After sell-out seasons around the world, including Paris, New York and Melbourne, Sadler’s Wells’ modern day classic PUSH returns to the London Coliseum.

***** "It's a pairing made in heaven"

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 elements of ballet and contemporary dance as well as capoeira, t’ai chi and martial arts, to create an evening that is "as spectacular a showcase for Sylvie Guillem's unique gifts as anyone could devise" (New York Times). 

"An evening of rare beauty, this is dance you want to watch for ever"

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