    Review: Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater - Programme A - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Wednesday 7 September 2016 — Performance: 6, 8, 14 & 17 September 2016

    Press Review 1Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 5 September 2016Performance 23 - 28 August 2016

    The SPBT dancers are well-trained, and many are impressive. Akulinin has style and panache to spare, Kovalev is brawny and unambiguously villainous; both project old-school Russian-balletic virility.

    Press Review 2Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 31 August 2016Performance 23 - 28 August 2016

    . . . the storytelling is simplistically (and pleasingly) clear, with straight-backed police officers, kindly volunteers with arms wafting like doves of peace, and a peppy press corps, looking self-satisfied as the refugees pour out their stories from twisted bodies.

    Press Review 2Neil Norman, The Stage, Wednesday 31 August 2016Performance 23 - 28 August 2016

    While there is no doubting her technical prowess – she is as comfortable en pointe as most of us are slouched in an armchair – there is a soulless narcissism about her performance that keeps the audience at arm’s length.
