  1. Pilobolus - Shadowlands - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 4, Metro, Thursday 13 March 2014Performance 11 - 30 March

    There’s a clever mash-up of styles. It’s sometimes cartoony, with Tom and Jerry-style violence, and sometimes weird and sinister. There are vivid colours – particularly in one underwater scene – and a startling use of perspective.  

  2. Olwen Fouéré - Riverrun - The Shed

    Press Review 3Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard, Thursday 13 March 2014Performance 11 - 22 March

    This is intellectually acrobatic theatre, and Fouéré is a remarkably magnetic presence — voluble and intense, with a touch of silvery magic about her. She is embodying Joyce’s writing rather than interpreting it, channelling its turbulence and playfulness and dar… 

  3. Tavaziva Ten - Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Katie Columbus, The Stage, Wednesday 12 March 2014Performance 11 March 2014

    This performance is a remarkable tribute to Bawren Tavaziva’s work to date, confirmation that over the past 10 years he has consolidated his company as one of the UK’s leading African-contemporary touring groups.

    Belén Maya Company with Manuel Liñán — Trasmín - Sadler's Wells

    Josephine Leask, Wednesday 12 March 2014 — Performance: 10 March 2014

    His style is compact, punchy, even aggressive; hers is elegant, fluid & explorative. Collectively, with their family of musicians, they present a show in which traditional and contemporary flamenco elements … Continue Reading

  7. Gala Flamenca - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 12 March 2014Performance 11 - 13 March

    Pericet is a marvellous dancer, bringing a thrilling precision to every wheeling turn, every slant of the head. In her later, solo Abandolaos, she is rhythmically witty and dynamically alive. But between her and Flores there is disappointingly little chemistry.  

  8. Candoco Dance Company - Triple Bill - Laban Theatre

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Tuesday 11 March 2014 — Performance: 27 & 28 February 2014

    By way of clever physical & theatrical contextualisation De Frutos and dancers playfully and profoundly utilised the tools of dance theatre to strip disability of its disabling relevance... Continue Reading

  13. Ángel Múñoz - From White to Black - Sadler’s Wells

    Press Review 4Rachel Ward, Telegraph, Monday 10 March 2014Performance 9 March

    Broad-chested and with a mane of black curls he was a bull of a man, teasing the audience with slow slides of the foot, sweeping arm gestures and rapid flashes of the red lining of his suit jacket.  

  14. Yorke Dance Project - Figure Ground - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 5Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 9 March 2014Performance 27 - 28 February 2014

    As Yorke-Edgell first resists – body language quivering and fretful, arms pushing fearfully away – and then surrenders herself to ecstasy, you have the sense of an almost sexual capitulation. And, in the angularity and anguish of the physical vocabulary, a real sen…

    Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan - Rice - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Friday 7 March 2014 — Performance: 27 & 28 February 2014

    The Cloud Gate dancers are finely-honed performers and their lithe, lyrical athleticism is invigorating, even when the material they are performing has the opposite effect. Continue Reading
