    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 10 February 2015Performance 5 & 6 February 2015

    Pite structures her work with a thrilling intelligence and choreographs with a detail that makes you feel passion and unease under your own skin.

  5. The Associates - Pite, Prince, Shechter - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Guardian, Monday 9 February 2015Performance 5 & 6 February 2015

    Prince and Shechter, in particular, are experimenting with projects intended to take them in new directions. This is laudable; artists who don’t expand their horizons risk seeing them contract. But forcing change isn’t easy, as the evening demonstrates. 

  6. The Associates - Pite, Prince, Shechter - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Liz Hoggard, Evening Standard, Monday 9 February 2015Performance 5 & 6 February 2015

    Had Shechter really cheated on his wife? What was Pite’s experience of unrequited love? You left the theatre questioning the nature of authorship, confession, and live performance. Long may it continue.

    Jonathan Burrows & Matteo Fargion seem bound and determined to convince us that choreography primarily exists in the mind of the beholder; that it is more graph or framework, than emotional core... Continue Reading

    Graham Watts, Monday 9 February 2015 — Performance: 5 & 6 February 2015

    Having Associate Artists is a big deal to Sadler’s Wells. The first appointments, over ten years ago, signified a major strategic change in the theatre’s approach to dance... Continue Reading

  9. Cirque Du Soleil - Kooza - Royal Albert Hall

    Press Review 5Arifa Akbar, Independent, Friday 6 February 2015Performance 7 January - 9 February

    Kooza doesn’t give us more of the same, but reclaims the world-famous Québecois circus from the garish lights of Las Vegas, to offer something smaller, sleeker and far, far sparkier.

  12. Royal Ballet - Onegin - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 3 February 2015Performance 24 January - 27 February 2015

    Osipova wrenches it into raw, needy expression, at times slowing the steps to near-paralysis, at others speeding them to the brink of ragged hysteria.

    Press Review 5Laura Thompson, Telegraph, Tuesday 3 February 2015Performance 24 January - 27 February 2015

    Natalia Osipova made her debut in the role of Tatiana, and received the kind of roaring, heel-drumming curtain call that I’ve not heard at Covent Garden in a long time. 

  15. Peeping Tom - 32 rue Vandenbranden - Barbican Theatre

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 2 February 2015Performance 28 - 31 January 2015

    An eerie and original show, there’s a lot going on in this cold, cold place, but it takes a long time to truly care.
