  1. Clod Ensemble - Zero - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 5 June 2013Performance 4 & 5 June 2013

    As a concept, Zero is vivid with possibilities, but, frustratingly, Willson’s choreography brings it to only intermittent life.

    ATMA/Mayuri Boonham - Erhebung - Rich Mix

    Lise Smith, Wednesday 5 June 2013 — Performance: 31 May - 2 June 2013

    'Erbhebung' is a quietly bold work: introspective and poetic, it makes its own rather unique mark on the landscape of modern Indian dance... Continue Reading

    Birthday Rites - Chisenhale Dance Space

    Donald Hutera, Tuesday 4 June 2013 — Performance: 29 May 2013

    I wonder if Mercier’s literally punchy approach to 'Rite' could be the most flat-out original & daring of all the versions lately staged in London... Continue Reading

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

    Press Review 4Gerald Dowler, Telegraph, Tuesday 4 June 2013Performance 31 May 2013

    Tankard focuses as much on the smallest of gestures as on great leaps and twists; shudders of the body, the momentary lifting of a foot, the agonised spasms of fingers count for as much as White’s bursts of violent physicality. It is a brilliant concept, superbly executed  

  5. Wilkie Branson & Sally Cookson - Varmints - Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Tuesday 4 June 2013Performance 17 & 18 May 2013

    There is much to enjoy and admire here. The cast are genuinely engaging and perform with real verve.

  9. 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…

    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

  11. 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.  

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

    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… 

  13. 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.  

  14. 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  

  15. 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.
