A few days before Sydney Dance Company was due to premiere Impermanence, COVID-19 hit and the season was cancelled. It was a “heartbreaking disappointment”, said Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela, who had choreographed the work to a new score by Bryce Dessner, co-commissioned with the Australian String Quartet who were to perform the music live on stage. Initially inspired by the bushfires and the fire at Notre Dame, Impermanence was originally a short piece programmed as part of a triple bill. But Bonachela and Dessner have used the hiatus to expand it into a full-length work, which embraces the impact of the coronavirus as it explores the juxtaposition of beauty and devastation.
