  1. Midnight Tango at Aldwych Theatre

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 6 February 2012Performance

    Their [Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace’s] dancing is sleek, with fluid lines and speedy footwork. Cacace is both lyrical and strong, with gorgeously open movement through her arms and torso. Simone partners her with sinuous authority.  

  2. Lizzi Kew Ross Without Warning at Old Vic Tunnels

    Press Review 2Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 6 February 2012Performance 1 - 11 Feb 2012

    Without Warning has a brilliant location, but takes a while to make the most of it.  

  3. Russell Maliphant Company in The Rodin Project at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 6 February 2012Performance 5 Feb 2012

    Inspired by the work of the French sculptor, with a fascinating cast who can do everything from hip hop to burlesque, the show spends too long in artistic poses.  

  4. Russell Maliphant Company in The Rodin Project at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 6 February 2012Performance 5 Feb 2012

    As a spectacle, it is ravishing, and made even more so by the dreamy colour washes of Michael Hulls’s lighting, in blues, greens, pinks and moonlit silver. Yet the dancers seem trapped within their frame, and only rarely do they assert a distinctive presence of t… 

  5. Russell Maliphant Company in The Rodin Project at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 5Clifford Bishop, Evening Standard, Monday 6 February 2012Performance 5 Feb 2012

    With The Rodin Project, Maliphant has made something formal enough to satisfy the Académie, and sexy as (the Gates of) Hell.

  7. Russell Maliphant Company in The Rodin Project at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 5, Evening Standard, Monday 6 February 2012Performance 5 Feb 2012

    The dancers hang, slide, tumble and contort themselves, while the choreography shapes a language of delight from a vocabulary of torment.

  9. Ivan Putrov's Men in Motion -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 5 February 2012Performance 27 -29 January 2012

    Entering with a huge gliding leap, Polunin showed us precisely what he was about to deprive us of. The effortless purity of line, the pouncing jump, the playful but absolute command of stage-space.

  12. Royal Ballet in The Dream/Song of the Earth at Royal Opera House

    Press Review 5Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 3 February 2012Performance in rep until 5 March 2012

    With Song of the Earth, our national ballet is at its most serious and profoundly expressive.  

  13. Wayne McGregor|Random Dance/Candoco Dance Company/Hofesh Shechter Company at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Clifford Bishop, Evening Standard, Friday 3 February 2012Performance 2 & 3 Feb 2012

    In contrast, Brown’s robotically simple, sensibly flexible instructions provide an algorithm for something fresh, natural and heartwarming.  

  14. Royal Ballet in The Dream/Song of the Earth at Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Laura Thompson, Telegraph, Friday 3 February 2012Performance in rep until 5 March 2012

    By miraculously simple means the work [Song of the Earth] engages with the great themes of death and renewal, and in Carlos Acosta as the Messenger of Death and Tamara Rojo as the Woman, it has interpreters who allow those themes to permeate their every movement.
