  1. Earthfall's At Swim Two Boys

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 13 February 2012Performance 7-25 February 2012

    But the narrative structure doesn’t work hard enough. As it stands this is a touchingly nuanced duet, excellently performed. With the storytelling strengthened, it could have had a powerful capacity for shock.  

  2. 'Jealousy', The Print Room.

    Katerina Pantelides, Monday 13 February 2012 — Performance: 6 - 18 Feb 2012

  3. Russell Maliphant Company in The Rodin Project at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 12 February 2012Performance 5 Feb 2012

    As a work in evolution, however, it promises fascinating things and represents a brave leap forward on Maliphant’s part.  

  4. Royal Ballet in The Dream/Song of the Earth at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 12 February 2012Performance in rep until 5 March 2012

    Carlos Acosta has been refining his portrayal of the Messenger of Death for more than a decade now, and the result is baleful, sadly amused and utterly implacable.  

  5. Earthfall's At Swim Two Boys

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Sunday 12 February 2012Performance 7-25 February 2012

    Daniel Connor and Murilo Leite D’Imperio are terrific performers, fearless, fit (eat your heart out Mr Wet-Shirt Darcy). The live music on accordion and pipes is stirring. But the piece lacks background as well as incident.  

  6. Manuela Carrasco Company in Flamenco Festival London at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Sunday 12 February 2012Performance 8 Feb 2012

    Sturdy of body and aquiline of profile, a stern veteran of four decades on stage, Carrasco doesn’t so much perform as unleash herself.  

  7. Royal Ballet in The Dream/Song of the Earth at Royal Opera House

    Press Review 5Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 10 February 2012Performance in rep until 5 March 2012

    It was a noble evening at the ballet on Wednesday, noble and, I fear, not as commercially satisfying as it deserved.  

  8. British Dance Edition: Wayne McGregor|Random Dance/Candoco Dance Company/Hofesh Shechter Co at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 1Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 10 February 2012Performance 2 & 3 Feb 2012

    ‘As a sampling supposed to be representative of “the best of British dance” it was, to my disbelieving eye and affronted ear-drums, a monstrous display of the portentous and the gimcrack.’  

  9. Royal Ballet in The Dream/Song of the Earth at Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, The Telegraph, Seven Magazine, Friday 10 February 2012Performance in rep until 5 March 2012

    The Australian [Steven McRae] star’s superhuman mastery of time and space makes short work of Oberon’s mercurial solos, his port de bras embellishing the scherzo’s cyclonic pirouettes like a fantastical gyroscope.  

  10. Jealousy at The Print Room

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 9 February 2012Performance 6 - 18 Feb 2012

    Jealousy is perhaps too in thrall to its inspiration. But that doesn’t detract from it being a stylish, clever experiment. Taking place in a new venue for dance, the Print Room, Jealousy feels like that rare thing – a genuinely pioneering venture.  

  11. Jealousy at The Print Room

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 8 February 2012Performance 6 - 18 Feb 2012

    Daniel Hay-Gordon, in a red shirt, choreographs a stretching, yearning solo for himself as the husband.

  13. Russell Maliphant Company in The Rodin Project at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Laura Thompson, The Telegraph, Seven Magazine, Tuesday 7 February 2012Performance 5 Feb 2012

    The problem comes when the piece expands beyond the evocation of these fantastic tableaux, and the reason is very simple. Sculpture, even when it contains the infinite life of a Rodin, is a static finished product.  

  14. Russell Maliphant Company 'The Rodin Project'
