THE RODIN PROJECT
After the triumph of his Olivier Award-nominated and Critics’ Circle National Dance Award-winning Afterlight, this production was inspired by the works of the great French sculptor, Auguste Rodin.
Maliphant collaborated with a group of extraordinary performers, using a movement vocabulary influenced by the dance forms of popping, breaking and contemporary dance, integrated through Maliphant’s language of flow, form and dynamics.
The Rodin Project was performed to a newly commissioned score by Russian composer Alexander Zekke and made in collaboration with lighting designer Michael Hulls, set designers Es Devlin and Bronia Housman and costume designer Stevie Stewart.
A Sadler’s Wells/Russell Maliphant Production, co-produced by Théâtre National de Chaillot, Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, and The Joyce Theater New York
