Returning to the Coronet after their sell-out season of 2017, the acclaimed Russell Maliphant Company presents four duets: the world premiere of a new work choreographed by Russell Maliphant and performed by him and Dana Fouras; the male duet Critical Mass (performed by Russell Maliphant and Dickson Mbi); Still (Dickson Mbi and Grace Jabbari); Two Times Two (Dana Fouras and Grace Jabbari).
Lighting design is by award-winning, long-standing company collaborator Michael Hulls and composers include Armand Amar, Andy Cowton and Richard English.
Alongside the duets, Russell Maliphant Company will present a newly created video installation made from footage originally conceived and shot by Tim Etchells and Hugo Glendinning, filmed on the beach of the Atlantic coast of West Cork, Ireland.
