Katie with Sydney Dance Company

LesIllumsfor EDMI am thrilled to announce an upcoming collaboration with the amazing Sydney Dance Company featuring musicians of the Sydney Symphony and costumes by the gorgeous Toni Maticevski: Les Illuminations

Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director and Choreographer Rafael Bonachela said, “The music, Les Illuminations, was written by Benjamin Britten for his lover and I wanted to replicate that closeness and intimacy in the dance. This is the first time in quite a while that I have worked with a smaller ensemble of dancers, and a wonderful opportunity to explore the connection between them, by focusing on the detail and emotion that it is possible to capture in a duet.Having previously worked with Katie Noonan in 2011, on my production of Landforms, I was excited at her idea to come together for this new production, in celebration of Britten’s work..Katie’s beautiful voice lends so much power and emotion to music, I know this will be a consuming experience for audiences and the dancers who have the chance to perform with her on stage.”
