Homecoming production for Mt Ousley dancer

Lachlan Bell seldom misses a gym session – not with those leggings waiting in his wardrobe.

The former Mount Ousley boy has returned to the Illawarra to perform in the Sydney Dance Company’s contemporary work 2 One Another.

The performance, set against a huge screen backdrop at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre, is the result of a collaboration between the company, poet Samuel Webster and Barcelona-born choreographer Rafael Bonachela.

Its soundtrack combines existing music with original composition while the screen flickers and flares, mimicking thousands of lightbulbs. 

‘‘There’s a track in it that’s almost like dubstep, but there’s also beautiful operatic numbers which are quite heartfelt,’’ Bell said. 

‘‘It’s fun to do [with] typical Rafael Bonachela choreography – angular and sharp.’’ 

The production includes 17 dancers and is at IPAC today from 2pm and 8pm.  Tickets: $65/$60/$39. Phone 42245999.
