What drives you from within? Journey into a world of exquisite athleticism and human connection in Sydney Dance Company’s electrifying new piece. Premieres 30 May—2 June at Arts Centre Melbourne.

Sydney Dance Company’s National Tour of ab [intra] opened to rave reviews in Sydney and is ‘contemporary dance at its most evocative and beautiful’ (Timeout ★★★★).

ab [intra], meaning ‘from within’ in Latin is ‘an exploration of our primal instincts, our impulses and our visceral responses’, says choreographer Rafael Bonachela. From tenderness to turmoil, ab [intra] is a journey of intense human existence that will command your attention.

The music fuses lush cello concerto with ambient electronica and the exquisite dancers occupy a visually arresting ethereal world. This is a ferociously physical and heartfelt piece that will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.

ab [intra] ‘has to be seen to be believed’ (SMH ★★★★). Don’t miss this electrifying journey showcasing Australia’s best contemporary dancers.

“★★★★ Bold… impressive athleticism and energy… has to be seen to be believed.”  The Sydney Morning Herald
