  2. Review: Melanie Clarke and Guests in Mixed Bill at Laban

    Katie Fish, Monday 10 November 2008 — Performance: 6 Nov 08

    The Wayside, choreographed and performed by Laila Diallo, opens with the dancer appearing lost and forlorn, her petite frame somewhat emphasised by the dimness and emptiness of the surrounding space. Wearing a b… Continue Reading

  4. Mark Morris Dance Group in Romeo & Juliet, On Motifs of Shakespeare at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent on Sunday, Monday 10 November 2008Performance 5 - 8 Nov 2008

    ‘My biggest disappointment with this Romeo isn’t the underpowered and no longer star-cross’d lovers; it’s the lack of momentum in the big corps dances.’  

  5. Mark Morris Dance Group in Romeo & Juliet, On Motifs of Shakespeare at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 10 November 2008Performance 5 - 8 Nov 2008

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 10 November 2008Performance 6 - 8 Nov 08

    ‘For those with a taste for dance as graffito, for costive intellectualism as credo, here is your reward.’ 

  7. Royal Ballet of Flanders in William Forsythe's Impressing the Czar at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 10 November 2008Performance 6 - 8 Nov 08

    ‘Read the programme and you risk being cowed by Derrida and post-structuralism. Better just to sit back and enjoy this jubilantly chaotic take on the entire history of Western art and thought.’ 

  8. Royal Ballet of Flanders in William Forsythe's Impressing the Czar at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 10 November 2008Performance 6 - 8 Nov 08

    ‘Few choreographers can energise a big ensemble the way that the 58-year-old American does, and there are few things to beat the thrill of his climactic tribe of English schoolgirls (40 men and women all dressed alike) letting rip in an aerobic knees-up, Forsyth… 

  9. Royal Ballet of Flanders in William Forsythe's Impressing the Czar at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 10 November 2008Performance 6 - 8 Nov 08

  10. Review: Royal Ballet of Flanders in William Forsythe's Impressing the Czar at Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Friday 7 November 2008 — Performance: 6 - 8 Nov 08

    A Czar (or Tsar) is either the Emperor of Russia or ‘a person with great authority’. Whilst the former is extinct, the latter seem to grow inexorably. We have Transport Czars, a Drugs Czar and even a… Continue Reading

  11. Nuevo Ballet Español in Sangre Flamenca at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Katherine Colombus, The Stage, Friday 7 November 2008Performance 28 Oct - 15 Nov 2008

    ‘ this company has a soul. It is heard in the musicians’ passion and the singer’s soul-stirring wail, seen in the dancers’ energy and fervour and felt in the vision and inspiration of two men, Rojas and Rodriguez, and their desire to bring togethe… 

  12. Sadler's Wells in 10th Birthday Gala

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 7 November 2008Performance 3 November 2008

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 7 November 2008Performance 31 Oct & 1 Nov.08

    ‘[Michael] Corder offers a heady stream of pretty classical dancing and a hint of supernatural mystery, but doesn’t go far enough in exploring the tale’s sinister undertones.’  

  14. Mark Morris Dance Group in Romeo & Juliet, On Motifs of Shakespeare at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 7 November 2008Performance 5 - 8 Nov 2008

    ‘Morris’s choreography is wonderfully alert to its music. He handles the ensemble expertly — the ballroom scene is vivid and dynamic — but dancing for soloists is weak by comparison.’ 

  15. Birmingham Royal Ballet in Stravinsky: A Celebration! at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 7 November 2008Performance 31 Oct & 1 Nov.08

    ‘BRB’s accounts of Fokine were honourable. In reviving Petrushka, John Auld has inspired his cast to emulate the vodka-fuelled revellers who crowd the square in front of St Petersburg’s Admiralty building, and I liked Alexander Campbell’s pathos a…
