Sydney Dance Company | Our Season 2023

ab [intra]

Sydney Dance Company’s Sydney season of ab [intra] opened to rave reviews and is ‘contemporary dance at its most evocative and beautiful’ (Timeout ).

ab [intra], meaning ‘from within’ in Latin, is ‘an exploration of our primal instincts, our impulses and our visceral responses’, says choreographer Rafael Bonachela. From tenderness to turmoil, ab [intra] is a journey through the intensity of human existence that will command your attention. The music fuses lush cello with ambient electronics and the exquisite dancers occupy a visually arresting ethereal world. This is a ferociously physical and heartfelt piece that will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.

ab [intra] ‘has to be seen to be believed’ (SMH).

Don’t miss this electrifying work showcasing Australia’s best contemporary dancers. ab [intra] premiered in Sydney in May 2018 and has toured Australia as well as Austria, Finland, Poland, Spain and France.
