About Sylvie Guillem and Russell Maliphant

After the sell-out success of her two London seasons the legendary Sylvie Guillem returns, joined onstage by Russell Maliphant for the very first time at Birmingham Hippodrome.

Sylvie Guillem is widely regarded as the most ‘brilliant ballerina of her generation' THE GUARDIAN

Russell Maliphant has developed a unique approach to choreography, encompassing his vast experience of ballet and contemporary dance as well as capoeira, t'ai chi and yoga, to create a language which is elegant, articulate and resonant.

‘A choreographer of persistent accomplishment and a performer of enduring fascination.... mesmerising' THE TIMES on Russell Maliphant

This mixed programme features Push - a duet combining the abilities of this extraordinary partnership set to an original score by Andy Cowton, and a Solo, performed by Guillem to the music of Carlos Montoya. The evening is completed by Shift, Maliphant's signature solo and the powerful, driving solo, Two, performed by Guillem.

The four pieces are complemented by lighting designed by Maliphant's long-time collaborator Michael Hulls, reflecting the flow and energy between movement and light.

PUSH is produced by Sadler's Wells London in collaboration with Russell Maliphant and Sylvie Guillem.
