  1. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Two Cigarettes in the Dark

    Press Review 4Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 15 February 2013Performance 14 - 17 February 2013

    [Bausch] springs from a long surrealist tradition and the images that fill Two Cigarettes in the Dark (its title taken from the concluding song, rather than the amount of cigarettes smoked, which is 15) are worthy of Magritte or Man Ray: a man standing drinking tea on …

    Press Review Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 15 February 2013Performance 14 - 17 February 2013

    After the first act’s initial angst has died down, the piece lightens up, and is studded with tiny delights:

    Press Review 5Louise Levene, Telegraph, Friday 15 February 2013Performance 12, 13, 15, 21, 23 February 2013

    Armand – ardent, proud and impetuous – is an ideal role for the handsome young Polunin, whose innate blend of grandeur and innocence brings the blandest hero to life and extracts emotional truth from the thinnest story.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 15 February 2013Performance 14 - 17 February 2013

    Tedium is a dangerous theme for the theatre, and while some of the imagery and all of the performances are as good as anything that’s come out of Wuppertal, Two Cigarettes is as alienating as it is enthralling.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 13 February 2013Performance 12, 13, 15, 21, 23 February 2013

    A fantastic dancer, Polunin is really developing as a dramatic artist, but you’re always slightly aware that it’s him, “performing”… With Rojo, her character spreads from deep in her bones to the end of a flickering eyelash.  

  10. Tango Fire - Flames of Desire 2013 - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Telegraph, Wednesday 13 February 2013Performance 30 Jan - 24 Feb 2013

    Melody Celatti and Gonzalo Cuello … conjure exactly the right blend of sensuality and spatial awareness in their Tango Romantico, their lower legs swivelling in and out of ganchos and intrusiones with the speed and certainty of a lace-maker’s bobbins.

    a performance of such dramatic intensity that the audience sat in silence, as if afraid to breathe.  

  13. Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment - Henri Oguike - Southbank Centre

    Press Review 4Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Tuesday 12 February 2013Performance 8 & 9 February 2013

    The dancing is crammed with dynamic imagery: a froggy squat opens the piece; flapping hands variously suggest fluttering wings, shaking leaves or a freezing wind. There are perilous leans, with arms spiralling like tendrils; weary wanderings, punches, heaving throws, s…
