    Press Review 3Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 23 November 2015Performance 20 & 21 November 2015

    this is as much a staging of digital animation and computer effects (by Futurelab, the research unit of Austrian organisation Ars Electronica, as a dance piece created by Odedra and fellow choreographer Lewis Major.

  4. Royal Ballet - Monotones I and II / The Two Pigeons - Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 22 November 2015Performance 18 November - 5 December 2015

    Marianela Nuñez’s starry femininity elevates the piece to the realm of the sublime. With her unfaltering precision and long-distance gaze, she is at once glacially other-dimensional and sadly, yearningly human. It’s a finesse only a great ballerina could pull off, a… 

  5. Royal Ballet - Monotones I and II / The Two Pigeons - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 5Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 20 November 2015Performance 18 November - 5 December 2015

    .. what a joy it is to see the company serve up some real choreography. That is, dance in which dance, not design, is key; dance in which music is perfectly rendered in steps, stories are told with crystal clarity, and women are there not merely to be bent like pipe-clea…

    Review: Dog Kennel Hill Project - Choreography of An Argument Round a Table - The Place

    Josephine Leask, Friday 20 November 2015 — Performance: 17 November 2015

    A difficult but fascinating work, brilliantly performed. Like any juicy argument there are moments of real clarity when language & action flow rhythmically. At other times it is jarring, obscene & tedious... Continue Reading

  8. Royal Ballet - Monotones I and II / The Two Pigeons - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 19 November 2015Performance 18 November - 5 December 2015

    There could hardly be two ballets more diametrically opposed than those which make up the Royal’s current double bill – Monotones I and II, with its limpid restraint, and The Two Pigeons, with its whirl of colour and melodrama. Yet at the core of both is a belief in …

    Review: Royal New Zealand Ballet - A Passing Cloud - Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Graham Watts, Thursday 19 November 2015 — Performance: 17 - 21 November 2015

    The Royal New Zealand Ballet has a predilection for quirkiness, perhaps even a tendency to break established traditions. It has always been a pioneering ensemble; juggling a repertoire of classical ballets ... Continue Reading

    Inspiration and fun through dance is what the whole event was about. The Finale - when every group danced together in the arena and on stage, filling the enormous space of the venue - was another choreographic feat...  Continue Reading

    Sarah Kent, Wednesday 18 November 2015 — Performance: 16 & 17 November 2015

    Press Review 3Rachel Elderkin, The Stage, Monday 16 November 2015Performance 12 & 13 November 2015

    Africarmen may not be the easiest piece to follow, but the company give everything to Tavaziva’s complex, high energy choreography, and that alone is breathtaking to watch. 

  14. Tavaziva - Africarmen - The Place

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 16 November 2015Performance 12 & 13 November 2015

    There’s a lot of talent on this stage; they’ve shown us what they can do, now they need to show us why. 

  15. Tavaziva - Africarmen - The Place

    Press Review 2Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 16 November 2015Performance 12 & 13 November 2015

    The dancers are dynamite, but they detonate on the surface, strewing the stage with hormones and energy. It goes down a storm with its audience.
