  1. LA Dance Project - Mixed Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 27 June 2016Performance 24 & 25 June 2016

    Hearts and Arrows proliferates, gorgeously, with staggered formations, braided currents, counterpoint and canon. It features superb performances, and comes close to being an excellent piece. 

  2. LA Dance Project - Mixed Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 27 June 2016Performance 24 & 25 June 2016

    If Millepied’s choreography was an element it would be air, best demonstrated in the short piece Hearts & Arrows, danced to a Philip Glass string quartet. The dancers sweep through phrases with spritely leaps; contemporary dance with ballet’s poise and lightness. 

  3. LA Dance Project - Mixed Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Neil Norman, The Stage, Monday 27 June 2016Performance 24 & 25 June 2016

    In spite of an agitated liveliness in the movement, neither of these pieces sings with originality. Hearts and Arrows flirts with high-school cheerleading as girls are tossed into the air to the repetitive surge of Philip Glass’ String Quartet No 3 (Mishima)

    In other circumstances, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s 'Harbor Me' would have seemed a rather unremarkable piece from the inventive Belgian choreographer. Here, it was a highlight... Continue Reading

    Press Review 2Zoë Anderson, Independent, Monday 27 June 2016Performance 24 & 25 June 2016

    Millepied’s choreography draws on classical ballet technique, particularly in the footwork. It also suggests the influence of Mark Morris in its springy vocabulary and same sex duets.

    Marie Chouinard - Double Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Sarah Kent, Wednesday 22 June 2016 — Performance: 20 & 21 June 2016

    Of course, its impossible for a three dimensional body to imitate a brushstroke or an ink blot, but therein lies the fun; it's fascinating to watch the various strategies adopted by dancers attempting to tr… Continue Reading

    Press Review 4Neil Norman, The Stage, Wednesday 22 June 2016Performance 20 & 21 June 2016

    From the fundamentally simple idea of human calligraphy Chouinard constructs a work of staggering virtuosity whose accumulating speed and intricacy reaches an intense climax as the dancers shed their black clothes and dance in a strobe light.

    Poignant, funny and outrageous dance theatre, as entertaining as it is life affirming

    Press Review 3Rachel Elderkin, The Stage, Tuesday 21 June 2016Performance 14 - 18 June 2016

    Francisco Hidalgo’s solo tingles with passion as he shimmies at incredible speed. These moments of pure Flamenco are the saving grace of the show, as is Kathak dancer Ash Mukherjee, who twirls his body in a swirling storm.

    Press Review 4Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 21 June 2016Performance 1 - 12 June 2016

    Configured for the vast auditorium of the Royal Albert Hall, it features no fewer than 60 swans. When they make their first entrance, wave after wave of them, it’s awesome. To see them move and breathe as one is also profoundly touching.
