Still Current is a new evening of work by internationally acclaimed choreographer Russell Maliphant and masterful lighting and projection designer Michael Hulls.
The evening features newly created duets, trios and solos danced by his remarkable company of dancers including Dickson Mbi, who recently stunned audiences with his strength and incredible popping style in The Rodin Project, the dance film Erebus and the Lucozade Revive TV commercial.
He is joined by Carys Staton, whose energetic elegance and delicate strength are showcased in the new creations, and the remarkable Thomasin Gülgeç whose fluid agility and grace are not only demonstrated in the new works but also in the award winning solo Afterlight (Part One) which is included as part of the evening.
There is a diverse physical language across the pieces, integrating qualities and vocabulary from contemporary dance, ballet and martial arts. Musically, the evening includes an eclectic mix of sound with compositions fromEric Satie, long time collaborator Andy Cowton and a newly commissioned score by the sublime Armand Amar,well known for his film scores. Costume designs are by Stevie Stewart with animation created by Jan Urbanowski.
