ArtPower! Presents: Russell Maliphant Company
Innovative Choreographer Russell Maliphant Presents Afterlight at Mandeville Auditorium
$28.00 - $46.00
$14.00 - $23.00*
Russell Maliphant's work is characterized by his unique approach to flow and energy as well as an ongoing exploration between movement, light and music. His long and close collaboration with pioneering lighting designer Michael Hulls creates spellbinding images that give "visual shape to the transforming power of the dancing body and the dancing imagination" (The Guardian
). With Afterlight
, Maliphant creates a gorgeously intimate reflection of the dark side of one of ballet's greatest superstars, Vaslav Nijinsky. Confined during his later years for schizophrenia, Nijinsky's drawings during that time are Maliphant's inspiration for his deeply touching choreography. This ArtPower! event at UC San Diego features a post-performance conversation with the artists.
