Ascent is an inspired triple bill featuring two world premieres from Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela and renowned international choreographer Marina Mascarell, as well as the return of Antony Hamilton’s critically acclaimed Forever & Ever.

Brimming with physicality, these works temper contemporary classical with futuristic experimentation. Full of electric movement and emotional force, Ascent is an arresting portrait of contemporary dance and its potential to move, excite and activate audiences.

Complete with inventive installations and magnetic musical scores, this creative union is at once forceful, sumptuous and dizzying.

We’re thrilled to welcome Sydney Dance Company back to Tasmania in the first of a series of contemporary dance works in our 2023 Season, celebrating the diversity of work made by local and national artists.
