WORLD PREMIERE 

Inspired by Greek mythology and historic Hellenic dances, Maliphant’s choreography explores the changing forms of traditional and contemporary dance. Through Georgia Iliopoulou’s conception, Maliphant and his artistic team ravel and unravel these transformations through dance, movement, music, costumes and light.

The Thread features lighting by fellow Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist, the “choreographer of light” Michael Hulls; the explosive electronic music of Greek composer Vangelis, whose famous score for Chariots of Fire won him an Oscar in 1981; and costume design by award-winning London-based Greek fashion designer, Mary Katrantzou.
