Work explores forces of fate
A shock accident led to the creation of
one half of The Sydney Dance
Company s powerful double bill
Frame of Mind.
This breathtaking start to the 2015
season includes the Australian
premiere of master choreographer
William Forsythe s Quintett and
Sydney Dance Company artistic
director Rafael Bonachela s inventive
Bonachela said the pressure was on
him to create a suitable counter
balance to Forsythe s legendary work.
Reeling after an accident which left
his mother in hospital for 10 months,
Bonachela considered just how
quickly circumstances could change
and it led him to create a work which
explored determination and the
overarching forces of fate.
"I was having lunch with my family
in Barcelona one December and within
two weeks my mother was in hospital
and really very critical," he said.
"The work is not about my mother.
But what happened to her made
me really think about this idea that one
moment can change things forever and
you can never know what s coming
around the corner." The fast-paced
contemporary-classical soundtrack, by
Bryce Dessner from American rock
band The National and recorded by
internationally renowned Kronos
Quartet, was a deliberate choice
Bonachela made to contrast the mood
of Quintett and keep audiences on the
edge of their seats.
"It was my idea that the works
complemented in a contrasting way,"
"They are both emotive works, very
much about people and feelings, but
very different in feel."
Frame of Mind tours to Canberra
from Thursday to Saturday and leads a
series of collected works which
celebrate the 50th anniversary of the
Canberra Theatre Centre.
"It s an absolute honour for us to be
leading that celebration," he said.
"There is so much investment that
has been made in terms of effort and
focus and the work the dancers give to
To take it to Canberra and then on
to Melbourne really allows the dancers
to grow in the work.
