The Australian and international dancers have performed at prestigious international venues, from the Joyce Theatre in New York to the Grand in Shanghai, at the Stanislavsky in Moscow and their home theatre, the , but these appearances mark the company’s UK debut.

Sydney Dance Company began as a group founded in 1969, and since 2009 the ensemble of 17 dancers has been led by Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela.

The Ascent programme merges contemporary classical with futuristic experimentation for an evening of “thought-provoking dance” in a “bold programme of diverse works exploring themes of humanity, technology and nature”.

I Am-ness, choreographed by Artistic Director of Sydney Dance Company Bonachela, is set to Pēteris Vasks’ Lonely Angel. Marina Mascarell’s The Shell, A Ghost, The Host & The Lyrebird is performed to a score by Nick Wales. The final piece in the programme is Antony Hamilton’s Forever & Ever which is set to a minimal electronic score by Julian Hamilton and engages with ideas of duplication, unison and modification in movement.
