19th China Shanghai International Arts Festival

Sydney Dance Company’s CounterMove explores luminescence and life in a double bill that will enchant, compel and amuse with exhilarating physical dance by some of Australia’s finest dancers.

From one of the world’s most exciting choreographers comes a laugh-out-loud funny and affectionate tribute and parody of modern art: Cacti.

Swedish Alexander Ekman’s witty and energetic piece, performed by the full company and a string quartet, will take you in with a knowing wink, then surprise you with its bracing physicality.

The Australian proclaimed Cacti ‘… a delight: witty, effervescent, playful, surreal and joyously physical’, Time Out Sydney lauded its ‘infectious playful energy and absolutely incisive wit.’

Crikey.com called it ‘ blindingly brilliant’ and the Daily Telegraph noted the audience’s laughter was ‘impossible to suppress’. Cacti has been on tour since it premiered in 2013 performing to sold-out audiences.
