  1. Royal Ballet - Woolf Works - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 5Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 12 May 2015Performance 11, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 23 26 May 2015

    Woolf Works is not a perfect ballet… But in the depth and the scope of its ambitions, and in its haunting meditations on memory, madness and time, it takes both McGregor – and the concept of the three-act ballet – to a brave and entirely exhilarating new place.

    Press Review 2Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 12 May 2015Performance 11, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 23 26 May 2015

    Throughout Monday’s opening night, the stellar cast – which also included Natalia Osipova as Orlando and Steven McRae as someone-or-other – danced with uniform brilliance.

    Press Review 2Hanna Weibye, The Arts Desk, Tuesday 12 May 2015Performance 11, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 23 26 May 2015

    Reducing Steven McRae and Natalia Osipova to their bendiness is a criminal waste: what about their musical intelligence, their dramatic power, to say nothing of their elite training in the absurdly difficult art form of classical ballet? 

  6. Javier De Frutos - Everyman - National Theatre

    Press Review 4Michael Arditti, Express, Tuesday 12 May 2015Performance 12 May - 30 August, 2015

    The scale of Norris’ staging, exuberance of Javier de Frutos’s choreography, excellence of Ejiofor’s performance and, above all, exhilaration of Duffy’s text make this a production to relish. 

  7. Northern Ballet - Little Monsters/The Architect/Perpetuum Mobile/A Northern Trilogy/Angels in the Architecture - Linbury Studio Theatre

    Press Review 4Jeffery Taylor, Express, Tuesday 12 May 2015Performance 12 - 14 May, 2015

    The company as a whole displays a truly satisfying coherence as a group, a belief in what they are doing and a desire to please. Their classical training is clean and precise and their delight in their chosen profession irresistible. Simply, a joy to watch. 

  8. Rosie Kay Dance Company - 5 Soldiers - The Rifles Club

    Press Review Ismene Brown, The Spectator, Tuesday 12 May 2015Performance 6 & 7 May 2015

    If you were told that these were actually five British soldiers reliving daily experiences, you would at first believe it, so brutishly physical is their long opening sequence of quick marches and repetitious exercises through imagined enemy territory.
