The Art House Presents

Impermanence - Sydney Dance Company

A visceral and thrilling exploration of the juxtaposition of beauty and devastation, Sydney Dance Company’s full-length work,  Impermanence is Rafael Bonachela’s newest creation.

Contemporary composer, Bryce Dessner has created a new score full of emotional power. Best known as a founder of American rock band The National and for his film scores for The Revenant and The Two Popes, Dessner was initially inspired by the tragedy of the Australian bush fires and the Notre-Dame fire in Paris. With an exquisite live Quartet, and the full power of Sydney Dance Company’s ensemble, this is an epic, driven performance that packs an emotional punch.

After a tumultuous 2020, Sydney Dance Company are thrilled to bring Impermanence to the stage in 2021, now with added poignancy. Experience the power of dance and music, laden with meaning, fleeting and vulnerable.
Don't miss one of the most renowned dance companies in the country, returning to the Art House stage.
Bryce Dessner’s music composition Impermanence is commissioned by the Australian String Quartet and Sydney Dance Company. This commission has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
