The Olivier Award-winning Russell Maliphant Company will perform the world première of Silent Lines at DanceEast in Ipswich in April 2019 with video artist Panagiotis Tomaras and new team of dancers.
The performance at DanceEast, where it is Company in Residence, will be followed by a UK tour to October 2019, featuring dates in Nottingham, Newcastle, Guildford, Salford Quays, Wycombe, Birmingham, Taunton, Newport, Lancaster and London with more to be announced.
Maliphant said, “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.”
