  1. Paco Peña Flamenco Dance Company – Flamencura - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 24 June 2015Performance 20 - 28 June 2015

  6. Project O - Swagga - The Yard

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 23 June 2015Performance 16 - 20 June 2015

    As political provocation, Swagga scores, but as theatre it could use a tighter focus. For all the you-go-girl affirmation, Cooper and Hyatt remain enigmatic figures. I’d have liked to get to know them better.

    Press Review Stuart Forward, EQView, Friday 19 June 2015Performance 16 - 20 June 2015

    As SWAGGA challenges expectations of dance, performance and art when it comes to body type, it is a refreshing departure from the prescribed boundaries of conventional dance and an exciting inlay into dance for all.

    Lise Smith, Thursday 18 June 2015 — Performance: 16 - 18 June 2015

    Decouflé's works are hard to classify, straddling the boundaries between dance, cabaret, comedy and contemporary theatre with a healthy dash of stage artifice and visual trickery.  Continue Reading

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 17 June 2015Performance 16 - 18 June 2015

    Philippe Decouflé is a showman, creating his works out of a freewheeling jumble of circus, magic, song and dance, and surreal theatrical illusion. Yet he is also a lifelong admirer of Pina Bausch, and in his latest production he pays tribute to her 1978 classic, Kontakthof.
