  1. Rambert Dance Company in Roses / Monolith / Cardoon Club at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 27 May 2011Performance 24 - 28 May 2011

    “Roses is perfect in shape, dance and music in radiant accord, sitting serenely at the centre of this triple bill.”  

  2. Bern:Ballett in Clara / Howl at Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 27 May 2011Performance 25 - 28 May 2011

    “there’s a clever sequence for the seven-strong corps whose shape and pace suggests a bodily expression of Clara’s piano playing. However, large chunks of the ballet lack focus,”  

  3. Rambert Dance Company in Roses / Monolith / Cardoon Club at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 27 May 2011Performance 24 - 28 May 2011

    “This is very much the style of Roses, which hints at both disappointed and happy love. It is also a sharp test for the Rambert dancers.”

    Press Review Cath Clarke, Guardian, Friday 27 May 2011Performance Release date: 27 May 2011

    “this made-for-TV production pales next to Wim Wenders’s recent 3D Pina”  

  5. Bern:Ballett in Clara / Howl at Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 27 May 2011Performance 25 - 28 May 2011

    “Marston strives for detail, intimacy and truth in the dancers’ dazzled glances and questing hands. Admirable, too, are her attempts to choreograph conflicted emotions”

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 27 May 2011Performance 24 - 28 May 2011

    “But Taylor isn’t your average choreographer. Even where Wagner’s music suspends into thin air, he can still hear the lilt of a dance pulse, driving the movement forward with surprising speed.”
