Sydney Dance Company: Impermanence
Choreographer, Rafael Bonachela’s powerful new production, accompanied by an emotional original score, is inspired by the tragedy of the Australian bushfires and the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in Paris. With an exquisite recording by the Australian String Quartet, the performance is described as visually hypnotic, and is particularly poignant, given that its premiere was cancelled four days before its intended release in 2020.

Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark – A Badaptation of the Bard
This cheeky adaption may not please die-hard Shakespeare fans, but it transforms the Bard’s masterpiece into a hilarious show for children. The Listies playfully pull apart and turn the show into a nutterly silly and enjoyable piece of all-ages theatre, where kids are encouraged to make as much noise as they want for a change. Recommended for ages 5+. Be prepared for pillow fights, pirates, ninjas and aliens.
