The Australian company has danced in Guanajuato before. It managed to arrive in our city during the grueling days after 9/11. Now it back with its new choreographer-director, the Spaniard Rafael Bonachela aand I would think a completely new set of dancers, sixteen in all. They performed a work of his against spectacular lighting: the changing, starry night sky, startling flashes of light, myriad points of a single color.
My take: thumbs up for the few sections that got under my skin, especially the solo by an Asian man and sensual duos by a blonde man and woman. I admit to feeling drowsy during long stretches of the work when the groupings and movements didn't speak to me.
