The Wharf Revue Theatre Royal, Hobart – 8 -10 March The Sydney Theatre Company production of the hilarious political satire The Wharf Rev ue comes to the Theatre Royal in March.

TheLandofYes&TheLandofNo Theatre Royal, Hobart – 8 and 9 June A rare treat in June is the Sydney Dance Company’s The L and of Yes & The Land of No. Beautifully-wrought from the world of signs and sy mbols in our everyday lives, artistic director R afael Bonachela’s celebrated production had its Australian premiere in 2011 and in 2012 comes to the Theatre Royal. Every exquisite movement picks out the irresistible intensity of Ezio Bosso’s score, with the Company’s magnificent dancers performing on a set of fluoro tubes and rich, constantly-changing colours. Designed by a crack British team, this is a production that promises all the physical precision and enthralling dance that have dazzled the Company’s audiences from Shanghai to Venice.
