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.
