    Press Review 4Rachel Ward, Telegraph, Thursday 20 March 2014Performance 19 - 22 March 2014

    The show, which has been running since 2006, has just had its UK debut at the London Coliseum – and it didn’t disappoint in terms of dynamic talent and breathtaking bravura.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Thursday 20 March 2014Performance 19 - 22 March 2014

    Ultimately, the dancers are stronger than some of the choreography, but there’s plenty of talent on this stage.

    Press Review Katie Columbus, The Stage, Thursday 20 March 2014Performance 19 - 22 March 2014

    Labyrinth Of Solitude and KO’D will leaving you reeling at the pure artistry, explosive grace and expressive power in this dazzling showcase of male ballet dancers.

    Press Review Roslyn Sulcas, New York Times, Thursday 20 March 2014Performance 19 - 22 March 2014

    Watching them perform was a bit like having Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych all hitting a tennis ball around, separately and together, occasionally displaying a great shot, but never actually playing a match.

    “You have to be strong, supple, steady. You need to think of not having bones. Your body has to adopt a soft texture but your muscles are engaged, like water but with staccato strength,” says Lauren Yalango.. Continue Reading

  6. Phoenix Dance - Mixed Bill - Watford Palace Theatre

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 19 March 2014Performance 7 May

    One lone figure (Phil Sanger) journeys through it, and the sense of his combined displacement and courage are conveyed in a tenderly repeated motif where Sanger pauses and lift his hand in questioning invocation to the sky.

    Graham Watts, Monday 17 March 2014 — Performance: 11 - 13 March 2014

    Outside it may have been the cold concrete and tarmac of North London but inside Sadler’s Wells once again we experienced the collective fantasy of a warm night in Andalucía...  Continue Reading

  9. Olwen Fouéré - Riverrun - The Shed

    Press Review 4 Kate Kellaway, Observer, Sunday 16 March 2014Performance 11 - 22 March

    The evening’s odd power is in the contrast between Fouéré‘s clarity and the text’s obscurity. She is an evangelical interpreter: she convinces not only that she understands minutely but that with her dancer’s intensity, swimmer’s arms an…

  12. Protein - Border Tales - The Place

    Press Review Sarah Wilkinson, artsdesk, Friday 14 March 2014Performance 26 February - 15 March 2014

    [Silvestrini] woefully underuses the experiences of his international company (experience which fed fascinatingly into the post-show discussion on Wednesday night) and for the most part pitches the work on one tediously derisive level.  

  13. Olwen Fouéré - Riverrun - The Shed

    Press Review 4, Metro, Friday 14 March 2014Performance 11 - 22 March

    …Fouéré is not trying to demystify this most audaciously challenging of texts; rather she is inviting you to dive in, flow with its current and see where that takes you.It’s a brave theatrical experiment, much in the spirit of Joyce, and Fouéré’s vivid st…

    Russian Ballet Icons Gala - London Coliseum

    Graham Watts, Thursday 13 March 2014 — Performance: 9 March 2014

    This may not have been a coherent story of the Russian Ballet but it certainly represented excellent value-for-money in an entertaining night delivered by an outstanding roster of international ballet stars. Continue Reading

  15. Pilobolus - Shadowlands - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 13 March 2014Performance 11 - 30 March

    What’s charming about Pilobolus is how low-tech the company has remained. When six dancers are transformed into the silhouette of a giant seahorse, there’s no digital trickery involved, only the ingenious placing of torsos and limbs, outlined against a larg…
