Contemporary Dance at it‘s best!

A Sydney Dance Company Rehearsal

I was lucky to watch a rehearsal at Sydney Dance Company, one of the world‘s strongest forces in contemporary dance. It was the first run after the summer break, prior to starting their tour to South America.

I immediately noticed the amazing diversity of dancers. One young, tall, lean dancer in particular caught my attention during the warm up, doing such incredible stretches it seemed he had no bones at all.

Sydney Dance Company is coming to STEPS DANCE FESTIVAL in Switzerland

When I lived in Sydney I was very lucky to attend some performances of Sydney Dance Company. I loved these very innovative productions that combine contemporary dance, pop culture, fashion, visual and video arts. I will never forget „6 Breaths“, „we unfold“, „Mercury“, „Louder than words“. I can’t wait to see „Interplay“ in Zürich.

Sehenswert: Tanzfestival Steps in der Schweiz

Dieses Jahr findet endlich wieder das Tanzfestival Steps vom 7. April bis zum 1. Mai 2016 statt. Alle zwei Jahre organisiert und sponsort Migros Kulturprozent zeitgenössische Tanzveranstaltung in der ganzen Schweiz. Ich habe mir schon Tickets gekauft. Mit Carte Blanche vom Tagesanzeiger gibt es auf einige Veranstaltungen 25% Rabatt.

Besonders empfehlen kann ich die Sydney Dance Company, die ich schon einige Male gesehen und bewundert habe. Diese Kompanie finde ich einmalig. Die Ausrichtung ist sehr modern, aber es wird noch richtig toll getanzt, energiegeladen und ästhetisch. Weiterlesen „Sehenswert: Tanzfestival Steps in der Schweiz“
