    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 21 June 2010Performance 11 June - 18 July 2010

    ‘Toby Gough directs with the lightest of touches. If sometimes that touch seems too light, resulting in a few too many raw musical edges and fumbled choreographic ideas, the performers’ nerve and charm carry everything before them.’

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 21 June 2010Performance from 15 June 2010

  3. Brazil! Brazil! at E4 Udderbelly, Southbank Centre

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 21 June 2010Performance 11 June - 18 July 2010

    ‘Presided over by a blow-up image of Pele, this cheerful, sometimes chaotic 70 minutes of music and athletic movement is really about footie fever. “Every Brazilian,” we’re told, “knows that the ball has a soul”.’

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 18 June 2010Performance June 2010

    “It’s thrilling to watch, the dancers diving through portholes in revolving mirrors, turning the whole stage into a kind of moving target. But it seems more meaningful in Colker’s head than in the material.”

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 18 June 2010Performance 16-19 June 2010

    “Here, with the light falling on the audience as well as the dancers, we’re almost inside the choreography, feeling as well as seeing the brush of skin against skin, sensing the delicate undercurrents of abandon and trust as one dancer lays his head on the…
