  1. New Adventures - The Car Man - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 5Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 21 July 2015Performance 14 July - 9 August, 2015

    Classical choreographers could learn a great deal from Bourne’s attention to narrative. Programmes for his productions, as often as not, have no synopsis; the story is told, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph, by the dancers on the stage. 

  2. New Adventures - The Car Man - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Jeffery Taylor, Express, Tuesday 21 July 2015Performance 14 July - 9 August, 2015

    But the best performance of the evening is North’s extended sequence in prison and his subsequent escape… This is Bourne at his best. 

  3. New Adventures - The Car Man - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Rachel Ward, Telegraph, Tuesday 21 July 2015Performance 14 July - 9 August, 2015

    While The Car Man doesn’t quite reach the heights of Bourne’s monumental Swan Lake, it remains a masterful piece of storytelling. Coupled with Lez Brotherston’s dynamic set design, it’s unforgettable.
