FALLEN, by Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Russell Maliphant, is a darkly thrilling (The Observer) display of grace and power, featuring a specially composed score by award-winning French cinema composer Armand Amar and exquisite lighting (The Times) by Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Michael Hulls.


"With exquisite lighting by Michael Hulls Fallen is a remarkable piece adorned with striking imagery."
– The Times

"Maliphant is a genius, so is Michael Hulls and so are the Ballet Boyz for having taken risks so rewardingly for all of us."
– The Arts Desk

"Harsh, defining lighting from Hulls"
– The Telegraph

"Michael Hulls focuses on the dramatisation of illuminated shadow and shades of darkness, pushing a sense of staunch drama."
– The Stage

"Michael Hulls’ dark, moody lighting underpins the tightly coiled feel of the work, it’s tribal energy and fluent attack."
– The New York Times

"Well lit"
– The Financial Times
