Sydney Dance Company

Lux Tenebris, from CounterMove

Image by Peter GreigLux Tenebris is a world premiere work by Rafael Bonachela exploring light and darkness. Movement follows deep, unexpected, visceral beats and sharp, sudden twists to discover a dark place where there is space for beauty and light. Lux Tenebris is a fiercely physical piece performed by the full Sydney Dance Company to the dusky electronic sonic landscape sounds of composer Nick Wales. 

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.

Led since 2009 by Spanish-born Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela, the Company has cemented its reputation as a creative powerhouse, actively creating and touring new work with an ensemble of 16 exceptional dancers, featuring collaborations with emerging and established Australian and international choreographers, designers, composers and musicians.
