  1. Royal Ballet - Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 19 March 2012Performance in rep until 13 April 2012

    He and his design team conjure dazzling illusions, from shrinking Alice to a marvellous Cheshire Cat, but the dancing can get squeezed to the sidelines.  

  2. DV8, Can We Talk About This

    Press Review 5Tim Walker, Telegraph, Monday 19 March 2012Performance 12 - 28 March 2012

    The positions we adopt in relation to the issue of multiculturalism – often so contorted and agonising – are brilliantly expressed in the dancers’ movements.  

  3. Men in Motion at Sadler's Wells (March)

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 18 March 2012Performance 13 - 15 March 2012

    Putrov’s account of Leonid Jacobson’s “Vestris” is a reminder of just how classy a dancer he can be, and Putrov strikes a likable note in Nacho Duato’s “Remanso”, too.  

  4. Royal Ballet - Romeo & Juliet at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 18 March 2012Performance in rep until 3 April 2012

    What really marks Hamilton out is the articulacy of her line. Here, she is all singing, expansive curves, her physical language a world away from the lunar abstraction of Wayne McGregor’s work. And if her acting can seem understated, it’s never less than natural.  

  5. Birmingham Royal Ballet's Coppélia at London Coliseum

    Press Review 4Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Sunday 18 March 2012Performance 15 - 18 March 2012

    a great joy of the evening was the playing of Michael O’Hare as Coppélius. Busily scuttling over the stage or playing to Swanilda, finding humour everywhere – and pathos and, always, truth – O’Hare illuminates every moment, every dramatic theme, with what seem… 

  6. Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company - Classic Cut

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Sunday 18 March 2012Performance 13 - 17 March 2012

    Configurations, with an onstage string quartet adding live oomph to Nyman’s score, is, by comparison, like being fed chillies on a hot beach.  

  7. DV8, Can We Talk About This

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Sunday 18 March 2012Performance 12 - 28 March 2012

    Of course you can’t dance a political discourse. But in Newson’s hands the physical provides a surprisingly subtle subtext of hesitancy, indecision, unease, that helps open up that discourse (because frankly, without it, this would seem like a rant: youR…

  9. Men in Motion at Sadler's Wells (March)

    Press Review 2Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 16 March 2012Performance 13 - 15 March 2012

    First time round, Polunin’s soar, spring and final fall to the ground were taken to foreshadow his exit from the dance world. Now, more chillingly, his shadow looming large on the backcloth has grown more potent, a projected image threatening to engulf the man himself.  

  10. Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company - Classic Cut

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 16 March 2012Performance 13 - 17 March 2012

    Configurations radiates a mysterious compelling authority, one of those works whose elements combine with complete inevitability – and complete surprise.

    Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company - Classic Cut

    Lise Smith, Friday 16 March 2012 — Performance: 13 - 17 March 2012

    It’s hard to believe that pioneering contemporary South Asian choreographer Shobana Jeyasingh and her company have been pounding stages worldwide for almost 25 years, but that’s exactly what the semi-retrosp… Continue Reading

  12. Men in Motion at Sadler's Wells (March)

    Press Review 2Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 16 March 2012Performance 13 - 15 March 2012

    Honours go to Russell Maliphant for his Two x Two, which has no purpose other than choreographic enquiry, and was admirably given by Tim Matiakis and Dana Fouras, whom I remember as a danseuse of luscious style with the Royal Ballet, and whose gift is still eloquent.

    Royal Ballet - Romeo & Juliet at the Royal Opera House

    Graham Watts, Thursday 15 March 2012 — Performance: in rep until 3 April 2012

    Alina Cojocaru & Johan Kobborg dance 'Romeo & Juliet' on the Royal Opera House stage for probably the last time. The end of an era... Continue Reading

  15. Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company - Classic Cut

    Press Review 4Clifford Bishop, Evening Standard, Thursday 15 March 2012Performance 13 - 17 March 2012

    Jeyasingh plays elegant games with the question of how an art form can feed off its history without actually cannibalising it.
