Concerning

Russell Maliphant, the former dancer with the Royal Ballet of London, explores the phenomena of gravity and balance, working on speed and movement while sculpting bodies by using chiaroscuro lighting. Each of his pieces is a unique experience, sublimated by his collaboration with the lighting scenographer Michael Hulls.

A dancer in light  
At the time of the premiere of Spiral Pass in 2014, Russell Maliphant examined the traditional figure of the pas de deux while taking inspiration both from breakdance and from the experiences and qualities of his dancers. The music itself, which accompanies this play of male/female balancing acts, was in fact elaborated while he wrote the piece.
It is once again around the possibilities, which are at once physical, technical and stylistic, offered by the dancers at this disposal, in this case those of the Ballet of the Opéra de Lyon, that the British choreographer has based his new creation. The result, oscillating between the baroque and the contemporary, with a perfect combination of dance, work on lighting and music, promises to be an explosion of poetic images in a powerful dream world.

In resonance with the Lyon Biennale of Contemporary Art
