  1. Emanuel Gat Dance in Silent Ballet/Winter Voyaqe/Through the Centre at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 22 September 2008Performance 19 & 20 Sep 08

    ‘Rising choreographer Emanuel Gat trained as a conductor before turning to dance. Oddly, his background shows most clearly in Silent Ballet, a work performed virtually without music. Although there are just eight dancers on stage, the way Gat coordinates them ha… 

  2. Emanuel Gat Dance in Silent Ballet/Winter Voyaqe/Through the Centre at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Monday 22 September 2008Performance 19 & 20 Sep 08

    ‘As in the other dances, this one (Winter Voyage’) was an especially refined, telling mix of gestural filigree, energetic outbursts and vibrating stillness.’  

  3. Juliette Binoche and Akram Khan in In-i at National Theatre

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Monday 22 September 2008Performance in rep to 20 Oct 08

    ‘Khan is plainly pushing his abilities here, but the bigger stretch may be Binoche’s. She is not known for her dancing, and yet she more than holds her own alongside the muscular, contained whirlwind that Khan becomes when in motion.’ DH  

  4. The Place Prize Finals 2008 at The Place

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 22 September 2008Performance 17 - 27 Sep 08

    ‘..that night’s popular vote went to Dam Van Huynh, for his homoerotic romp Collision. Offer a tired and frustrated audience three near-naked guys in baby oil, and what do they do? They bite.’ 

  5. Juliette Binoche and Akram Khan in In-i at National Theatre

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 22 September 2008Performance in rep to 20 Oct 08

    ‘The very worst thing about in-i, apart from its pretentious title, never explained, is not the earnest but mildly clumsy kinetic efforts of La Binoche to keep up with the golden spitfire that is Khan, but the empty navel gazing of its premise.’ 

  6. Juliette Binoche and Akram Khan in In-i at National Theatre

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 22 September 2008Performance in rep to 20 Oct 08

    ‘Physically, she and Khan make an interesting match, close in height but different in style. She doesn’t have his speed or precision, but her softer movements are grounded and easy, a gentle contrast to his extremes.’

  10. Review: Juliette Binoche and Akram Khan in In-i at National Theatre

    Graham Watts, Friday 19 September 2008 — Performance: in rep to 20 Oct 08

    Performance: 18 Sept I feared that this fusion of artistic excellence, a collision of two enormous world-class performers in different art forms, might not produce a whole that equalled the anticipated sum of it… Continue Reading

  11. Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo in Programme 1 at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 19 September 2008Performance 16 Sep - 4 Oct 08

    ‘The all-male company’s trampling over ballet’s strict male-female divide makes for terrific entertainment, their specific target being a particularly Russian strain of hubris that they prick as much with their pseudonyms as with their dancing. And cert… 

  12. The Place Prize Finals 2008 at The Place

    Press Review Keith Watson, Metro, Friday 19 September 2008Performance 17 - 27 Sep 08

    ‘The Place Prize policy of using non-dance judges has backfired. It’s as if they were terrified of looking lightweight.’  

  13. The Place Prize Finals 2008 at The Place

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 19 September 2008Performance 17 - 27 Sep 08

    ‘The final round of the third biennial competition kicked off with a programme that seems weak and unexciting compared to the last two prize bills.’  

  14. Juliette Binoche and Akram Khan in In-i at National Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 19 September 2008Performance in rep to 20 Oct 08

    ‘..in letting them stage this vanity project at the National Theatre, dance lover Nicholas Hytner has done neither dance nor theatre any favours.’ 

  15. Juliette Binoche and Akram Khan in In-i at National Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 19 September 2008Performance in rep to 20 Oct 08

    ‘In the opening scenes, you can almost hear the sensual static as the pair loop and curve, like two magnets, resisting each other then snapping tight.’
