  1. Nederlands Dans Theater 2 - Mixed Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 18 May 2016Performance 17 - 20 May 2016

    In an eclectic evening, Sol León and Paul Lightfoot’s Sad Case, from 1998, shows the dancers off to best effect. A sort of off-kilter cabaret set to jaunty mambo music, it sees five characters rattle through a string of playfully distorted poses.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 16 May 2016Performance 10 - 14 May 2016

    There’s enigma too in the return of Shobana Jeyasingh’s Terra Incognita, full of elegantly wrought choreography — long, taut lines topped with Indian filigree — and a sparsely percussive score that’s all unresolved anticipation.

    Press Review 3Zoë Anderson, Independent, Monday 16 May 2016Performance 10 - 14 May 2016

    Its strong, sleek dancers perform a range of styles and choreographers; this bill also shows off a new intake of dancers, already individual performers.

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Monday 16 May 2016Performance 10 - 14 May 2016

    In Rambert’s new contribution to this year’s Shakespeare400 commemorations, she has gone one step further, creating a 25-minute piece, Tomorrow, that attempts both to tell the story of Shakespeare’s masterpiece and distil its dark essence into abstract dance.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 11 May 2016Performance 10 - 14 May 2016

    What becomes far more interesting is the choreographic chemistry at work: the neat functional movement on one side interacting with the raw physical emotion on the other. It’s like watching a simultaneous translation of the play.
