Introduction

“Dancing bodies rarely look more beautiful than in the work of Russell Maliphant” THE GUARDIAN

Russell Maliphant Company was established in 1996 as the framework for Russell Maliphant to initiate productions and to work with his own ensemble of dancers. Since that time, he has received two Laurence Olivier awards, two South Bank Show awards and three Critics’ Circle National Dance awards in the United Kingdom 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. Maliphant has created works for renowned companies and artists including Sylvie Guillem, Robert Lepage, English National Ballet, BalletBoyz, Munich’s Bayerisches Staatsballett and Lyon Opera Ballet.

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

Russell Maliphant is an Associate Artist of Sadler’s Wells.
