  1. Eva Yerbabuena at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 27 March 2009Performance 23 - 25 Mar 09

    ‘What she’s got going for her, however, is an interpretative depth perhaps unmatched by anyone else in the business. At its best her strong, subtle dancing suggests and induces something akin to rapture.’ http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/ar… 

  2. Destino at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Friday 27 March 2009Performance 12 & 13 Mar 09

  3. American Ballet Theatre in Swan Lake at London Coliseum

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 27 March 2009Performance 25 - 31 Mar 09

    ‘America’s national company doesn’t have a great track record with Swan Lake, and this staging by Kevin McKenzie, ABT’s artistic director, is unlikely to change that.’  

  4. American Ballet Theatre in Swan Lake at London Coliseum

    Sarah Frater, Friday 27 March 2009 — Performance: 25 - 31 Mar 09

    ‘With Swan Lake you want absolute classical purity or a radical reinvention. ABT does neither, which leaves the dancers and audience adrift.’  Continue Reading

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 27 March 2009Performance 24 & 25 Mar 09

    ‘…let’s hear it for Henri Oguike and his glorious and glamorous troupe, for providing such a timely reminder of what an utter thrill and what giddy fun it can be to watch people move to music.’ 

  6. American Ballet Theatre 'Swan Lake' 25-31 March, London Coliseum

    American Ballet Theatre in Swan Lake at London Coliseum

    Graham Watts, Friday 27 March 2009 — Performance: 25 - 31 Mar 09

    How strange it is for this first visit of ABT to London for several years to focus so dominantly on *Swan Lake* – accounting for ten of the 14 performances in this brief tenure at the Coliseum; stranger st… Continue Reading

    Mary Kate Connolly, Friday 27 March 2009 — Performance: 24 & 25 Mar 09

  9. Eva Yerbabuena at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 24 March 2009Performance 23 - 25 Mar 09

    ‘Yerbabuena herself is glorious. Small and round, her frothy petticoats and fringed shawls convey an intense kind of femininity, as do her curving, turning hands, as if she’s Eve picking apples. Then come deep, pliant bends and much earthier sways and squa… 

  10. Siobhan Davies Dance in The Collection at Victoria Miro Gallery & Siobhan Davies Studios

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 24 March 2009Performance 24 Mar - 9 Apr 09

    ‘These are fascinating conditions in which to see Davies’ choreography, partly because the unfamiliar space throws up so many differing perspectives.’  

  11. Ballet Lorent in Designer Body at German Gymnasium & touring

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 24 March 2009Performance 18 Mar 09

    ‘What sets them apart, however, is the fact that the plinths on which they stand begin to revolve, sometimes as fast as 20 revs per minute, and that choreographer Liv Lorent is using this technology to explore a whole new gyroscopic language of dance.’

    Tanja Liedtke's Twelfth Floor at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Soutbank Centre

    Libby Costello, Tuesday 24 March 2009 — Performance: March 09

    Tanja Liedtke’s Twelfth Floor looked like a winning recipe on paper – excellent dancers and a proven choreographic track record. Before Liedtke’s untimely death she had been herald as an exciti… Continue Reading

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 23 March 2009Performance 15 Mar 09

    ‘No gimmicks, nothing flash, yet the sum total is an evening that feels inspired, in-the-moment and, in some ways, ultimate.’
