  5. Meryl Tankard - The Oracle -Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 3 June 2013Performance 31 May 2013

    He is the kind of dancer who is so finely in control of every muscle that he can actually move with complete freedom. He inhabits Stravinsky’s score, not just rhythmically but as if plugging into the deep roots of those clashing, crashing chords and their story of sa…

    Review: Meryl Tankard - The Oracle -Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre

    Sanjoy Roy, Monday 3 June 2013 — Performance: 31 May 2013

    This is a mighty, and mightily disturbing piece, even – perhaps especially – when it has finished and the cathartic applause begins...  Continue Reading

  7. Akram Khan Company - iTMOi - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Sunday 2 June 2013Performance 28 May - 1 June 2013

    The rigours of Stravinsky’s compositions, their unfailing clarity and motive power, their grandeur and suitability for dancing – as Balanchine proved – are everywhere ignored in this stupefying exercise in guess-work.

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Sunday 2 June 2013Performance 31 May 2013

    White’s movements becomes distorted and hobbled, a piercing parallel of Nijinsky’s retreat into madness. And in his final, lung-bursting, convulsive leap, we can almost believe White is channelling Nijinsky’s performances of Petrushka, a tormented sou… 

  9. Royal Ballet - Raven Girl/Symphony in C - Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 2 June 2013Performance in rep until 8 June 2013

    Raven Girl has structural issues, but moment to moment it’s still a delight. I loved Cowley’s masked and darkly glinting Raven, and Lamb’s remote, mysterious glamour is perfectly deployed in the title role.  

  10. Royal Ballet - Raven Girl/Symphony in C - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 2Louise Levene, Telegraph, Saturday 1 June 2013Performance in rep until 8 June 2013

    Sarah Lamb was sure and smiling in the opening allegro vivo; Yuhui Choe and Steven McRae sparkled in the third moment; and there was a luminous adagio from Marianela Nuñez  

  11. Akram Khan Company - iTMOi - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Jenny Gilbert, Independent, Saturday 1 June 2013Performance 28 May - 1 June 2013

    As ever, Khan’s dancers move with a wild and thrashing energy, sometimes impressively in sync. And tiny Ching-Ying Chien, as the Isaac figure, does almost dance herself to death.

    Press Review 4Jenny Gilbert, Independent, Saturday 1 June 2013Performance in rep until 8 June 2013

    Yet for all its flaws, which can be tweaked, McGregor has achieved something rare: daring in its simplicity, yet deliciously layered.

    Press Review 5Keith Watson, Metro, Friday 31 May 2013Performance 28 May - 1 June 2013

    Only the faintest traces of Rite remain – an echo in the music, dancers flailing in a circle – yet Khan captures the essence and spirit of Stravinsky’s pagan whirlwind with remarkable sensitivity. It’s as if he’s channelling the great man himself. 

  15. Akram Khan Company - iTMOi - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 31 May 2013Performance 28 May - 1 June 2013

    iTMOi – a torturous acronym for In The Mind Of Igor – is a bold but flawed attempt to do the impossible: to fathom, on stage, how Stravinsky came to create The Rite of Spring, the half-hour composition that changed music for ever.
