Russell Maliphant Company - The Rodin Project
em Sadler's Wells
Inspired by the works of the great French sculptor, Auguste Rodin, award-winning choreographer Russell Maliphant's latest work made its UK premiere at Sadler's Wells as part of British Dance Edition earlier this year. Greeted by a standing ovation, it impressed critics with its "ravishing" lighting (The Guardian), "glorious set" (Daily Telegraph) and dancing "as coldly erotic as it is beautiful" (Evening Standard). After successfully touring across Europe, The Rodin Project returns for three nights, giving audiences a second chance to see this visually arresting piece set to Alexander Zekke's entrancing score. The Rodin Project also features lighting design by Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Michael Hulls, set design by Es Devlin and Bronia Housman, and costumes by Stevie Stewart. For this new production, Maliphant has collaborated with a group of extraordinary performers, using a movement vocabulary influenced by the dance forms of popping, breaking and contemporary dance, integrated through Maliphant's language of flow, form and dynamics.
