    Press Review 5Neil Norman, The Stage, Friday 11 March 2016Performance 10 & 11 March 2016

    …the final sequence as he is hauled aloft feet first into the air, arms outstretched, is both crucifixion and resurrection combined in one indelible image. Ecce homo. Behold the man.

  4. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker / Rosas - Golden Hours (As You Like It) - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 9 March 2016Performance 8 & 9 March 2016

    In theory she’s attempted something very ambitious, abstracting Shakespeare’s text into a silent score for dance. But too much of her choreography remains emotionally impenetrable and too little rises to the formal invention of her best work.

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 9 March 2016Performance 8 & 9 March 2016

    A cocktail of Shakespeare, Brian Eno and Belgian contemporary dance — how does that taste? Typical of choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s rigorously intellectual dance, it’s kind of medicinal. But, you know, in a really good way.

  14. Rhiannon Faith Company - Scary Shit - The Pleasance

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 7 March 2016Performance 26 - 27 February 2016

    Deceptive in its apparent goofball chaos, it identifies plangent truths about the lot of metropolitan women. It’s the old, sad song – bad sex, hard choices, the racing passage of time – but presented with wit and poignancy 

  15. Royal Ballet - Giselle - Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 7 March 2016Performance 26 February - 15 April 2016

    But the real thrill of this production is the Royal corps. In act one every dancer is an individual, with her own raison d’être and back story.
