  1. English National Ballet - Modern Masters - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 15 March 2015Performance 10 - 15 March 2015

    Watching ENB perform William Forsythe is a bit like hearing a convent girl swear. It’s not really in the company’s DNA. But the nine-strong cast give Forsythe’s In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated their best shot, and it’s a joy to see them let rip.

  7. Ballet de Lorraine - Shaker Loops / Cover - Linbury Studio Theatre

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 13 March 2015Performance 11 - 14 March, 2015

    Couples meet in randomly impassioned quarrels or embraces; individuals hurl imprecations to invisible gods or lose themselves in games of skipping. The atmosphere is archaic and oddly haunting. 

  8. English National Ballet - Modern Masters - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Hannah Weibye, The Arts Desk, Thursday 12 March 2015Performance 10 - 15 March 2015

    This is modern ballet at its peak, presented by a great company in a great venue. Tickets are still available and they aren’t even expensive. Seriously, this one is not to be missed.

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Wednesday 11 March 2015Performance 10 - 15 March 2015

    In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated starts with a hefty crunch and ends with an almighty bang. What comes in between is, now as ever, quite extraordinary.
