a group of dancers covered in clay and lit by thematic lighting move hypnotically


Kairos is an installation by Russell Maliphant in collaboration with film artists Warren Du Preez & Nick Thornton Jones. Using three screens, it envelops its viewers in a rich visual landscape of sculptural bodies in motion, accompanied by an absorbing and evocative score from composer Mukul. 

Maliphant collaborated with a group of extraordinary performers, using a movement vocabulary influenced by the dance forms of popping, breaking and contemporary dance, integrated through his masterful control of flow, form and dynamics. 

'Maliphant has made something formal enough to satisfy the Académie, and sexy as (the gates of) hell' - Evening Standard
