DANCE

2 One An­other Just when you think the Syd­ney Dance Com­pany dancers couldn’t pos­si­bly look more mag­nif­i­cent, more dy­namic, more su­per­hu­man, they do. In 2

One An­other, the chore­og­ra­phy by SDC artis­tic di­rec­tor Rafael Bonachela is in­tri­cately de­tailed and pat­terned. Those 16 amazing dancers are pushed to the limit and be­yond in a com­plex weave of group dy­nam­ics, duos and so­los. The so­phis­ti­ca­tion quo­tient is sky­high. Less present is the chance to en­gage emo­tion­ally with a work that has hu­man in­ter­ac­tion as its theme. Nick Wales’s gor­geous thread­ing of baroque and Re­nais­sance mu­sic through his score al­most com­pen­sates and near the end Juli­ette Bar­ton and Bern­hard Knauer (pic­tured above) mem­o­rably reach for some­thing be­yond ex­hil­a­rat­ing move­ment.
