One of Australia’s leading contemporary dance companies is the Sydney Dance Company. They are being lead under the Artistic Direction of Rafael Bonachela. The Sydney Dance Company has been presenting in Sydney, all over Australia and even internationally.

Sydney Dance Company began in 1969 founded by dancer Suzanne Musitz. In the early 1970s, the company was known as The Dance Company (NSW) and received government funding annually as its reputation and public support grew. The company changed its name to Sydney Dance Company in 1979 spearheaded by Graeme Murphy, the Artistic Director and Janet Vernon, the Associate Director.

In 2009 the Sydney Dance Company gave birth to a new era in Australian contemporary dance when Rafael Bonachela was appointed as its Artistic Director. Rafael began as a guest choreographer at the Sydney Dance Company in 2008 with 360° and since then has premiered others like 2009’s We Unfold, 2010’s6 Breaths and 2011’s LANDforms.

A statement of Art Director Rafael Bonachela at the Sydney Morning Herald said, “I will create a group of dancers who will be unique. A group who will inspire choreographers and make them want to work with us. It’s about blossoming and opening up … rebirth.”

Sydney Dance Company’s headquarters are located where other arts companies like Carnivale, Bangarra Dance Theatre, ATYP and Sydney Philharmonia Choirs are located, at The Wharf, Pier 4, at Walsh Bay. Sydney Dance Company is being supported by the Australia Council, the Ministry for the Arts of the New South Wales Government. It is also supported by sponsors, other company supporters and its partners.

Sydney Dance Company is one of Australia’s leading contemporary dance companies, presenting new works in Sydney, around Australia and internationally under the Artistic Direction of Rafael Bonachela. In 2011, the company will perform in Sydney, Canberra, Germany, Western Australia, Darwin, Brisbane, New York, Barcelona and the UK.

“I will create a group of dancers who will be unique. A group who will inspire choreographers and make them want to work with us. It’s about blossoming and opening up … rebirth.”

RAFAEL BONACHELA, SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

“…beautifully controlled and engrossingly effective … creative precision and exhilarating energy.”
