Russell Maliphant Company: Silent Lines Thursday 9 May

-

- Advertisment -

The Olivier Award winning Russell Maliphant Company announces anticipated new work, Silent Lines, at G Live, Guildford on Thursday 9 May; a ground-breaking new dance production with video artist Panagiotis Tomaras and new team of exceptional dancers.

Following its stop in Guildford, Silent lines will continue on its UK national tour running through to October 2019, featuring dates in Birmingham, Newcastle, Nottingham, Salford Quays, Wycombe, Taunton, Newport, Lancaster and London with more to be announced.

Silent Lines draws upon Maliphant’s tireless research and explorations in dance and experiential anatomy using a unique mix of movement, animated video projection, and lighting. The piece investigates a range of poetic possibilities, using the visually rich and resonant connections between internal and external worlds, the microcosm and the macrocosm.

Drawing on methodologies from a variety of movement disciplines to examine qualities and setting these within a world of animated light, Silent Lines explores the endless web of connections we encompass and embody.

‘Clarity of vision and incisive brilliance… charged with enigmatic work’ The Independent

Russell Maliphant Company was established in 1996 as the framework for Maliphant to initiate productions and to work with his own ensemble of dancers. Since that time, the company has received two Olivier awards, three South Bank Show awards and three Critics’ Circle National Dance awards for best modern choreography, amongst many other national and international awards and nominations.

In April 2018, the Russell Maliphant Company became one of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations. This brings an exciting new chapter to the company’s history, becoming Company in Residence at DanceEast, Ipswich.

Russell Maliphant says ‘For this project, I have chosen to delve into the resource of studies and explorations I have made over the years in anatomy, biomechanics and in particular the body’s fascial system in relation to movement training and choreography.

Allowing that to be the theme to inspire and effect the creation, Silent Lines investigates a range of poetic possibilities, using the visually rich and resonant connections between internal and external worlds, the microcosm and the macrocosm. Drawing on methodologies from a variety of movement disciplines and setting these within a world of animated light, this creation explores the endless web of connections we encompass and embody.’

Silent Lines is co-produced by Sadler’s Wells, and supported by Arts Council England, Cockayne, The London Community Foundation, DanceEast and Ipswich Borough Council. Private supports include, Sandy & Jake Ulrich and Jules Burns.
