The days will begin with a warm up focused on increasing body awareness, articulation and strength whilst exploring choices in movement and dynamics within a playful practice. Drawing on anatomical information as a resource for movement and improvisation, this time will encourage connection, balance and developing listening skills for the body in movement. Sessions will focus on putting these skills to use in tasks and improvisation for the creation of a broad range of possibilities. 

Russell Maliphant formed his own company in 1996 and has been exploring the diversity of movement over his long career. He has choreographed and performed for his own company as well as many others and created works for the likes of Sylvie Guillem, Dana Fouras, Carlos Accosta, as well as many other international companies around the globe.

He initially trained at The Royal Ballet School and graduated into Sadlers Wells Royal Ballet before leaving to pursue explorations in other movement forms including contact improvisation, yoga, capoeira and contemporary dance. He has continually pursued ongoing learning about the body, training in massage, bio-mechanics, Rolfing structural integration and learning from the work of coaches and physio’s such as David Grey, Gary Ward and Dave O’Sullivan, (whose physiotherapy mentorship he completed earlier this year). His work aims to increase the flow, dynamics and potential for healthy sustainable movement ranges and articulation, incorporating experiential anatomy and awareness for a playful, improvisational approach to movement and training influenced through his studies. He gained a PhD in 2020, and has been an associate of Sadlers Wells, UK since 2005.
