  1. Cirque Du Soleil, Koozå at the Royal Albert Hall

    Press Review 3Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard, Wednesday 9 January 2013Performance 8 January - 14 February 2013

    no one comes to Cirque’s extravaganzas to brood on concepts of “strength and fragility”. Rather we want to watch highly skilled performers do the sort of things that are scarcely possible, and in this respect Kooza is a triumph.  

  2. Cirque Du Soleil, Koozå at the Royal Albert Hall

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 9 January 2013Performance 8 January - 14 February 2013

    The prize for insane bravery goes to Jimmy Ibarra and Ronald Solis, who perform on the aptly-named Wheel of Death.

  8. Fuerzabruta -Roundhouse

    Press Review Clare Brennan, Observer, Sunday 6 January 2013Performance 27 December - 26 January 2013

    Faultless in its physical energy (13 performers) and technical wizardry (Alejandro Garcia), the performance feels artistically incomplete (Diqui James, creator): sensation without communication.  

  9. Royal Ballet - Firebird / In The Night / Raymonda -Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Sunday 6 January 2013Performance 22, 29 December, 4, 9, 11 January 2013

    In the Night. Sarah Lamb and Federico Bonelli brought a transparent elegance to their circling eddying rapture, while Zenaida Yanowksy and Nehemiah Kish were unnerving in their mutual ironic reserve. It was, however, Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg who dominated, thei… 

  10. Fuerzabruta -Roundhouse

    Press Review 4, Financial Times, Friday 4 January 2013Performance 27 December - 26 January 2013

    Above all, this is a sensory experience, with the audience (who stand throughout) showered with water, glitter and tickertape. As the show plays with perspective, it allows you to gaze down on runners and up on swimmers, and encourages you to surrender to an exuberant …

  12. Fuerzabruta -Roundhouse

    Press Review 4Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard, Friday 4 January 2013Performance 27 December - 26 January 2013

    I went in feeling I had seen it all before but left feeling exhilarated all over again. It is not just the wind machines that will blow you away. Style over content, perhaps, but boy, what style.  

  13. Royal Ballet - Firebird / In The Night / Raymonda -Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Telegraph, Friday 4 January 2013Performance 22, 29 December, 4, 9, 11 January 2013

    Itziar Mendizabal brings an alien wildness to the Firebird’s mercurial changes of pace and direction, and her soaring jete dominates the stage. In the evening performance Mara Galeazzi was equally impressive  

  14. Fuerzabruta -Roundhouse

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Indpendent, Thursday 3 January 2013Performance 27 December - 26 January 2013

    Fuerzabruta is a big, loud, cheerful burst of images. A running man breaks through walls, giggling aerialists chase each other and women swim, in real water, over the heads of the audience.
