WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
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 martial arts, to create a language which is elegant, articulate and resonant. The production features four works, including Two, a dazzling solo which seems to trap Guillem in a box of light. The works are complemented by Michael Hulls' stunning lighting and accompanied by music from Andy Cowton, Carlos Montoya and Shirley Thompson. Since its debut in 2005, PUSH has received four major awards: an Olivier Award, a Time Out Award, Best Choreography (Modern) at the National Dance Awards and the South Bank Show Dance Award.
