  2. Birmingham Royal Ballet - Mixed Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Flanders, Arts Desk, Wednesday 16 October 2013Performance 15 & 16 October 2013

    The company, especially the corps in E=mc2, are at their best, and the programming is ideal – a quickfire shift between entertainment and intelligence, intellect and art. Lucky Birmingham.

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Wednesday 16 October 2013Performance 15 & 16 October 2013

    Out of the Shadow, by 10-strong Austrian hip-hop dance troupe Nobulus, wears its faults on its sleeve… but there’s a great deal that’s right, too.  

  5. Birmingham Royal Ballet - Mixed Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 16 October 2013Performance 15 & 16 October 2013

    There’s a hypnotic tension between structural rigour and raw energy in David Bintley’s 2009 E=mc² part of the Birmingham Royal Ballets Mixed bill.

  11. Hofesh Shechter - Sun, Melbourne Playhouse

    Press Review 3Jana Perkovic, Guardian, Sunday 13 October 2013Performance Oct, coming to Sadler's Wells 30 Oct - 3 Nov

    Shechter’s choreographies are distinctly masculine: angry and political, they are socially and emotionally situated in the contemporary world.  

  12. Trisha Brown Dance Company - Prosecenium Works 1979-2001, Platform Theatre

    Press Review 4Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 11 October 2013Performance 9 - 11 October

    The nine dancers, echoing Brown’s early experiments with walking down walls or leaning to tipping point, often seem to work at odd angles to gravity. Jumps are tilted, turns off-centre. They lie down and scooch sideways, or pedal legs as if climbing stairs in the…

    Josephine Leask, Friday 11 October 2013 — Performance: 9 - 12 October 2013

    McGregor’s dancers explore their physical parameters with the concentration of scientists working on some ground-breaking experiment... their arms particularly eye-catching, engaged as actively as their legs... Continue Reading

  15. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance - Atomos - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Liz Hoggard, Evening Standard, Thursday 10 October 2013Performance 9 - 12 October 2013

    Ten extraordinary young dancers, clad in costumes by digital skin designers Studio XO, show how atoms bond to achieve stability; stealing electrons from each other; even giving them up to preserve group unity (not unlike a troupe of dancers making a work together).
