sydney dance company : in dance : four new dance works

INDance provides a platform for independent choreographers and creatives to present their work, with the aim of building capacity, improving access and participation across the sector while reflecting the rich diversity of choreographic voices in contemporary Australia.

This short season of dance works were chosen through an expression of interest process and reviewed by an external panel of industry advisors led by Rafael Bonachela.

Applicants were assessed on their works, their suitability for the program and the performance space, and whether  INDance could provide an appropriate platform to showcase their work.

Four incredible artists have been chosen for the 2023 INDance program – Rachel Arianne Ogle, Kimberley Parkin, Ryuichi Fujimura and Jasmin Sheppard.

Sydney Dance Company is thrilled to be able to provide production, technical, publicity and marketing support for the artists involved and acknowledge the Neilson Foundation’s visionary investment in this program over the next three years to enable the growth and development of Australian dance-makers.

After a sell-out inaugural season of INDance in 2022, Sydney Dance Company is delighted to invite audiences back to the Neilson Studio at the Wharf for this curated program which will explore diverse and innovative choreographic concepts that push the boundaries of dance and reflect the current Australian contemporary dance landscape.

Sydney Dance Company’s Artistic Director, Rafael Bonachela said; “I am so excited to be launching the 2023 season of INDance at Sydney Dance Company, generously supported by the Neilson Foundation. It is thrilling to be able to bring four diverse, independent contemporary dance works to Sydney audiences in the Neilson Studio, at Sydney Dance Company’s Wharf Studios. Supporting Australian choreographers and creatives is at the heart of Sydney Dance Company’s mission, and it is amazing to see INDance return for its second season.”
