Professional dancer and former Swindon Dance student, Carys Staton is preparing to return to Swindon next week as part of the highly anticipated Conceal | Reveal – a collaboration between Olivier award-winning choreographer Russell Maliphant and lighting designer Michael Hulls.
Carys, who began her training at Swindon Dance before continuing her studies at the Rambert School in London, will perform the iconic trio Broken Fall, alongside Adam Kirkham and Nathan Young and accompanied by music from Barry Adamson. The stunning piece was originally performed in 2003 by Sylvie Guillem and the BalletBoyz, Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, and was awarded an Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production in 2004.
Carys has toured nationally and internationally with the Russell Maliphant Company since graduating from Rambert in 2011 and has appeared in commercial projects including a 2013 advert for Lexus EU, ITV’s An Audience with Beyonce, HungerTV’s Young Blood and Erebus, a film adaptation of Russell Maliphant’s The Rodin Project for The Space.
Conceal | Reveal will also see the return to dance of former Royal Ballet dancer Dana Fouras, after over 10 years, who performs a new solo created especially for the occasion by Maliphant. The new solo piece features a commissioned score by cutting edge composer Mukul and costume by iconic fashion designer Stevie Stewart.
Carys will perform in Conceal | Reveal at the Wyvern Theatre on Tuesday 3 November. For more information and to book tickets, visit www.swindontheatres.co.uk or call Ticket Office on 01793 524481.
