'For two decades, Michael Hulls and Russell Maliphant have been exploring the alchemy of light and dance – light that can gild a moving body with metallic radiance, dissolve it into shimmering atoms, reconfigure it in space. Together, they have produced some of the most purely beautiful images I’ve seen on stage, and the work that opens their 20th anniversary programme is no exception.
Spiral Pass ranks as one of Maliphant’s finest works, but it’s inextricable, too, from the shape-shifting patterns created by Hulls’s lighting.'
Judith Mackrell, The Guardian
'The extraordinary partnership between the master of slow-release dance energy Russell Maliphant and the sorcerer of light Michael Hulls has lasted for two decades.In the outstanding Spiral Pass, the whorls of movement and dancing-on-ice centrifuges illustrate their alchemical combination of light and movement.It ends with a coup de theatre as Hulls’ rectangular panels of light in Piece No.43 create the illusion that the dancers are floating above the stage. Magic? No. Just a trick of the light.'
Neil Norman, The Stage
'Conceal | Reveal is an evening of dazzling physical poetry that leaves you at once rejoicing in Maliphant and Hull’s long partnership and craving the next 20 years, too.'
Mark Monahan, The Telegraph
