ab [intra] Sydney Dance Company at the Coliseum 28/8- secondary students

28-August-2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Amazing Sydney Dance Company at the new Coliseum Theatre on Friday 28th August 2020 

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 of intense human existence that will command your attention.

The music fuses lush cello with ambient electronica and the exquisite dancers occupy a visually arresting ethereal world. This is a ferociously physical and heartfelt piece which will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.

For secondary students.
