Featuring two of Australia's pre-eminent arts companies together on stage - Sydney Dance Company and the Australian String Quartet.

Glasshouse Port Macquarie presents

Sydney Dance Company's

A visceral and thrilling exploration of the juxtaposition of beauty and devastation, Sydney Dance Company’s full-length work, Impermanence is Rafael Bonachela’s newest creation.

Contemporary composer, Bryce Dessner has composed a new score full of emotional power. Best known as a founder of American rock band The National and for his film scores for The Revenant and The Two Popes, Dessner was initially inspired by the tragedy of the Australian bush fires and the Notre-Dame fire in Paris. 

Experience the power of dance and music performed live together, laden with meaning, fleeting and vulnerable.

Join Sydney Dance Company in their return to the stage and from devastation, find energy, urgency, radiance and hope.

Bryce Dessner’s music composition Impermanence is commissioned by the Australian String Quartet and Sydney Dance Company. This commission has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
