    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 26 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

  2. Tavaziva Dance in Bophelo at The Place

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 26 March 2007Performance Mar 07

    ‘… more affecting than any overt political message is the simple fact of the group’s wide racial diversity and utter commitment and polish. It looks like a great little company, and will get people asking questions, even if answers are hard to come by.’

  5. Sylvie Guillem & Russell Maliphant in Push at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 23 March 2007Performance 21 - 24 Mar 07

    ‘Push is 30 minutes of pure dance, a sort of neo-neoclassicism, at once a tease of Guillem’s gymnast training and an innate story of devotion.’  

  6. English National Ballet in The Canterville Ghost at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Gerald Dowler, Financial Times, Friday 23 March 2007Performance 9 Mar 07

    ‘Pointe shoes and a few pirouettes do not a classical ballet make, and Will Tuckett’s The Canterville Ghost, created for English National Ballet and performed during a brief sojourn at Sadler’s Wells, is most certainly no ballet.’ 

  7. Royal Ballet in Onegin at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 23 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘One of the fascinations of watching Alina Cojocaru (Tatyana) and Johan Kobborg (Onegin) is the closeness of their physical rapport, the bravura of partnering that bespeaks an absolute dramatic sympathy as well as an absolute dedication in rehearsal.’ 

  8. Scottish Dance Theatre in Mixed Bill at The Place & touring

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 23 March 2007Performance 15 - 17 Mar 07

    ‘Four guest dancers, disabled in different ways, join the company for Adam Benjamin’s Angels of Incidence.. the choreo-graphy shows how other people, objects (wheelchairs, crutches) and our own bodies can both impede and enable us.’

  11. Royal Ballet in Onegin at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Tuesday 20 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘There is a wildness of spirit in Cojocaru’s dancing that perfectly suits Tatiana’  

  12. Royal Ballet in Onegin at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 20 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘The Royal Ballet’s revival of John Cranko’s Onegin sets Johan Kobborg’s bitter hero against Ivan Putrov’s ardent Lensky, both completely at home with romantic sensibility.’

    ‘Onegin has been in The Royal’s repertory for more than five years, but every time I see it I’m stuck again by the bizarre unevenness of Cranko’s choreography.’
