  9. New Adventures - Lord of the Flies - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Jeffery Taylor, Express, Sunday 12 October 2014Performance 8 - 11 October 2014

    Brutal, charming, deranged yet ultimately full of hope, director Matthew Bourne and choreographer Scott ambler rub our noses into the rotten side of human nature.  

  10. Theo Clinkard - Ordinary Courage/Accumulation - Laban Theatre

    Press Review 4Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 12 October 2014Performance 7 October 2014

    ‘Ordinary Courage’ is a nuanced and powerful examination of loss, inspired by the death of Clinkard’s mother in 2010. 

  11. New Adventures - Lord of the Flies - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 10 October 2014Performance 8 - 11 October 2014

    Matthew Bourne has always been clear that his adaptation of Lord of the Flies is principally about the kids… What appears on stage, however, explodes any preconceptions of a dutiful community project.

  14. Birmingham Royal Ballet - Beauty and the Beast/Shadows of War

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Thursday 9 October 2014Performance 8 October (coming to Sadler's Wells, 17 & 18 Oct)

    The result is as brazenly theatrical as Helpmann himself was, a lively, oddball study in life, death, envy and crowd-mentality that’s as much dance-theatre as ballet. 

  15. Royal Ballet - Manon - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Wednesday 8 October 2014Performance In rep 26 September - 1 November 2014

    Day after day, every single dancer on stage from the humblest beggar to the leading lady manages to project character and mould meaning.
