    Press Review Neil Norman, Daily Express, Friday 12 November 2010Performance 9 - 13 November 2010

    “Henrietta Horn’s homage to the Seventies, Cardoon Club, is a classic Rambert mix of casually superb dancing and offbeat humour.”

    Press Review Neil Norman, The Stage, Friday 12 November 2010Performance 6, 8 - 10 November 2010

    “With a hint of Kabuki theatre in the ritualistic poses and lurid make-up, this is fuelled by a confrontational aggression that is unusual for the viewer-friendly Featherstonehaughs”

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Thursday 11 November 2010Performance 2 - 20 November 2010

    ‘Balé de Rua stresses high-energy unison dances. Even so, it gives individual dancers their moment in the spotlight. One breaks into a moonwalk; others turn brilliant backflips. The headspin sequence is the most distinctive. Balé de Rua makes a buoyant, very c…

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Thursday 11 November 2010Performance 6, 8 - 10 November 2010
