Silent Lines

Russell Maliphant

Silent Lines draws upon Maliphant’s research and explorations in dance and 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 and setting these within a world of animated light, Silent Lines explores the endless web of connections we encompass and embody.

Since that time he 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.

Russell Maliphant’s work is characterised by a unique approach to flow and energy and an ongoing exploration of the relationship between movement, light and music. For 20 years, Maliphant has worked closely with pioneering lighting designer Michael Hulls to explore and realise these ideas. Russell Maliphant and Michael Hulls are both Associate Artists of Sadler’s Wells.

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.
