  1. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch- Como el musguito - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Sunday 17 June 2012Performance 12 & 13 June 2012

    Tellingly, the piece that premiered the month Bausch died of cancer, based on the Chilean city of Santiago, has the most dance and the most joy of the three productions in the series so far, despite the shadow of Chile’s past hovering over it in oblique reference…

    Graham Watts, Sunday 17 June 2012 — Performance: 15 & 16 June 2012

    "...it really doesn’t matter whether its blossom or snow falling in the Barbican Theatre, since the ideas of Pina Bausch seem sure to bloom and grow forever." Continue Reading

    Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Como el musguito - Sadler's Wells

    Lise Smith, Wednesday 13 June 2012 — Performance: 12 & 13 June 2012

    Como el musguito... reminds us of how funny, unpredictable, sweetly silly and downright stunning Bausch’s works could also be.  Continue Reading

  4. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Como el Musguito - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 13 June 2012Performance 12 & 13 June 2012

    Bausch created this work, in part, to celebrate the bodies of the younger dancers coming into her company (although Dominique Mercy, who was with Bausch from the 1970s, proves in his own graceful, puckish solo that age doesn’t wither a great performer).

    Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Nur Du - Barbican Theatre

    Misa Brzezicki, Tuesday 12 June 2012 — Performance: 9 & 10 June 2012

    Nur Du was overlong, but contained moments so sharp and strange, so idiosyncratic, that weariness was dispelled and the audience were provoked, astounded and moved by the world presented. Continue Reading

  10. Royal Ballet - The Prince of The Pagodas at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 11 June 2012Performance 2, 6, 9, 13, 18, 21, 27, 29 JUNE 2012

    MacMillan was not the first choreographer to be lured by Britten’s shimmering score. An uninvolving scenario, however, has dogged every production to date, and the current reworking by Mason and Deborah MacMillan, the choreographer’s widow, fails to address t… 

  11. Royal Ballet - The Prince of the Pagodas - Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 11 June 2012Performance 2, 6, 9, 13, 18, 21, 27, 29 June 2012

    Somebody had to do it, sometime. A two-and-a-half-hour score by Britain’s greatest composer is not to be consigned to the scrap heap without a fair trial, and nor is the final big ballet of Britain’s second-greatest choreographer.  

  12. Colin, Simon and I - Because We Care - The Place

    Press Review 2Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 11 June 2012Performance 8 & 9 June 2012

    Dancers Colin Poole and Simon Ellis, who make up the company Colin, Simon & I, spend Because We Care testing each other. They shuffle into each other’s personal space, pushing through rivalries and power struggles. Poole and Ellis focus on the clashes, but don’…

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 11 June 2012Performance 9 & 10 June 2012

    The second half is dominated by solos, with more pure dance. It’s less striking than the physical theatre scenes, where dancers wrestle with props, themselves and each other.

    Colin, Simon and I - Because We Care

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Monday 11 June 2012 — Performance: 8 & 9 June 2012

    Dance artists Simon Ellis and Colin Poole obviously have a very rich relationship. So intense is their connection that they have formed a collaboration, the entire purpose of which seems to be exploring this union... Continue Reading

  15. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch- Viktor - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 10 June 2012Performance 6 & 7 June 2012

    Viktor is a transitional piece, and while still mordant – the set, a vast earthwork rampart, references Rome’s excavated past but also the grave – is less existentially bleak than much of her earlier work.
