After the critically acclaimed world premiere of Impermanence in Sydney in 2021, Sydney Dance Company will tour the visceral and thrilling work by Rafael Bonachela to Dubbo Regional Theatre on Saturday 9 July at 8pm.

Impermanence sees Bonachela join forces with contemporary composer Bryce Dessner (founding member of iconic American rock band The National), who has composed a new score recording with the renowned Australian String Quartet.

Dessner’s emotionally powerful score, has been co-commissioned by Sydney Dance Company and the Australian String Quartet, who last worked together on Bonachela’s Frame of Mind which toured to Dubbo in 2018 with music also composed by Dessner.

On Dessner and Impermanence, Bonachela said, “It’s been so wonderful to work with Bryce Dessner on this exciting new piece. It was initially inspired by the impact of the Notre Dame blaze and the Australian bush fires of 2019, exploring the transience and fragility of existence. After what the world has been through with the pandemic, its return is even more poignant.”

”Sydney Dance Company is one of Australia’s leading contemporary dance ensembles under the artistic direction of Rafael Bonachela.  Our region is fortunate to be included in their national tour which involves unique community engagement opportunities. 

“The offering includes teaching workshops for dance and mainstream schools teachers, dance workshops for local dance students aged 10 years+ and a sneak peak of the company’s dance class and tech rehearsal on the stage the day of the performance. These additional engagement layers are important in getting to know Sydney Dance Company as they enhance the theatre experience whilst concurrently supporting professional development in our region,” said Manager of Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre, Linda Christof. 

Tickets for Impermanence and the Sneak Peak can be booked through the DRTCC box office, by visiting the website, or by calling (02) 6801 4378.
