    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 21 February - 3 March

    ‘Keegan-Dolan has energy, a beady eye, a flaring sense of the ridiculous, and a no less bright, if despairing, honesty.’ 

  2. Ballet Flamenco Eva Yerbabuena in El Huso de la Memoria at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Gerald Dowler, Financial Times, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 23-25 February

    ‘Yerbabuena is an earthy dancer with undulating hips and swerving waistline who danced with a profound intensity as well as technical mastery’ 

  3. Australian Dance Theatre in Held at Sadler's Wells (& UK tour)

    Mariko Harano, Thursday 22 February 2007 — Performance: 20 & 21 Feb 07

    Forget about the recent “Size Zero” debate. In Australian Dance Theatre‘s HELD, there is no such concept as a toothpick thin body being desirable. All eleven dancers – 6 male and 5 female… Continue Reading

  4. Australian Dance Theatre in Held at Sadler's Wells (& UK tour)

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Thursday 22 February 2007Performance 20 & 21 Feb 07

    ‘Essentially, Held feels like a startling and original (if rather chilly) 20-minute experiment on movement-in-light stretched out into a patchier 55-minute one. Recommendable for curiosity value, but also just a little disappointing.’ 

  5. Australian Dance Theatre in Held at Sadler's Wells (& UK tour)

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 22 February 2007Performance 20 & 21 Feb 07

    ‘Flash photography is not only permitted during Held, it is an essential part of a show in which photographer Lois Greenfield collaborates with ADT to find a dramatic new interface between motion and stillness.’

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Thursday 22 February 2007Performance 20 & 21 Feb 07

    ‘Her [Lois Greenfield] distinctive style is predicated on capturing bodies — or, sometimes, just parts of them — in their most exhilarating airborne states.’

  10. Ultima Vez in Spiegel at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Wednesday 21 February 2007Performance 9&10 Feb 07

    ‘Wim Vandekeybus is fascinated by the fragility of human life, and its obverse, the body’s resilience. Twenty years ago he was part of the Flemish New Wave that abandoned the formalities of modern dance for something more raw and instinctive.’

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 21 February 2007Performance 14-18 Feb 07

    ‘The second programme offered by American Ballet Theatre in its brief London season seemed altogether more characteristic of the troupe, and certainly more flattering a portrait of its style and gifts than the mini-debacle we saw on the first night.’ 

  13. American Ballet Theatre at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 21 February 2007Performance 14-18 Feb 07

    ‘This has been an uneven season, with too much packed into it for the dancers and the audience to see each other properly. But that is the very reason why ABT should not wait another 17 years before they return to the UK.
