  1. Maresa Von Stockhert in Marjorie's World at Purcell Room, South Bank Centre

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 12 February 2007Performance Feb 07

    ‘Marjorie’s World doesn’t make one doubt Von Stockert’s talent, it simply throws up her need for an inspired editor.’  

  2. Ultima Vez in Spiegel at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 12 February 2007Performance 9&10 Feb 07

    ‘The male-female duets tend to reduce to a basic, angry grapple; and overall there is a default, monochrome rhythm to which much of the dancing reverts.’  

  3. Ye Gam Theatre Company in Jump at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 12 February 2007Performance 6 Feb - 14 Apr 07

    ‘It is a giddy mix of action flick, soap, silent comedy and cartoon caper, all held together in the medium of a martial arts movie.’  

  4. Royal Ballet in Swan Lake at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 12 February 2007Performance 3-27 Feb 07

    ‘The Royal Ballet‘s current production of Swan Lake, mounted by Anthony Dowell in 1987, is closer than any other to the Petipa-Ivanov original and last week’s opening performance saw Ivan Putrov and Roberta Marquez in the lead roles.’ 

  5. Royal Ballet in Swan Lake at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Ismene Brown, Telegraph, Monday 12 February 2007Performance 3-27 Feb 07

    ‘The production is the familiar over-decorated affair by Anthony Dowell and Yolanda Sonnabend. I just itch to get the scissors and start snipping trailing threads, ribbons and bobbles off it.’ 

  6. Ballet Black at Linbury Studio

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Friday 9 February 2007Performance 28 Jan - 3 Feb 07

    ‘There is not a weak moment here. Raymond Chai and young Royal Ballet protégé Liam Scarlett supply neat and polished works. Umdlalo kaSisi, by Zimbabwe-born Bawren Tavaziva, melds the classical aesthetic to the spiritual rapture of South Africa with surprising su… 

  7. Emio Greco & Pieter C. Scholten in Hell at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Friday 9 February 2007Performance 28 Jan - 3 Feb 07

    ‘They specifically reject dance “as a medium for conveying, or for dressing a theatrical space”. What’s left, then, is dull and ugly – intentionally so.’ 

  8. Resolution! at The Place

    Mariko Harano, Friday 9 February 2007 — Performance: 5 Jan - 17 Feb 07

    Monday 5 February It’s always a great joy to find a small, rough gemstone during “Resolution!” . The last piece of the triple bill at the Place on Monday, White Wall Dance Theatre‘s 1200… Continue Reading

  9. Royal Ballet in Swan Lake at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 7 February 2007Performance 3-27 Feb 07

    ‘Dowell’s Swan Lake will be 20 years old this March. It has always been a popular production. This version promises a traditional text, plus opulent designs by Yolanda Sonnabend. The current run is sold out.’  

  10. Ballet Black at Linbury Studio

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 7 February 2007Performance 28 Jan - 3 Feb 07

    ‘The whole company has an air of confidence and good humour. But I’d like to see these dancers in something more exposing, in ballets that told me more about them.’  

  11. Sampled at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 7 February 2007Performance 2-4 Feb 07

    ‘The programming was cleverly arranged. Besides mixing dance styles, the first night kept a balance between the frothy and the sober, with bursts of instantly accessible virtuosity. But the longer, less flashy numbers also held this audience’s attention.’  

  12. Sampled at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 7 February 2007Performance 2-4 Feb 07

    ‘What was clever, too, about Sampled’s overall programme is that its wide mix of styles could nudge audiences into making basic connections about the art form.’  

  13. Sampled at Sadler's Wells

    Lindsey Clarke, Wednesday 7 February 2007 — Performance: 2-4 Feb 07

    Friday 2 Feb Sampled is a great idea. Three nights of mixed bill programming featuring almost every major dance style and a raft of excellent companies and performers complemented by a try it yourself, daytime, … Continue Reading
