Sydney Dance Company’s Frame of Mind at Capitol Theatre Tamworth on June 28 is a wildly powerful double bill featuring the smash hit Wildebeest by Australia’s own Gabrielle Nankivell and the multi award-winning Frame of Mind from Rafael Bonachela.

Having premiered as part of Sydney Dance Company’s inaugural New Breed season, choreographic prodigy Gabrielle Nankivell’s eloquent Wildebeest showcases the power of dancers as individuals and strength en masse. Moody and animalistic, it’s backed by a stormy and industrial score by Luke Smiles.

Bonachela’s Frame of Mind features a dramatic contemporary-classical soundtrack by Bryce Dessner (from American hit rock band The National), recorded by San Francisco’s virtuosic Kronos Quartet.

Frame of Mind was the winner of all four categories for the 2015 Helpmann Awards including Best Choreography, Best Dance Work, Best Male Dancer, and Best Female Dancer for its critically acclaimed premiere season.

Mr Stink is a delightful live theatre experience based on the award-winning children’s book Mr Stink, written by David Walliams. Walliams, revered for his comic genius in BBC’S Little Britain and admired by many for his charm and quick wit in the talent show Britain’s Got Talent, is now one of the most popular children’s authors in the UK.

It tells the story of Chloe, just about the loneliest girl in the world, who makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp.  

There are three opportunities to see this children’s production at Capitol Theatre on June 16 and 17 (the 12.30pm show on 16 June has already sold out).  So jump online now or visit Capitol Theatre Box Office and grab tickets to the 6pm show on June 16 or 10am show on June 17.
