Signed and titled. Dated "23-04-05" (European dating). Russell Maliphant is a British choreographer who trained at the Royal Ballet School and graduated into Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet before leaving to pursue a career in independent dance. In 2003, Russell created Broken Fall with Sylvie Guillem and George Piper Dances and music by Barry Adamson. Broken Fall premiered at the Royal Opera House in December 2003 and was awarded an Olivier Award in 2003. Rise and Fall – an evening of work at Sadler’s Wells Theatre including Broken Fall – was awarded a Critic’s Circle National Dance Award for Best Choreography (Modern) in 2006. Broken Fall marked the beginning of a collaborative relationship with Sylvie Guillem, which has seen further fruit with the award winning Push and Solo. These two works premiered at Sadler’s Wells in Autumn 2005 in a programme entitled PUSH, which has subsequently toured to sell-out audiences in France, Italy, Spain, Germany and America. Maliphant received a South Bank Show Award and an Oliver Award (2006) for the work; Guillem also received a Time Out Live Award for Solo (2006). 20th Century Subjects , Drawings And Watercolors , Nudes & Figures
