  3. Royal Ballet - MacMillan Mixed Bill - Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 25 November 2012Performance 17, 21, 27, 29, 30 Nov & 5 Dec 2012

    Concerto, set to Shostakovich, is full of rewarding detail. I love Yuhui Choe’s exquisite traverse of chaînés in the first movement, her smile warming with every turn, and the self-effacing excellence of Ryoichi Hirano’s partnering of Sarah Lamb in the second.  

  4. Batsheva Ensemble - Deca Dance - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 25 November 2012Performance 19 - 21 November 2012

    Constantly evolving, this is a montage of out-takes from his best-known works. It’s a successful format, showing off the dancers’ athletic versatility and the sheer enjoyability of Naharin’s choreography.

  8. Batsheva Ensemble - Deca Dance - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 23 November 2012Performance 19 - 21 November 2012

    This stamp-collection assembly of passages from two decades of Naharin’s creations for his company is self-defeating: we know how admirable are his artists but learn nothing about his choreographic manner  

  9. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance - Linbury Studio Theatre

    Press Review 2Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 23 November 2012Performance 22 & 23 November 2012

    the eight dancers are orchestrated with an arresting musicality: visual echoes and rhythmic counterpoint are picked out across the ensemble. There’s inventive clustering and infolding in [Robert] Binet’s choreography, too. A name to watch.  

  10. Jasmin Vardimon Company - FREEDOM - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Louise Levene, Telegraph, Friday 23 November 2012Performance 12 & 13 November 2012

    there are some beguiling sequences in Jasmin Vardimon’s Freedom, but nowhere near enough to salvage an episodic, incoherent and desperately derivative 90 minutes.

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 23 November 2012Performance 22 & 23 November 2012

    Whitley’s Hertz has a mood of hushed serenity, inspired by ideas of light.
