Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Russell Maliphant returns to Sadler’s Wells with a brand new work, AfterLight, for two nights only.

This new full evening work from the Russell Maliphant Company titled AfterLight contains the solo AfterLight (Part One) which was shown at Sadler’s Wells in October 2009 as part of In The Spirit Of Diaghilev. The 15-minute solo, which was subsequently nominated for the 2010 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production, has now been developed into a full-length piece for three dancers.

Using photographs of Vaslav Nijinsky and his geometric drawings as inspiration, AfterLight (Part One) was developed by Maliphant with lighting designer Michael Hulls and with projections evolved in collaboration with Es Devlin, onedotzero and animator Jan Urbanowski.

AfterLight continues the Russell Maliphant Company’s relationship with dancer Daniel Proietto, who is joined by two female dancers. The new work features music by Andy Cowton, composer of the hugely successful Maliphant pieces Two and Push.

Theatregoers younger than five will not be admitted to Russell Maliphant Company – AfterLight.
