Next Occurrence : 10 Mar 2021
Visits by Sydney Dance Company to Adelaide are always highly anticipated by lovers of contemporary choreography. One of their most lauded works of recent years, Rafael Bonachela’s Frame of Mind was set to a striking string quartet by Bryce Dessner. The lead guitarist of iconic American band The National is also the composer described by Steve Reich as “a major voice of his generation” and he has written for Bang-On-A-Can, Roomful of Teeth, Kronos Quartet, the Labèque Sisters, and several feature films, including The Revenant.
A recent revival of Frame of Mind with live accompaniment prompted Bonachela to commission this new Dessner collaboration Impermanence. The score draws inspiration from the tragic Australian bush and Notre-Dame Cathedral fires, and the work is imbued with beauty, radiance and hope in the face of devastation. This stunning piece was scheduled for world premiere in the doomed month of March 2020, but this belated debut season increases its poignancy, and more happily allows Adelaide to be part of it, with our own Australian String Quartet appearing alongside the dancers.
