  3. Birmingham Royal Ballet, Spring Passions

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Thursday 15 March 2012Performance 13 - 14 March 2012

    Jamie Bond and Jenna Roberts make a gentle Daphnis and Chloë. He’s confident in Daphnis’s demanding competition solo, without showing the strain of its flowing steps. Roberts gives a clean account of her dance to a flute…  

  4. Men in Motion at Sadler's Wells (March)

    Press Review 3Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Wednesday 14 March 2012Performance 13 - 15 March 2012

    [Putrov] is to be congratulated for a bill that puts the focus on the male of the dancing species: it is not profound, but it is enjoyable.

  6. Birmingham Royal Ballet, Spring Passions

    Press Review 4Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 14 March 2012Performance 13 - 14 March 2012

    Happily The Two Pigeons reminded us of Birmingham’s qualities. Here is a ballet of unashamed sentiment in its ravishing dances, its adorable score and its world of feeling.  

  7. Birmingham Royal Ballet, Spring Passions

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 14 March 2012Performance 13 - 14 March 2012

    Parker handles the pigeons with exactly the same assurance with which he walks this ballet’s tricky line between sentiment and sentimentality.  

  8. Men in Motion at Sadler's Wells (March)

    Press Review 2Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 14 March 2012Performance 13 - 15 March 2012

    Polunin is back to make his choreographic debut – which does nothing to lift a desperately weak evening.  

  9. DV8, Can We Talk About This

    Press Review 4Sarah Hemming , Financial Times, Tuesday 13 March 2012Performance 12 - 28 March 2012

    But this is a daring, serious piece of theatre that suggests that, in fact, we have to talk about this.  

  10. Scottish Dance Theatre's Mixed Bill at The Place

    Press Review 2Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 13 March 2012Performance 9 - 10 March 2012

    Each of its four works contain nuggets of wit and insight, yet there’s a scrappiness about all of them that cumulatively saps the evening of authority.  

  11. DV8, Can We Talk About This

    Press Review 3Michael Billington, Guardian, Tuesday 13 March 2012Performance 12 - 28 March 2012

    “much as I applaud a piece of physical theatre that deals with serious issues, the debate about multiculturalism is over-simplified. What is never explored is the idea that integration in some areas of life can be combined with preservation of one’s cultural … 

  12. DV8, Can We Talk About This

    Press Review 4Charles Spencer, Telegraph, Tuesday 13 March 2012Performance 12 - 28 March 2012

    But the stylised movement actually serves as a distraction from the scary urgency of what is being said.  

  13. DV8, Can We Talk About This

    Press Review Paul Taylor, Independent, Tuesday 13 March 2012Performance 12 - 28 March 2012

    There are fantastically difficult and important issues at stake here. They are dealt with in an undeniably powerful but also infuriatingly facile manner.  

  14. Royal Ballet - Romeo & Juliet at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Monday 12 March 2012Performance in rep until 3 April 2012

    In even the briefest separations, their limbs and gaze craned out frustratedly, and the lack of self-consciousness with which they intertwined helped make Kenneth MacMillan’s entire work make perfect, tragic sense.  

  15. Royal Ballet - Romeo & Juliet at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Sunday 11 March 2012Performance in rep until 3 April 2012

    Here was a performance of Romeo and Juliet dominated by its male dancers: Steven McRae as Romeo, Bennet Gartside as Tybalt; Gary Avis as Capulet, James Hay as Mercutio, Thomas Whitehead as Paris.
