  1. Gary Clarke Company - COAL - The Place

    Press Review 4Neil Norman, The Stage, Monday 18 April 2016Performance 15 & 16 April 2016

    The sense of mutual reliance is strong and the simple methods of spotlighting naked backs slick and shiny with sweat or using a black balloon blown up to bursting point to suggest a lung saturated with coal dust are vivid images.

    Rachel Elderkin, Monday 18 April 2016 — Performance: 15 & 16 April 2016

    Clarke's chief aim in the creation of 'COAL' was, in his own words, 'to try to help an audience feel how it was to be there'. Quite simply, he has achieved this... Continue Reading

  5. English National Ballet - She Said - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Zoë Anderson, Independent, Monday 18 April 2016Performance 13 - 16 April 2016

    Rojo’s imperious Kahlo isn’t a victim, she’s not defined by her love life and, best of all, Ochoa finds ways to show her as a creative artist.  

  6. Royal Ballet - Winter's Tale - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Monday 18 April 2016Performance 12, 13, 18, 21, 27, 28, 30 April; 21 May & 1 June 2016

    . . . so perfectly do the corps’ steps knit with the son et lumière that you could almost be watching real people going about their business – were the whole thing not so impossibly beautiful. 

  7. English National Ballet - She Said - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 18 April 2016Performance 13 - 16 April 2016

    Its first 10 minutes are extraordinary, as Tamara Rojo – a witty, vivid and ultimately tragic Kahlo – is seen first as a schoolgirl, playing merrily with carnival skeletons, and then whisked through the defining events of her lif

    English National Ballet - She Said - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Thursday 14 April 2016 — Performance: 13 - 16 April 2016

    The uniqueness of the occasion may have been a deliberate shift in the traditional gender diversity of such commissions but it was accentuated by the remarkable diversity of creative output that made it to the stage. Continue Reading

  10. English National Ballet - She Said - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Neil Norman, The Stage, Thursday 14 April 2016Performance 13 - 16 April 2016

    The first piece is the best by far. Created by the dream team of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and Nancy Meckler – whose A Streetcar Named Desire for Scottish Ballet was an unmitigated triumph – Broken Wings is the story of Mexican artists Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera. 

  11. English National Ballet - She Said - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Thursday 14 April 2016Performance 13 - 16 April 2016

    Ultimately, you can’t judge choreo-graphy on gender but it’s great to give a platform to women making quality work.

    In Paulina, Wheeldon may possibly have created one of the great characters in ballet, her dignified, tender choreography charged with the sense that this is a woman of magical powers.
