Sydney Dance Company: ab [intra]

An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until 11 June 2022
One event on 8 June 2022 at 6:30 pm
The name ab [intra] means “from within” in Latin, and Rafael Bonachela’s 75-minute work, which premiered in 2018, does indeed sweep you a beautiful, almost otherworldly place. Sydney Dance Company recently performed it on a sold-out French tour. Now the electrifying work has a return Sydney season. Performed to ambient electronic music by Nick Wales and a lush cello concerto by Pēteris Vasks, ab [intra] is a ferociously physical yet heartfelt work.

Rafael Bonachela’s ab [intra] is coming to Sydney fresh from the international stages of France – including a sold-out season in Paris!
ab [intra], ‘from within’ in Latin, is ‘dazzling, electrifying, heartfelt’ – Limelight.
Exploring our primal instincts, our impulses and our visceral responses, ab [intra] is a journey through the intensity of human existence that will command your attention.
The music fuses lush cello with ambient electronica and the exquisite dancers occupy a visually arresting ethereal world.
This is a ferociously physical and emotional piece which will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.
