  1. Akram Khan - Until the Lions - Roundhouse

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Monday 18 January 2016Performance 12 - 24 January 2016

    Khan’s choreography here turns on a sixpence between furious, spinning-top energy and a shimmering, almost outer-space-like tranquility, and yields some stunning passages.

    Press Review 3Zoë Anderson, Independent, Monday 18 January 2016Performance 8 - 17 January 2016

    Carlos Acosta is terrific as all the men in Elizabeth’s life: an ardent Leicester, swaggering pirate Raleigh, clownish Duc d’Anjou and finally a deluded, obsessed Essex.

    English National Ballet - Le Corsaire - London Coliseum

    Graham Watts, Friday 15 January 2016 — Performance: 13 - 24 January 2016

    Forgive the maritime pun, but I think I should steer clear of this derring-do tale of piracy and sex slaves, since it’s no good for my sanity... Continue Reading

  4. Le Patin Libre - Vertical - Somerset House Ice Rink

    Press Review 5Katie Columbus, The Stage, Friday 15 January 2016Performance 12 - 16 January 2016

    The sound of skates scraping, spinning, and crunching, adds to a multi-sensory performance experience (we are outside, in the freezing air surrounded by the tremendous Renaissance architecture of Somerset House), and is incorporated into a percussive section as the group…

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 15 January 2016Performance 13 - 24 January 2016

  6. English National Ballet - Le Corsaire - London Coliseum

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 15 January 2016Performance 13 - 24 January 2016

    Corrales is still a junior soloist, but he danced like an international star, knitting the most challenging jumps and pirouettes into lithe, liquid, musical phrases and capturing the exoticism of his choreography without fakery or strain.

    Le Patin Libre - Vertical - Somerset House Ice Rink

    Josephine Leask, Wednesday 13 January 2016 — Performance: 12 - 16 January 2016

    They remind me of a flock of geese, their heads tilted as they check us out. They are wild, free and animated while we huddle together behind the rink barrier. Immobile and frozen. But it’s worth it. Continue Reading

  9. Resolution - The Place

    Press Review 3Zoë Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 13 January 2016Performance 9 January 2016

    Dani Harris-Walters’ choreography uses tight, fast footwork and nicely-observed behaviour – it’s funny, but it avoids drunk dance clichés.

    Press Review 4Siobhan Murphy, Time Out, Wednesday 13 January 2016Performance 12 - 24 January 2016

    It’s a thrilling piece, which shows off Khan at his off-kilter storytelling best.  

  12. Akram Khan - Until the Lions - Roundhouse

    Press Review 4Neil Norman, The Stage, Wednesday 13 January 2016Performance 12 - 24 January 2016

    Akram Khan’s latest full-length work may contain just three dancers and four musicians and last just sixty minutes, but it feels like an epic.
