    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 7 November 2007Performance 31 Oct-10 Nov 07

    ‘He is most successful with Apollo , whose music he explores in terms of clear, clean dance, unfussed in its lines, often responsive to Stravinskian rhythm. I would like, though, to see it danced with more elegance, more assurance, than by his present cast, whos…

    Press Review John Percival, The Stage, Wednesday 7 November 2007Performance 31 Oct-10 Nov 07

    ‘… O, Clark’s 2005 treatment of Apollo, contains the evening’s best choreography, with its tributes to Balanchine and to Clark’s earlier style. True, a lot more happens in the music than in the movement, but it’s still well worth watch…

  11. Splintergroup in Roadkill at Barbican Pit

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 5 November 2007Performance 30 Oct-10 Nov 07

    ‘Tapping into the myths and paranoia inspired by the vast red-dirt emptiness of the Australian outback, Roadkill invites us into the predicament of a couple whose car breaks down in the middle of nowhere.’ 

  12. James Thiérrée in Au Revoir Parapluie at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 5 November 2007Performance 30 Oct-10 Nov 07

    ‘Elegant as a mannequin as he obsessively folds up his jacket and continues to fold up himself, or scolds wilful feet that take strides either too large or too tiny (echoes of grand-père in his dancer’s delicacy, half self-mocking, half serious), Thiérrée …
