    Press Review Louise Levene, Telegraph, Sunday 23 June 2013Performance 12 - 23 June 2013

    Since when was ‘Busby Berkeley’ a term of abuse?Critics spoiled rotten by a life of perfect sightlines in the front stalls found the encircling audience distracting and carped that the sheer size of the Albert Hall made it impossible for the artists to convey emotion… 

  4. Forsythe Company - N.N.N.N / Study #3 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Sunday 23 June 2013Performance 18 - 20 June 2013

    …has the shockmeister run out of steam? It looks that way from this low-key, three-night showing from the Forsythe Company at Sadler’s Wells. A late-in-the-day change of programme didn’t bode well. And nor did the pervading absence of any sense of occasion.  

  5. Forsythe Company - N.N.N.N / Study #3 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 23 June 2013Performance 18 - 20 June 2013

    There’s no exhilaration quite like that of a Forsythe Company evening. American choreographer William Forsythe is a visionary whose work demands serious engagement, and can nevertheless still confound. But even if you leave baffled, you know you’ve witnessed … 

  6. Forsythe Company - N.N.N.N / Study #3 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Nouska Hanley, Express, Saturday 22 June 2013Performance 18 - 20 June 2013

    The work in question is complex beyond belief. The movement appears haphazard and involuntary but look a little deeper and it is clear that the opposite is true. There is intention and focus pouring out of them, nothing is accidental. It is as if they are plugged in to s…

    Josephine Leask, Thursday 20 June 2013 — Performance: 18 - 20 June 2013

    The essence of both 'N.N.N.N' & 'STUDY #3' is that of a workshop: explorative, revealing and informative. Costumes are colourful rehearsal clothes, lighting is bright and sobering.. Continue Reading

    Press Review 3Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Thursday 20 June 2013Performance 18 - 20 June 2013

    Study #3 is an extended collation and juxtaposition of attitudes and methods abstracted from three decades of his creations, and is a vexation to the spirit – or at least to my spirit, which has been following Forsythe since Urlicht in 1976 and has been alternately t…

  14. Avant Garde Dance & Early Opera Company - Monteverdi Ballets - Village Underground

    Press Review Neil Norman, The Stage, Wednesday 19 June 2013Performance 17 June 2013

    Drawing on the poised, muscle cracking movements of capoeira and tai chi and the fierce, abrupt jabs and gestures of mutated street dance, it is a densely-textured piece that provides an effective physical response to the music. If individual sequences are hard to inte… 

  15. Forsythe Company - N.N.N.N / Study #3 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 19 June 2013Performance 18 - 20 June 2013

    Study # 3 certainly provokes a typically Forsythean mix of exhilaration and alienation. It sometimes feels more like an extended study than a piece, and you certainly have to work at it; but its strange alchemy also works wonders.
