360º


Rafael Bonachela’s 360º, Sydney Dance Company
, originally uploaded by mxccuba.

I’ve wanted to see the Sydney Dance Company since forever. It seemed that I always saw the marketing material too late and as a consequence missed their performances. So, needless to say, I was very much looking forward to seeing 360º. Finally. And thankfully it delivered fully toned physique and physicality, which I love. Although, curiously I witnessed some of the palest bodies I’ve ever seen (particularly in Australia). Initially, there was some sensory overload (never thought I’d say that about anything, ever) and simultaneously, slow and meandering. Aside from some early twittering, cliqued movements (is contemporary dance still suffering a psychofrenic crisis?) and being distracted by such thoughts, my experience gradually settled into a better rhythm and became total. The male ensemble and the waves acts/movements produced some beautiful and compelling moving images. There were even some slippery yoga tiger moves and the pop light/music was perhaps the most pure.
