EncoreEast and Russell Maliphant Dance Company

The Making of Focus

Watch the documentary here:

EncoreEast worked with RMDC dancers Alethia Antonia and Edd Arnold on a performance project inspired by Russell Maliphant’s production, ‘Silent Lines’. The result was ‘Focus’ performed live and livestreamed at DanceEast on 3rd November

The process was exhilarating, challenging and inspiring. Each member of EncoreEast has developed as a dancer, gentle guided by Edd and Alethia’s intuitive teaching of Russell’s practice.

Running through the project is research into dance with older bodies and into the way EncoreEast is evolving its organisational model. We are blurring boundaries and finding connections between professional and community dancers, age groups, practice and organisation.
