  1. Rajni Shah in Dinner with America at Spill Festival at Laban

    Press Review Mary Kate Connolly, Spill Overspill, Tuesday 14 April 2009Performance 6 Apr 09

    ‘In many ways, Dinner with America was a methodical peeling back of the layers of a country’ 

  2. Russell Maliphant in Two: Four: Ten at London Coliseum

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Tuesday 14 April 2009Performance 7 - 11 Apr 09

    ‘Retinal after-blur – as with a Catherine wheel on bonfire night – is integral to the experience [Two x Two], and like every firework display, it’s over too soon.’ 

  3. Russell Maliphant in Two: Four: Ten at London Coliseum

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 14 April 2009Performance 7 - 11 Apr 09

    ‘There’s more variety in Critical Mass, a male duet from 1998. Cooper and Maliphant stop and start; there’s a few touches of individual personality. But it’s not enough to lift an accomplished evening out of blandness.’  

  4. Russell Maliphant in Two: Four: Ten at London Coliseum

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 14 April 2009Performance 7 - 11 Apr 09

    ‘For many, particularly those unaware how, in the hands of artists like Merce Cunningham or Mark Morris, abstract dance can evoke profound emotion, the skill levels on display will be enough. For those who know that real theatre occurs only when you leave the safet…

    Dance UK Director challenges BBC

    Thursday 9 April 2009

    “There isn’t anyone with expertise at the BBC to push dance. Most of the BBC’s dance coverage seems to be with the Royal Opera House, and it’s been many years since English National Balle… Continue Reading

  6. Royal Ballet in Giselle at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Thursday 9 April 2009Performance 6 Apr - 26 May 09

    ‘Again, Nunez lifts the performance around her. … The velvet richness of her movement is unexpected and wonderful.’  

  7. Russell Maliphant in Two: Four: Ten at London Coliseum

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Thursday 9 April 2009Performance 7 - 11 Apr 09

    ‘At its best, in Two x Two, where Dana Fouras and Daniel Proietto exchange signals, flailing arms to produce arcs of post-retinal blur, the effects are fascinating. At its most self-regarding, in the Sheer duet for Oaks and Edur, and the half-hour déjà-vu phenome… 

  8. Russell Maliphant in Two: Four: Ten at London Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 9 April 2009Performance 7 - 11 Apr 09

    ‘Between them, Oaks and Edur communicate an eloquent dialogue of hopefulness, trust and passion, and as always the lighting of Michael Hulls intensifies the emotion, irradiating the dancers so that the light seems to come from within their bodies as well as from… 

  9. Russell Maliphant in Two: Four: Ten at London Coliseum

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Thursday 9 April 2009Performance 7 - 11 Apr 09

    ‘Fouras and Proietto understand the need to perform the choreography from deep within the body — the effect is stunning.’  

  10. Russell Maliphant, 'two : four : ten' 7-11 April, London Coliseum

    Russell Maliphant in Two: Four: Ten at London Coliseum

    Graham Watts, Thursday 9 April 2009 — Performance: 7 - 11 Apr 09

    Spring Dance at the London Coliseum moved on from the over-exuberant ballet of American Ballet Theatre to a celebration of ten years’ choreographic output from Russell Maliphant. A retrospective that was e… Continue Reading

  12. Protein Dance in Dear Body at Coming to Queen Elizabeth Hall 28 & 29 Apr 09

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Wednesday 8 April 2009Performance Touring

    ‘Devised with the cast, all of the body language and contorted, gymnastic movement routines spring from the piece’s smart jabs at the culture of body fascism.’  

  13. Protein Dance in Dear Body at Coming to Queen Elizabeth Hall 28 & 29 Apr 09

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Wednesday 8 April 2009Performance Touring

    ‘Silvestrini takes a scalpel to the physical esteem industry and lays open the infantilism underlying body dissatisfaction. It’s a gruelling journey, as you would expect, but buy a ticket. You’ll shed pounds.’ 

  14. Russell Maliphant in Two: Four: Ten at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Wilkinson, The Stage, Wednesday 8 April 2009Performance 7 - 11 Apr 09

    ‘For an audience familiar with Maliphant’s work, the evening offers little in the way of fresh insight. For the uninitiated, the indulgent programming drains the pieces of their definition, displaying his material in a strangely anaemic light.’ 

  15. Havana Rumba! at Riverside Studios

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Wednesday 8 April 2009Performance to 3 May 09

    ‘If effortlessly playful, hot-footed booty shaking is your thing, look no farther than the limber boys and luscious girls gathered and guided by Guerra and Gough.’
