Choreographer gets to the Point with new work
RENOWNED choreographer Russell Maliphant will premiere his latest work at The Point later this month.
Still Current, a new evening of solos, duets and a trio by the internationally acclaimed choreographer and Sadler’s Wells associate artist Maliphant, comes to the Eastleigh venue on September 26 and 27.
Inspired by his ensemble dancers – Thomasin Gülgeç, Dickson Mbi, and Carys Staton, Maliphant once again works with his longstanding collaborator, lighting designer and fellow Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Michael Hulls. Still Current will also see Russell Maliphant return to the UK stage.
The evening presents a diverse physical language that integrates qualities and vocabulary from ballet, contemporary dance and martial arts and celebrates the technical strength of Maliphant’s world class company.
The evening’s performance features three new works including a duet created for Carys Staton, drawing on her strength and versatility as a dancer. Staton is paired with Maliphant for the performance at The Point.
Still Current also features a new solo choreographed on Dickson Mbi who recently stunned audiences with his strength and exceptional popping style in The Rodin Project, the dance film Erebus and the Lucozade Revive commercial.
The evening also includes a new work for three male dancers drawing on, among other things, the styles of Brazilian martial art of capoeira.
Along with these three new works Still Current includes the critically-acclaimed Afterlight (Part One), winner of the Critics Circle National Dance Award for Best Choreography.
