    Press Review 3Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 15 May 2015Performance 12 - 14 May, 2015

    Jonathan Watkins’ A Northern Trilogy is crowd-pleasing but intelligent, gently illustrating three comic monologues by Stanley Holloway (about Yorkshire pudding, a drunken soldier and a boy eaten by a lion) while stopping nicely short of literalism.

  12. Rambert - Frames / Four Elements / Dark Arteries - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Hanna Weibye, The Arts Desk, Friday 15 May 2015Performance 12 - 16 May 2015

    Whitley, whose Frames opened the evening, is a pretty successful young choreographer… There’s no doubt he can come up with exciting movement, but there’s also no doubt he needs refining before he really makes the big time. 

  13. Rambert - Frames / Four Elements / Dark Arteries - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Sarah Frater, The Stage, Thursday 14 May 2015Performance 12 - 16 May 2015

    With the revival of Lucinda Child’s Four Elements, you wonder why the American dance maker is so little seen in the UK. Made for Rambert in 1990, Elements is a mesmerising piece of modern classicism that evokes water, earth, air and fire without conspicuously portraying them. 

  14. Rambert - Frames / Four Elements / Dark Arteries - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 13 May 2015Performance 12 - 16 May 2015

    It’s only in the long middle section evoking the miners’ embattled history that Dark Arteries realises its potential – and does so magnificently, in churning, seething ensembles of dance, shot through with heart-racingly combative virtuosity. 

  15. Rambert - Frames / Four Elements / Dark Arteries - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 13 May 2015Performance 12 - 16 May 2015

    Where Dark Arteries aims for imposing and misses, Alexander Whitley’s Frames just looks aimless.
