Watch video clip

First premiered at Sadler's Wells in 2005, PUSH has enjoyed three sell-out seasons in London, received five star reviews and toured throughout Europe and New York.

Sylvie Guillem is widely regarded as the most "brilliant ballerina of her generation" (The Guardian). Russell Maliphant has developed a unique approach to choreography, encompassing his vast experience in ballet and contemporary dance as well as capoeira, t'ai chi and yoga to create a language which is elegant, articulate and resonant.

The production features four works including Two, a dazzling solo which seems to trap Guillem in a box of light.

The works are complimented by Michael Hulls' stunning lighting and accompanied by music from Andy Cowton, Carlos Montoya and Shirley Thompson.

Since its debut in 2005, PUSH has received four major awards: an Olivier Award, a Time Out Award, Best Choreography (Modern) at the National Dance Awards and the South Bank Show Dance Award.


"When geniuses collide, sparks fly"”
"Maliphant's choreography has never felt so emotional; Guillem has never looked lovelier. It's a pairing made in heaven"”
"As spectacular a showcase for Guillem's unique gifts as anyone could devise"”
PUSH is produced by Sadler's Wells London in collaboration with Russell Maliphant and Sylvie Guillem.
