For this special occasion, Russel Maliphant Company presents both new and classic work, including the revival of the iconic Broken Fall with music by Barry Adamson – originally performed by Sylvie Guillem and the BalletBoyz. It will be presented in this programme by Maliphant’s own company of exceptional dancers who will also perform new creations including a quintet and a solo for former Royal Ballet dancer Dana Fouras with a commissioned score by Mukul and costumed by Stevie Stewart.

This year marks the 20th year of the collaboration between Olivier Award-winning duo, Russell Maliphant and lighting designer Michael Hulls. Together, they have developed a unique and unparalleled language between light and movement that is revered the world over.


Prior to the world premiere on Friday 2 October, at a special fundraising event, DanceEast will announce the first successful recipients of its Choreographic Development Award, set up last autumn with a generous legacy gift and donations. Over the last few months 69 artists have applied for an award. With your support we can top up the fund and continue offering talented choreographers the opportunity to develop and nurture their practice and the future of the dance.

We hope you can join us for an exciting evening and support us in our bid to raise £15,000. As a supporter you will enjoy exclusive information about the successful recipients, and we hope at some stage a production will be created and performed at the DanceHouse.

The best ways to support the fund are by booking your tickets for this event and donating online.

Choreographic Development Fund Patrons:
Gary Avis, Humphrey Burton CBE, Lizzie Fargher, Peter Manning and Jeanette Siddall CBE.
