Sydney Festival Dance-DECADANCE at the Opera House

By Ohad Naharin

Sydney Dance Company

Emotional, essential, formidable

British Theatre Guide

Bursting at the seams with vitality and impact, featuring physical refinement alongside playfulness, Decadance is contemporary dance that speaks to everyone.

Made from excerpts of the visionary choreographer Ohad Naharin’s works, crafted over a decade with Tel Aviv’s Batsheva Dance Company and remoulded into a coherent whole, Decadance is much more than the sum of its parts. It’s a sparkling statement from the choreographer and company who brought the groundbreaking Gaga movement language to the world, propelling dancers into more eccentric and experimental places than ever before.

Moving to an eclectic soundtrack ranging from Dick Dale to John Zorn, Goldfrapp to The Beach Boys, 17 of Sydney Dance Company’s finest will take a virtuosic dive into Ohad’s world, bringing fresh life and fresh limbs to a work that is constantly evolving as part of the repertory of major dance companies worldwide.


Since its creation in 2000, theatres and festivals all over the world have played host to the humour, the sadness, the explosion of tribal and individual expression that is Decadance.

Now it’s our turn.

Running time 75 minutes.
