    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 23 July 2014Performance 21 - 23 July 2014

    Cubanía, an evening by ballet star Carlos Acosta, has fine dancers and thin choreography, covering the gaps with plenty of energy.

    Press Review 3Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 23 July 2014Performance 21 - 23 July 2014

    Tocororo – in which bumpkin ballet boy Acosta discovers his hips through the love of feisty latina chica Veronica Corveas and so is accepted into the gang of strutty kingpin Alexander Verona – is as hokey as can be.

    Press Review 3Rachel Ward, Telegraph, Wednesday 16 July 2014Performance 8 - 27 July 2014

    The show brings together over 38 artists, including singers, musicians and dancers – all recruited from the favelas rather than dance schools – and takes us loosely through the evolution of Brazilian social dance with such wide-eyed enthusiasm that it’s har…

  12. Brasil Brasileiro - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Liz Hoggard, Standard, Monday 14 July 2014Performance 8 - 27 July 2014

    Many of the dancers were recruited from the favelas rather than formal dance school, and this gives them a raw energy, as they switch from hyper-sexy to cartoon-tender in a second. Forget showgirls in feathers, this is sensuality rather than bootylicious cliché.

    Press Review 2Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 14 July 2014Performance 2 - 5 July 2014

    What’s so enjoyable about Mad Women is not just the dryness of its wit and its deft U-turns of fantasy, but also that it elicits such alert, intelligent performances from its cast.

    …at the heart of the exhibition are Rainer’s dances, four of which are being performed throughout its run. The most familiar is Trio A (1966), a 10-minute sequence of seemingly disconnected moves – from simple arm-swings to whimsically asymmetric footwo… 

  15. Paul White - Anatomy of an Afternoon - Purcell Room

    Press Review 5Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 14 July 2014Performance 10 & 11 July 2014

    We discover [Paul] White gripped by a narcoleptic torpor, from which he gradually rouses himself, assuming a series of quasi-animal forms – now spiderish, now ape-like – before driving himself to sweat-drenched exhaustion through a series of raw, self-exploratory rituals.
