  1. Darcey Bussell – Farewell at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 18 May 2007Performance

    ‘Bussell has always looked sensational in this kind of ferocious athleticism. In Christopher Wheeldon’s Tryst, which followed, her legs seemed almost boneless as she plunged into perilous arabesques; the piece fits Bussell like a glove, and it was lovely to s… 

  2. Darcey Bussell – Farewell at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 18 May 2007Performance

    ‘Her movement speaks, the character lives; her artistry fulfils every demand of the ballet and of the theatre. As a farewell, and we sorrow at her leaving, it told us how much we are losing.’  

  3. Darcey Bussell – Farewell at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Allen Robertson, Times, Friday 18 May 2007Performance

    ‘No question about it, Bussell is leaving while still at a peak of physical perfection. This programme is a fine and a fondly felt adieu.’  

  4. Darcey Bussell – Farewell at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 18 May 2007Performance 15 - 18 May 07

    ‘Some of the interview footage is disarming, but the rehearsal material is awesome, her liquid, powerful body apparently incapable of a jarring move. The live dancing is a personal marathon as she performs snippets of Tuckett, Forsythe, Ashton and Wheeldon.’  

  5. Palm Court, Waldorf Hilton

  7. Darcey Bussell – Farewell at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Wednesday 16 May 2007Performance 15 - 18 May 07

    ‘Bussell is as crisp and as strong as ever, and her range is considerable. In William Forsythe’s In The Middle, Somewhat Elevated she’s a sleek Amazon, then all sweetness and light in Frederick Ashton’s Cinderella.’ 

  8. Darcey Bussell – Farewell at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 16 May 2007Performance 15 - 18 May 07

    ‘Her dancing shows no trace of fading technique, her jump still high, her line still bold and pure. When she unfurls a leg into a high extension, the height is the least spectacular quality.’ 

  9. NDT2 at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 16 May 2007Performance 9 - 12 May 07

    ‘Here are all the portentous signs of Euro-dance, that amalgam of the heavy-footed, the doom-eager (Martha Graham’s phrase) and the damned exasperating activities of performers locked in a routine of introspective, impenetrable activity. Why the good Dutch do… 

  10. Hofesh Shechter in Uprising/In Your Rooms at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 14 May 2007Performance 4 & 5 May 07

    ‘Uprising is a piece for seven feral-looking males, who storm about in packs as if bent on bagging an Asbo, twitch and jerk in ways that suggest factory labour, and scamper on their knuckles like menacing chimps. Schechter cleverly knits these motifs into a densely… 

  11. Hofesh Shechter in Uprising/In Your Rooms at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 14 May 2007Performance 4 & 5 May 07

    ‘The piece is named In Your Rooms and it’s probably the most important new dance-work to be created in Britain since the millennium.’ 

  12. NDT2 at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 14 May 2007Performance 9 - 12 May 07

    ‘Youth’s fearlessness and energy are at a premium in NDT’s take on contemporary dance, which is distinctively European, ballet-based but spikier and gawkier.’ 

  13. NDT2 at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 14 May 2007Performance 9 - 12 May 07

    ‘The dancers of NDT2 are hand-picked for their extreme youth and for the combination of fearlessness and hopefulness that comes with performers who still hunger, vividly, for the stage. What they perversely lack is a programme of work that really allows them to mov… 

  14. NDT2 at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 14 May 2007Performance 9 - 12 May 07

    ‘There’s a great moment in Spit when five men launch into a series of flying turns but there’s a lot of portentousness too, which seems to be the NDT way right now.’ 

  15. Jasmin Vardimon Company in Justitia at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 14 May 2007Performance 10 - 12 May 07

    ‘Justitia looks terrific – stylishly designed, vividly played. What it desperately needs is an editor.’
