  1. Mark Morris Dance Group in Mozart Dances at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 6 July 2007Performance 4-7 Jul 07

    ‘In the last of three linked dances, the Mark Morris Dance Group pair off in couples. With their bold torsos and fleet, skippy steps, they look both elegant and goofy: they could be dancing at court, or at an office party. Everything they do is human and marvell…

    Press Review Ismene Brown, Telegraph, Friday 6 July 2007Performance 4-7 Jul 07

    ‘Morris calls his piece Mozart Dances, and indeed Mozart dances, a feast for eyes as tender, witty and piercing as it is for the ears.’

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 6 July 2007Performance 4-7 Jul 07

    ‘By the end, with men on one side of the stage acknowledging women on the other, it’s as if everything that can be said about love has finally been said.’

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 6 July 2007Performance 4-7 Jul 07

    ‘To hear Mozart through Morris’s ears is to appreciate the music in scintillating new detail. Harmonic variations sparkle or darken through the changing textures of the choreography.’

    Press Review Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Wednesday 4 July 2007Performance 28 Jun - 4 July 07

    ‘It is an appealing, low-key piece played out on old-fashioned carpets and accompanied by traditional instruments and pure rising voices.’  

  11. Collectif Acrobatique de Tangier in Taoub at Roundhouse

    Press Review Ben Felsenburg, Evening Standard, Wednesday 4 July 2007Performance 28 Jun - 4 July 07

    ‘For all the dazzle of Collectif Acrobatique De Tangier’s rough and tumble stunts, the real trick for these street performers and Aurélien Bory, the Parisian director who spotted them on a Moroccan beach, is squaring traditional acrobatics with modern the…

    ‘And the dancers? Better at some things than others. They thrilled to the technical demands of Forsythe and McGregor, but showed dramatic and psychological uncertainty with Flamand.’

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 2 July 2007Performance 21 Jun 07

    ‘Performers shoot out of any number of trap doors or manhole covers; benches materialise from nowhere just as a sitter is lowering his posterior; a man casually walking around is suddenly propelled into the air with a whoosh by an unsuspected force from below; and,…
