  1. Royal Ballet - Ceremony Of Innocence / The Age Of Anxiety / Aeternum – Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 16 November 2014Performance 7 - 17 November 2014

    Liam Scarlett’s translation of the poem into dance is a sincere but misconceived exercise.  

  2. Jasmin Vardimon Company - Park - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 14 November 2014Performance 10 & 11 November 2014

    The premise of Jasmin Vardimon’s Park feels even more current now than when the piece was created, 10 years ago… The style is ferociously physical: the dancers throw themselves and each other about; they dive, hurtle and crash.  

  3. New Movement Collective - Please Be Seated - Southbank Centre

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 14 November 2014Performance 11 & 12 November 2014

    …the dancers themselves are equally at the mercy of their environment. The fluid, rolling momentum of their choreography is physically obstructed by the furniture on stage, across which they have to navigate a balancing, spinning, toppling path.

    Press Review Zoë Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 12 November 2014Performance 28 October - 1 November 2014

    64 dancers flood and seethe over the stage, moving as a mass or letting a head, a hand pop up against the tide. Dancers coil into angles like bats or ninjas, forming canon patterns that keep morphing.

    Everybody knows that interactive, “promenade” performances can be dodgy. Add children of all ages, as both performers and punters, and you could easily be headed for a traffic jam. The Little Witch by Marie … Continue Reading

    Press Review 3Zoë Anderson, Independent, Monday 10 November 2014Performance 7 - 17 November 2014

    Ceremony of Innocence creates a mood of loss and reflection, with a glowing performance by Marcelino Sambé. 

  15. Akram Khan & Israel Galván - Torobaka - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 9 November 2014Performance 3 - 8 November 2014

    Michael Hulls’s tightly focused lighting, the harsh beauty of the chanting – are compelling. But Torobaka lacks shape and forward impulse, and, unlike Khan’s solo work Desh, is never more than the sum of its parts.
