  3. Morphoses - The Wheeldon Company in Programme 1: Commedia/ Leaving Songs/ Softly As I Leave You/ Bolero at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 23 October 2009Performance 21 & 22 Oct 09

    ‘It [Commedia] was a delight at its creation last year, and so it remains, not least in the writing for Leanne Benjamin and Edward Watson, their duets self-aware, loving, elegant, choreography on the emotional and physical qui-vive, admirably done.’  

  4. Morphoses - The Wheeldon Company in Programme 1: Commedia/ Leaving Songs/ Softly As I Leave You/ Bolero at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 23 October 2009Performance 21 & 22 Oct 09

    ‘The six dancers (including a standout Wendy Whelan from New York City Ballet) are fashioned as contestants; each has a number on the chest. The choreography sends them flying on a sensual and athletic pulse that sweeps all before it, as it swoops and soars out … 

  5. Morphoses - The Wheeldon Company in Programme 1: Commedia/ Leaving Songs/ Softly As I Leave You/ Bolero at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 23 October 2009Performance 21 & 22 Oct 09

    ‘The final work of the evening, however, fully restores Wheeldon’s kudos as a curator of repertory. Alexei Ratmansky’s Boléro, first created in 2001, deserves to become a classic…’

  7. African Currents at Stratford Circus

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Thursday 22 October 2009Performance Oct 09

  8. Cirkus Cirkor in Inside Out at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Thursday 22 October 2009Performance 18 - 20 Oct 09

    ‘…towards the end, there is a juggling scene both witty and skilled. It involves a sort-of-conversation between Jay Gilligan (who makes clubs, balls, do his dazzling will) and the drummer (Erik Nilsson, who has rhythmic genius, responding dazzlingly). I th… 

  9. Martin Creed in Ballet Work No. 1020 at Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Thursday 22 October 2009Performance 18 - 20 Oct 09

    ‘The result is a disorientating meditation on absence and presence, the disruption of expectation and the social norms of ballet.’  

  10. Martin Creed in Ballet Work No. 1020 at Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Thursday 22 October 2009Performance 18 - 20 Oct 09

    ‘Creed’s new work follows his runners, who sprinted through Tate Britain at regular intervals. Here, he’s working with dancers, but restricting himself to the five basic positions of classical ballet.’

    Press Review Mary Couzens, EXTRA! EXTRA!, Tuesday 20 October 2009Performance 13 - 31 Oct 09

    ‘Inside Out boasts some of the most skilled circus practitioners one could ever hope to encounter and with droll but enlivening Irya’s Playground providing musical accompaniment, you’re also, effectively getting two shows in one.’
