  1. Estampas Porteñas in Tango Fire at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 20 September 2007Performance 18 - 29 Sep 07

    ‘Pushed close to their physical limits, the five couples of Estampas Porteñas have little time to suggest that their concerns on stage are anything but technical.’  

  2. Morphoses - The Wheeldon Company at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Nick Kimberley, Evening Standard, Thursday 20 September 2007Performance 19-23 Sep 07

    ‘Happily, After The Rain justified the very considerable hype. It is a pas de six, although the key section is a due by Wendy Whelan and Craig Hall. Wheeldon’s mix of balletic grace with quirky gestures creates an emotional narrative that evokes the unset… 

  3. Morphoses - The Wheeldon Company at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 20 September 2007Performance 19-23 Sep 07

    ‘Wheeldon has set his standards about as high as a new company could aim for. We can really look forward to what follows.’  

  4. Touch Wood at The Place

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 17 September 2007Performance 11 Sep - 6 Oct 07

    ‘But it was Colin Poole, tout nu, that got my vote. Very well, said his steady gaze, take a good long look. Am I not magnificent? Yet how little it takes for me to make you feel uneasy. And yes, watching a naked man play at being a tiger, swishing its rump, then a …

  6. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in All programmes at Sadler's Wells (& UK tour)

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 14 September 2007Performance 4 - 15 Sep 07

    ‘The tour-de-force of the new, however, comes with Twyla Tharp’s Golden Section. Driven by the music of David Byrne, this actually demands more brazen exhibitionism than anything else in AAADT’s rep.’ 7 sep  

  7. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in All programmes at Sadler's Wells (& UK tour)

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 14 September 2007Performance 4 - 15 Sep 07

    ‘Twyla Tharp’s The Golden Section is outside the usual style of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. There’s a sense that these dancers welcome the change of pace.’ 14  

  8. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in All programmes at Sadler's Wells (& UK tour)

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Friday 14 September 2007Performance 4 - 15 Sep 07

    ‘Ailey made 79 ballets; but if Revelations had been the only one, he would have his place in history.’ 

  9. English National Ballet in Angelina Ballerina at Wimbledon Theatre & touring

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 14 September 2007Performance Sep 07

    ‘The real triumph is the costuming by ENB’s house designer Wizzy Shawyer. A spirited, nine-strong cast plays Angelina and friends encased in pointy-faced masks, with padded, furry bodies in various shades and tails that sweep the floor when not being twirl… 

  10. Touch Wood at The Place

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 14 September 2007Performance 11 Sep - 6 Oct 07

    ‘Touch Wood is a clever choice as the umbrella title for a new series of more than three dozen dance works-in-progress, while The Place has stripped back its stage floor to bare wood for the sake of authenticity and as a winking gesture of good luck and encourag…

  13. English National Ballet in Angelina Ballerina at Wimbledon Theatre & touring

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Wednesday 12 September 2007Performance Sep 07

    ‘Ironically, the show (performed to taped Tchaikovsky) is at its best when it sticks closest to The Sleeping Beauty, but it is also then that the absence of anything like choreography is most sharply felt. A preening mouse getting sparkly presents from four admirer…
