    Compagnie du Hanneton/James Thiérrée - Tabac Rouge - Sadler's Wells

    Josephine Leask, Wednesday 26 March 2014 — Performance: 25 - 29 March 2014

    Visually it is an imaginative production which showcases a strong, multiskilled group of performers, but I find it alienating, cold and lacking in emotional content... Continue Reading

  3. Compagnie du Hanneton /James Thiérrée — Tabac Rouge

    Press Review 3Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Wednesday 26 March 2014Performance 25 - 29 March 2014

    Eye-catching? Indisputably, but the appeal lies less in its ideas or emotional impact and more in the weird narcotic beauty and Alice in Wonderland wittiness.  

  4. Compagnie du Hanneton/James Thiérrée - Tabac Rouge - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Wednesday 26 March 2014Performance 25 - 29 March 2014

    Tabac Rouge serves up its splinters of possible narrative in a way that feels less teasing, tantalising and enticing than muddled and wilfully baffling.

  9. Kings of the Dance - London Coliseum

    Press Review 2Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 23 March 2014Performance 19 - 22 March 2014

    On the plus side are the “kings” themselves: five stylish and very likable performers. On the minus side, and it’s a big minus, is the choreography.

    Kings of the Dance - London Coliseum

    Graham Watts, Friday 21 March 2014 — Performance: 19 - 22 March 2014

    A mighty handful should pack a powerful punch and there were certainly moments in this mixed programme when these five kings of the dance delivered the kind of impact that one should expect from a selection of t… Continue Reading

  12. Impact Dance Escape

    Friday 21 March 2014 by Lise Smith 1 Comment

  13. Kings of the Dance - London Coliseum

    Press Review 2Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 20 March 2014Performance 19 - 22 March 2014

    There may be sufficient talent and testosterone on stage for this all-star ensemble to justify crowning themselves kings of their profession. But what is lacking at the court of Vasiliev, Bolle et al, are the virtues of taste and discrimination – and some properly fi… 

  14. Kings of the Dance - London Coliseum

    Press Review 2Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Thursday 20 March 2014Performance 19 - 22 March 2014

    The Kings of the Dance circus, installed in cheese-paring manner this week at the Coliseum – no orchestra; design largely pauperish; its first two “acts” lasting a combined 37 minutes but with all-too-generous intervals – is a tedious example, and redeemed from… 

  15. Kings of the Dance - London Coliseum

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Thursday 20 March 2014Performance 19 - 22 March 2014

    Kings of the Dance, a gala format celebration of men’s dancing, makes a very mixed bag. It has a starry line-up, including ex-Bolshoi wonder Ivan Vasiliev as its first among equals. Unfortunately, the repertory is less than regal.
