Media Release

AFTER MORE THAN A DECADE AWAY SYDNEY DANCE COMPANY RETURNS!

Auckland Live presents
Sydney Dance Company
2 ONE ANOTHER

Australia’s leading contemporary dance company Sydney Dance Company makes their long-awaited return to Auckland, with their multi award winning internationally acclaimed production, 2 One Another, for 4 shows only from November 13 – 15 at ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre, Auckland Live.

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

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
