  3. Lucy Guerin Inc - Untrained - Purcell Room, Southbank Centre

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Thursday 6 June 2013Performance 5-6 June 2013

    The novices bring honesty, vulnerability and authenticity to the stage, and some real comedy chops. It’s also an invitation to really look, to consider the moving body anew.  

  4. Royal Ballet - Mayerling - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 5Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Thursday 6 June 2013Performance in rep until 15 June 2013

    But magnificent though Kobborg was, he was matched every step of the way by the detail of Cojocaru’s performance. The couple dance together so often that their limbs seem melded into the same instinctive shapes and her confidence in him allows her to take breathtakin… 

  5. Rambert Dance Company - RainForest - Barbican Art Gallery

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Thursday 6 June 2013Performance 5 June 2013

    Clod Ensemble - Zero - Sadler's Wells

    Josephine Leask, Thursday 6 June 2013 — Performance: 4 & 5 June 2013

    Clod Ensemble’s Zero is a tragedy in five acts which takes inspiration from the blues, weather patterns and human relationships. Each act is introduced by a weather forecast.. Continue Reading

  7. Clod Ensemble - Zero - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 5 June 2013Performance 4 & 5 June 2013

    As a concept, Zero is vivid with possibilities, but, frustratingly, Willson’s choreography brings it to only intermittent life.

    Lise Smith, Wednesday 5 June 2013 — Performance: 31 May - 2 June 2013

    Donald Hutera, Tuesday 4 June 2013 — Performance: 29 May 2013

    I wonder if Mercier’s literally punchy approach to 'Rite' could be the most flat-out original & daring of all the versions lately staged in London... Continue Reading

  10. Meryl Tankard - The Oracle -Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre

    Press Review 4Gerald Dowler, Telegraph, Tuesday 4 June 2013Performance 31 May 2013

    Tankard focuses as much on the smallest of gestures as on great leaps and twists; shudders of the body, the momentary lifting of a foot, the agonised spasms of fingers count for as much as White’s bursts of violent physicality. It is a brilliant concept, superbly executed  

  11. Wilkie Branson & Sally Cookson - Varmints - Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Tuesday 4 June 2013Performance 17 & 18 May 2013

    There is much to enjoy and admire here. The cast are genuinely engaging and perform with real verve.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 3 June 2013Performance 31 May 2013

    He is the kind of dancer who is so finely in control of every muscle that he can actually move with complete freedom. He inhabits Stravinsky’s score, not just rhythmically but as if plugging into the deep roots of those clashing, crashing chords and their story of sa…
