Showcasing a rich diversity of choreographic ideas, an incredibly talented group of choreographers have created Covid-safe, socially distanced new works on members of Sydney Dance Company; a true reflection of how art and creativity can respond to this unprecedented time and its impact on performance.

We're thrilled to announce that the four New Breed choreographers this year are Joel Bray from Melbourne, Sydney-based Raghav Handa and Sydney Dance Company dancers Chloe Leong and Jesse Scales. Don’t miss this limited season of raw talent and, unique fresh ideas from some of Australia’s most exciting dance creators. New Breed is made possible by The Balnaves Foundation and co-presented with Carriageworks.
