Sydney Dance Company is a legendary force in Australian contemporary dance. Its performances have appeared on the great dance stages of the world, from the Sydney Opera House in Australia, to the Joyce Theatre in New York, the Grand in Shanghai and the Stanislavsky in Moscow. In 2009, Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela’s sensuous aesthetic initiated a new chapter in the annals of the legendary Sydney Dance Company. The company makes its Boston Debut with March 4 & 5, and limited tickets are still available!
Celebrity Series is pleased to offer an artist post-performance talk on Sunday, March 5, with Rafael Bonachela. This 20-minute talk, moderated by Peter DiMuro of The Dance Complex, will be held in front of the stage immediately following the Sunday afternoon performance. In anticipation of the engagement, DiMuro shares his thoughts on the company and its Boston debut.
If a dance concert were a meal, we’d expect an appetizer, main course, dessert. The appropriate wines and perhaps a cappuccino would be delightful! The appetites sated, and we’d have a complete taste sensation.
Seeing an evening of dance, or evening of music at the symphony, can be similar to a fine meal. Unlike a play, which more often deals with a narrative, music and dance exist in the same category of abstraction. And, this is the same abstraction I find when trying to understand how that fine meal I have just eaten does what it does to make me feel so deliciously full and completely taste-bud tantalized! I just…feel it!
