    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 17 June 2015Performance 16 - 18 June 2015

    Philippe Decouflé is a showman, creating his works out of a freewheeling jumble of circus, magic, song and dance, and surreal theatrical illusion. Yet he is also a lifelong admirer of Pina Bausch, and in his latest production he pays tribute to her 1978 classic, Kontakthof.

  12. The 7 Fingers - Traces - The Peacock

    Press Review 3Neil Norman, The Stage, Monday 15 June 2015Performance 9 June - 12 July 2015

    Good circus acts are now so common that it takes something really special to make them stand out from the crowd. The girl and six boys of Les Sept Doigts de la Main are all individually skilled as well as an effective ensemble but their concept is underwhelming.
