  5. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Ten Chi -Barbican

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 19 June 2012Performance 15 & 16 June 2012

    Ten Chi feels less evocative of its rich and rivetingly contradictory setting than a lunchtime trip to Yo Sushi.  

  6. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Der Fensterputzer - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 19 June 2012Performance 18 & 19 June 2012

    although premiered in early 1997, just months before the end of British rule, it gives little sense of an already fascinating nation on the brink of fundamental change  

  7. Zoi Dimitriou Company - You May! - The Place

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 18 June 2012Performance 13 June 2012

    The result illustrates, over the course of a very slow hour, the problematic nature of much conceptual dance. The issue of how the postmodern superego has reversed Kant’s categorical imperative and left us stranded in a half-life of compulsive consumption may be … 

  8. Richmond Ballet - Linbury Studio Theatre, ROH

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 18 June 2012Performance 16 June 2012

    This is a very likeable company, with dancers who share a fluent classical style and warm stage presence.  

  9. An intimate evening with Anna Pavlova - Linbury Studio Theatre, ROH

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 18 June 2012Performance 15 June 2012

    It’s an evening of dance, film and anecdotes, making a friendly, well-paced gala.  

  10. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch- Nur Du -Barbican Theatre

    Press Review 4Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 18 June 2012Performance 9 & 10 June 2012

    Mercy dazzles as an ageing diva quoting great lines from the movies. At the close, he performs a solo that reduces both him and many of his viewers to tears. Young and older, what a company this is! 4 

  11. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch- Como el musguito - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 5Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 18 June 2012Performance 12 & 13 June 2012

  12. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch- Ten Chi -Barbican Theatre

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 18 June 2012Performance 15 & 16 June 2012

    …for the first time in this series, Bausch feels like a tourist in her chosen city, content to see the familiar sights.  

  13. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch- Nur Du - Barbican Theatre

    Luke Jennings, Sunday 17 June 2012 — Performance: 9 & 10 June 2012

  14. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch- Nur Du -Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Sunday 17 June 2012Performance 9 & 10 June 2012

    Nur Du (Only You) does indeed home in on personal vanity, psychotherapy and celebrity culture, but with a wry smile.  

  15. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch- Viktor - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Sunday 17 June 2012Performance 6 & 7 June 2012
