Sydney Dance Company: Frame of Mind
Friday 14 July, 8pm
80 minutes, including interval
$27 – $45
Sydney Dance Company’s Frame of Mind is a wildly powerful double bill featuring the smash hit Wildebeest by Australia’s own Gabrielle Nankivell and the multi award-winningFrame of Mind from Rafael Bonachela.
Having premiered as part of Sydney Dance Company’s inaugural New Breed season, choreographic prodigy Gabrielle Nankivell’s eloquent Wildebeest showcases the power of dancers as individuals and strength en masse. Moody and animalistic, it’s backed by a stormy and industrial score by Luke Smiles.
Bonachela’s Frame of Mind features a dramatic contemporary-classical soundtrack by Bryce Dessner (from American hit rock band The National), recorded by San Francisco’s virtuosic Kronos Quartet. Winner of all four categories for the 2015 Helpmann Awards including ‘Best Choreography’, ‘Best Dance Work’, ‘Best Male Dancer’, and ‘Best Female Dancer’ for its critically acclaimed premiere season.
Diary of Wombat
Tuesday 8 August, 11am & 6pm
Tickets: $17.50 – $25
Suitable for ages 3+
Mothball, the naughtiest #wombat in Australia, is coming to @FrankstonArtsCentre (live on stage!). Don’t miss the stage adaptation of the much loved children’s picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley.
Bored with her daily routine, Mothball goes in search of shelter and food, creating chaos in the lives of the humans around her. Doormats, bins and washing lines are no match for this mischievous marsupial. Between a packed schedule of scratching, sleeping and eating Mothball discovers that with a bit of persistence, humans are quite easily trained!
