  1. Cullberg Ballet - Plateau Effect - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Katherine Colombus, The Stage, Monday 17 November 2014Performance 13 & 14 November, 2014

    There are a few flashes of promise – dancers with a heartbeat too strong for their chest, some fast, whipping, flicking solos at the end – but little in between to tie this together. 

  2. Cullberg Ballet - Plateau Effect - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Lyndsey Winship, Standard, Monday 17 November 2014Performance 13 & 14 November, 2014

    The opening is strong: hung vertically the fabric looks like sand dunes, or a curtain of quicksand sucking in its prey, and the dancers melt into it.

    Review: New Movement Collective - Please Be Seated - Southbank Centre

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Monday 17 November 2014— Performance: 11 & 12 November 2014

    The work could have been read as privileging form over heart, function over humanity, but this seemed to be partially the point... Continue Reading

    Review: Cullberg Ballet - Plateau Effect - Sadler's Wells

    Siobhan Murphy, Monday 17 November 2014— Performance: 13 & 14 November, 2014

    The dancers move into a thrillingly odd display of rhythmic jerking & shuddering that resembles an achingly hip zombie rave. I could have watched them all night; it felt so joyfully liberating I wanted to join in. Continue Reading

  5. 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.  

  6. 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.  

  7. 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.

    In spite of its minimalistic setting and pure movement focus Ina Christina Johannessen's duet manages to shock and disturb. Continue Reading

    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.

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Tuesday 11 November 2014— Performance: 31 October & 1 November 2014

    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
