Malgorzata Dzierzon Dance
RASPUTIN 11

Rasputin 11 is inspired by the Russian mystic, who befriended the family of Tsar Nicholas II, gaining considerable influence in the late Imperial Russia. I took the spatial sculptures of Esther Ferrer as starting point for the visual concept in order to create the spiderweb- like environment for the dancers to explore.

The work was made in 11 hours for 11 dancers, and is just over 11 minutes long.

Presented by Opera Wrocławska in partnership with Semperoper Dresden, Semperoper Ballett as part of Open Door Programme, June 30th, 2018

FLIGHT

 

‘Dzierzon crafts a humane and poignant depiction of migration. She is a persuasive dance maker with a gift for collaboration.’

Phillippa Newis, Bachtrack on Flight

 

 

‘The world, the notion of “home”, is constantly mercurial here.’

Mark Monahan, The Telegraph on Flight

 

 

'Technically brilliant and with an honest emotional core this was my favourite piece of the night and a great opener.'

Eric Page, Gscene

 

‘Flight is an excellent piece that I would happily see again.’

David Mead, SeeingDance

 

‘Dzierzon has a sense of atmosphere and makes the most of her cast’s rich sense of movement (…) I’m interested to see where she goes next.’

Zoë Anderson, Dancing Times on Flight

Created for Rambert, Flight is inspired by stories, images, conversations and some of my own experiences of travel and migration. Set within shifting, monumental environments, the dancers find themselves in worlds that are both strange and familiar.

Flight premiered at the Lowry, Salford in September 2016 and is part of Rambert’s spring tour showing at Theatre Royal Brighton March 1-4 and at Theatre Royal Nottingham March 28-30, 2017.
