AFTER MORE THAN A DECADE AWAY SYDNEY DANCE COMPANY RETURNS!

Auckland Live presents
Sydney Dance Company
2 ONE ANOTHER

Sydney Dance Company at the peak of their powers. – Sydney Morning Herald

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

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
