  1. Zik'r - The Mystical Path of Flamenco from India to Seville - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 3Rachel Elderkin, The Stage, Tuesday 21 June 2016Performance 14 - 18 June 2016

    Francisco Hidalgo’s solo tingles with passion as he shimmies at incredible speed. These moments of pure Flamenco are the saving grace of the show, as is Kathak dancer Ash Mukherjee, who twirls his body in a swirling storm. 

  2. English National Ballet - Swan Lake In the Round - Royal Albert Hall

    Press Review 4Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 21 June 2016Performance 1 - 12 June 2016

    Configured for the vast auditorium of the Royal Albert Hall, it features no fewer than 60 swans. When they make their first entrance, wave after wave of them, it’s awesome. To see them move and breathe as one is also profoundly touching.

  4. The McOnie Company - Jekyll & Hyde - The Old Vic

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 15 June 2016Performance 24 - 28 May 2016

    Director Drew McOnie is a musical theatre whizz, and this is his first major show for his own company. A clever choreographer of unstoppable energy, his dance is full of wit, zip and zest, and a lot of leg.

  6. Royal Ballet - Obsidian Tear | The Invitation | Within the Golden Hour - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 15 June 2016Performance 28 May - 11 June 2016

    Obsidian Tear is full of jumps and curves and classical poise, its all-male cast moving with muscular fluidity, like balletic samurai, to the swell and retreat of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s score.

    The Slovak National Folklore Ballet, Lúcnica - Barbican

    Siobhan Murphy, Wednesday 15 June 2016 — Performance: 11 June 2016

    The Barbican concert hall was packed with a largely Slovakian, hugely appreciative crowd for what was, at times, a bewilderingly energetic display of folk fantasia... Continue Reading

  8. The McOnie Company - Jekyll & Hyde - The Old Vic

    Press Review 3Neil Norman, The Stage, Wednesday 15 June 2016Performance 24 - 28 May 2016

    McOnie’s choreography is fizzing and lively, with Jerome Robbins’-style ensembles set to a musical mish-mash of styles from composer Grant Olding. 

  9. Royal Ballet - Obsidian Tear | The Invitation | Within the Golden Hour - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Neil Norman, The Stage, Wednesday 15 June 2016Performance 28 May - 11 June 2016

    Christopher Wheeldon’s Within The Golden Hour continues to delight with its melting back screen, colours bleeding into one another as the dancers form gorgeous whorls and fluid diagrams in an abstract ballet of uplifting, bucolic beauty, all culminating in an organ…

  12. The McOnie Company - Jekyll & Hyde - The Old Vic

    Press Review 3Zoë Anderson, Independent, Monday 13 June 2016Performance 24 - 28 May 2016

    McOnie swaps between two dancers, from the fast, flexible Collins to the beefier Tim Hodges, all macho strut and aggressive stance. The flip from one to the other is enjoyably staged: lightning strikes in the shower, or in the shadows. 

  13. Lucy Carter | Michael Hulls | Nitin Sawhney - No Body - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Monday 13 June 2016Performance 7 - 12 June 2016

    . . . an immersive, promenade, multi-part and multi-room dance show with installations created by some of the biggest behind-the-scenes talents in dance – but with, as its title suggests, not a single live-performing dancer. 

  14. Royal Ballet - Obsidian Tear | The Invitation | Within the Golden Hour - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Monday 13 June 2016Performance 28 May - 11 June 2016

    This is fearless and brilliant choreography, fearlessly and brilliantly danced, and Hayward’s final, faltering steps towards a damaged future are almost unbearable.
