Description: Following his Olivier Award-nominated and Critics' Circle National Dance Award-winning AfterLight, Russell Maliphant comes to The Joyce with The Rodin Project, a Sadler's Wells/Russell Maliphant production inspired by the works of the great French sculptor, Auguste Rodin. For this work, Maliphant draws on the high energy talents of extraordinary performers and a commissioned score by Russian composer Alexander Zekke to create a movement vocabulary influenced by popping, breaking, and contemporary dance, which he integrates with his own language of flow, form, and dynamics. "Dancing bodies rarely look more beautiful than in the work of Russell Maliphant," proclaims The Guardian, and The Rodin Project is no exception.
