Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Russell Maliphant, inspired by Greek mythology and historic Hellenic dances, portrays the changing form of traditional and contemporary dance, and the flow of inspiration from one to the other. Maliphant and his partners excel in ravelling and unravelling these transformations through dance, movement, music, costumes and light.
The Thread features lighting by fellow Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist, the “choreographer of light” Michael Hulls, and the explosive electronic music of Greek composer Vangelis, whose famous score for Chariots of Fire won him an Oscar in 1981.
