maliphantworks2 gets 5 & 4 star reviews

For all Russell Maliphant’s success as a choreographer, his latest programme, maliphantworks2, an evening of four duets (plus a short film), is being performed in one of London’s smallest dance spaces, the Print Room in Notting Hill. But then small is definitely beautiful in the Maliphant universe. (Debra Craine, The Times) 5 Stars

Maliphant seems keen on the idea that dance is much more than what we can see and experience in a theatre. In maliphantworks2, dance branches out to other media, in particular to video art. (Anna Zanetti, theatre bubble) 4 Stars

Russell Maliphant’s choreography is fluid, elegant and self-possessed. He doesn’t do flashy: he and his dancers reveal extraordinary strength, not in big moves but in effortlessly sustained lines. Shimmering in golden light, they remain poised and thoughtful. (Zoë Anderson, Independent) 4 Stars

The intimate nature of the venue seemed ideal for a really close up view of his work. What the performers (Dana and Russell) show us is a natural unforced harmony, an ease with each other which must be rooted in many years of shared experience.(Lynette Halewood, DanceTabs) 4 Stars
