Sydney Dance Company’s Frame of Mind at Capitol Theatre Tamworth on June 28 is a wildly powerful double bill featuring the smash hit Wildebeest by Australia’s own Gabreielle Nankivell and the multi award-winning Frame of Mind from Rafael Bonachela.

Having premiered as part of Sydney Dance Company’s inaugural New Breed season, choreographic prodigy Gabrielle Nankivell’s eloquent Wildebeest showcases the power of dancers as individuals and strength en masse. Moody and animalistic, it’s backed by a stormy and industrial score by Luke Smiles.

Bonachela’s Frame of Mind features a dramatic contemporary-classical soundtrack by Bryce Dessner (from American hit rock band The National), recorded by San Francisco’s virtuosic Kronos Quartet. It was the winner of all four categories for the 2015 Helpmann Awards including Best Choreography, Best Dance Work, Best Male Dancer, and Best Female Dancer for its critically acclaimed premiere season.
