  1. CoisCéim Dance Theatre in Knots

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 16 November 2007Performance on tour & coming to Southbank Centre in Dec 07

    ‘Created in 2005, Knots uses the pop psychologist R. D. Laing’s book of the same name as the springboard for a collage of text and movement that plays like a highly stylised but entirely accessible group therapy session.’  

  2. Momix in Greatest Hits at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 16 November 2007Performance 6-24 Nov 07

    ‘Choreographer Moses Pendleton tangles dancers into optical illusions, like human versions of those pictures that show a vase or two faces. That’s the skill and the drawback of this show – like those pictures, it’s clever but limited.’

    Press Review Gerald Dowler, Financial Times, Friday 16 November 2007Performance 6-24 Nov 07

    ‘Moses Pendleton, the company’s artistic director, is undoubtedly a talented man, manipulating the choreographed acrobatics of his 10 doughty performers like a master puppeteer, and he certainly has an eye for effect – his use of light as an integral… 

  4. Honour Bound at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Friday 16 November 2007Performance 13 - 17 Nov 07

    ‘It is like being hit in the stomach: watching it disorients you and makes you feel as though layers of your skin are being stripped from your body, leaving you raw and vulnerable – like the inmates of Guantánamo.’

    ‘Hopping, skittering, leaping, cantering or pawing the ground, interweaving in complex patterns, the dancers are almost always on the go – one surge following another, filling the stage in a thrilling flux. I found nary a dull moment.’

    ‘With a great sense of fun, skill and illusion Momix thrills fans in many countries for its inventive and beautiful non-demanding family friendy shows.’ 

  12. Michael Clark Company in Stravinsky Project at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 12 November 2007Performance 31 Oct-10 Nov 07

    ‘…seeing the three pieces together and in order, it’s possible to draw the strands into a single narrative: one of youthful discovery, ricocheting confusion and final acceptance. The parallels with Clark’s journey are unavoidable.’ 

  13. Michael Clark Company in Stravinsky Project at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 12 November 2007Performance 31 Oct-10 Nov 07

    ‘He gives his all to the vibrant, sensuous, criss-crossing of the 12 bodies on stage, for once inspired, rather than oppressed, by the original work’s pattern-making. As a dancer Clark was gifted with a flawless instinct for line. He’s now poured it all… 

  14. Momix in Greatest Hits at Peacock Theatre

    Graham Watts, Friday 9 November 2007 — Performance: 6-24 Nov 07
