body:language talk Michael Hulls and Russell Maliphant: Body Light
Choreographer Russell Maliphant and lighting designer Michael Hulls have been collaborating for twenty years, creating a unique and distinctive artistic signature in which the dancers interact with the light that enwraps them. This talk will discuss why light is such an elemental factor in creating a performance environment for dance, and how light technology and the body interact in different ways.
Part of a series of talks in the Lilian Baylis Studio about the body in dance and live performance, philosophy, science, medicine, anthropology and the arts, curated by dramaturg and writer Guy Cools.
In January 2013, the first two seasons of body:language talks were published by Sadler’s Wells in collaboration with the institute Arts in Society of the Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts, Tilburg, Netherlands
