ensemble and Best Female Dancer (Green Room Awards 2012) and Best Female Dancer (Helpmann Awards 2012).

Beautiful, dynamic and highly physical, 2 One Another is performed by 16 of the best contemporary dancers in Australia, including multi-award winning Charmene Yap (2014 and 2012 Helpmann Awards, Best Female Dancer in a Dance/Theatre Production; 2013 Best Female Dancer, Australian Dance Awards), Gisborne-born dancer Alana Sargent, and her fellow New Zealand School of Dance graduates, Thomas Bradley and Jesse Scales.

The show is the result of an exciting collaboration between Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director and choreographer Rafael Bonachela, set and costume designer Tony Assness, and composer/music director Nick Wales, with poetry by Samuel Webster.

An exultant and sensual study of human interaction and relationships, 2 One Another explores the couple (2), the individual (One), and the group (Another), in ‘A thrillingly fluent piece that maintains its vibrancy over its hour-long journey” (Sydney Morning Herald).

The performance is set against a stunning digital backdrop of motion design and animation and features an exceptional soundtrack - seamlessly embracing Baroque to electronica - shot through with poetry fragments created and utilised during the development of the work.

2 One Another premiered in Sydney in March 2012, and has since toured to every state and territory in Australia, in addition to nine cities across North America, South America and Russia. In 2015 the show will tour to Europe and return to South America.

‘Exceedingly fine and exciting, beautifully crafted to integrate sound, design and choreography’ – Adelaide Review

Howard Davis: Review - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances. It is both a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers, and a celebration of the decency and compassion of ordinary people who look out for one another when the state has abandoned them.
