Unique, innovative, emotive and game changing, INTERPLAY is like nothing you would have ever seen before. Broken up into 3 distinctive and different productions the 3 fragments each offer a unique experience, the first piece, 2 in D Minor was choreographed by Rafael Bonachela, the second is Jacopo Godani’s Raw Models and the final piece L’Chaim was choreographed by Gideon Obarzanek’s; each piece further emphasises the versatility, passion, elegance and strength of each dancer from the Sydney Dance Company.
The juxtaposition of the traditional and classical music compliments the modern and disjointed dance movements, creating a unique, yet oddly familiar energy throughout. Everything from costumes, lighting and sound constantly breaks the norm and dares to be different, a liberating and sometimes confronting experience as a viewer.
In a world where a lot of our knowledge about contemporary dance is taken from international reality television shows and amateur youtube videos, it is very refreshing to see such modern movements breaking the boundaries here within Australia.
The Melbourne season runs through until Saturday May 10 at the Southbank Theatre.
