    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 19 October 2007Performance 17-20 Oct 07

    ‘His work overall shows no desire to ingratiate itself with its audience, some of whom might find it akin to watching paint dry. But there are compensations. The dancers’ controlled energy can be remarkable.’  

  5. Shen Wei Dance Arts in Connect Transfer at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 19 October 2007Performance 17-20 Oct 07

    ‘Shen Wei is a master of detail. However full-bodied his phrases may be, it is in the final, decisive tilt of the chin, the studied flourish of a hand, the tiny shift of a hip that the clinching power of his language lies.’
