  1. Hofesh Shechter and Antony Gormley - Survivor at the Barbican

    Press Review 2John L Walters, Guardian, Friday 13 January 2012Performance 12 - 14 Jan 2012

    Despite some memorable moments, this all feels too close to Spinal Tap.  

  2. English National Ballet in Strictly Gershwin at the London Coliseum

    Press Review 3Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 13 January 2012Performance 4 - 15 January 2012

    But ENB’s dancers are willing, joyful, and Daria Klimentová, Vadim Muntagirov, Elena Glurdjidze, Zdenek Konvalina, Anais Chalendard and James Streeter make handsome appearances in the melee.  

  3. Hofesh Shechter & Antony Gormley - Survivor at the Barbican

    Press Review 3Simon Broughton, Evening Standard, Friday 13 January 2012Performance 12-14 Jan 2012

    There is a sense of struggle, oppression and human fragility in the immensity of nature. And one intensely powerful section – particularly with yesterday’s announcement of alleged British involvement in rendition and torture in Libya.  

  4. Hofesh Shechter and Antony Gormley - Survivor at the Barbican

    Press Review 2Richard Fairman, Financial Times, Friday 13 January 2012Performance 12 - 14 Jan 2012

    Given the combined talents of its two creators and the number of art forms they have called upon – music, design, dance, film, theatre – Survivor offers thin pickings for a show that lasts almost an hour and a half.  

  5. Hofesh Shechter & Antony Gormley - Survivor at the Barbican

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 13 January 2012Performance 12-14 Jan 2012

    What follows is a grand, sprawling, chaotic piece with some truly stunning sequences, a fair old bit of padding and a drizzle of pretension.  

  6. Interview with Hofesh Shechter and Antony Gormley

    Friday 13 January 2012 by Sarah Golding

    What is Survivor? Mark Monahan talks to Hofesh Shechter and Antony Gormley to find out more about the collaboration. Shechter tries to explain what it’s not, “I think it would be safe to confuse eve… Continue Reading

  7. Resolution!: The Ticket Theatre Dance/Eleanor Sikorski/A.D. Dance Company

    Press Review 3Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Thursday 12 January 2012Performance 6 Jan 2012

    Hats off to Holly Noble, who with her A?D Dance Company had the ambition to stage Fawn, a fully realised dance work for eight dancers, full of actual steps.

  9. The Royal Ballet in Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Clifford Bishop, Evening Standard, Wednesday 11 January 2012Performance 10 Jan and in rep until 31 March 2012

    Both principals were wonderfully supported. José Martín was a peacocking Mercutio and Gary Avis one of those rare Tybalts who does not handle a sword as if it were an umbrella in a high wind.  

  10. The Royal Ballet in Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 11 January 2012Performance 10 Jan and in rep until 31 March 2012

    Rojo, an experienced Juliet, moves with mercurial freshness. Her dancing is fluid, with sweeping lines and speedy, nimble footwork.

    The Royal Ballet in Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Opera House

    Graham Watts, Tuesday 10 January 2012 — Performance: 10 Jan and in rep until 31 March 2012

    It seemed an ironic coincidence for the Royal Ballet to turn out Romeo & Juliet in the week of the War Horse film premiere, since it aptly fits the description. Even more so that the Iron Lady of dance, Tam… Continue Reading

  14. Resolution! The Ticket Theatre Dance/Eleanor Sikorski/A.D. Dance Company

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 9 January 2012Performance 6 Jan 2012

    Any Resolution! bill is a mixed bag, a lucky dip. The 2012 programme launched with comedy, compulsions and a dash of ballet. It’s a good introduction to the sheer range of the season.  

  15. Resolution!: The Ticket Theatre Dance/Eleanor Sikorski/A.D. Dance Company

    Press Review 2Clifford Bishop, Evening Standard, Monday 9 January 2012Performance 6 Jan 2012

    Full marks at least to Holly Noble’s chutzpah in using Mozart’s Requiem for Fawn, performed by her own AD Dance Company. Making classical ballets outside the umbrella of a major institution must feel like pushing rocks up Everest anyway, so why not go for b…
