»You want to scare yourself a bit. You want this kind of moment when you don’t know where you are, when you don’t know if you can do something. It’s always a risk. But either you make your own choice, or you wait for someone to choose for you.«
Sylvie Guillem, New York Times, 2005

In Push the legendary French dancer Sylvie Guillem – widely regarded as the most »brilliant ballerina of her generation« (The Guardian) – is joined onstage by Russell Maliphant for the very first time. The duet combines the abilities of this extraordinary partnership and follows the hugely successful collaboration of the previous years. Since its debut, Push has received four major awards including the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Dance.
