  3. Sylvie Guillem & Russell Maliphant in Push at London Coliseum

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Wednesday 9 April 2008Performance 4 Apr 08

    ‘The tender intimacy of Maliphant’s choreography; the serene grace of its execution; the way he places his light-as-air ballerina on a pedestal while rooting her in his earthier self; how the weight of their movement is passed between them like a kiss; the…

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 9 April 2008Performance 4 & 5 Apr 08

    ‘Rosie Kay, as lead performer and choreographer, possesses a pitiless eye for the body language of the inebriated, and, in this 75-minute bash, perfectly captures the gaudily self-conscious gestures of the wasted, their slippage between painful deliberation and …

  7. Toronto Dance Theatre at Linbury Studio at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 7 April 2008Performance 2 & 3 APr 08

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Monday 7 April 2008Performance 4 & 5 Apr 08

    ‘Two of the three ballets in the triple bill made you laugh at their surface gloss and hollow interior, although one piece, Wings of Wax by Jiri Kylian, showed you what perfectly ingenious dancing can be.’

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 7 April 2008Performance 2 - 5 Apr 08

    ‘What a difference a decade makes. In 1997, when Nederlands Dans Theater director Jirí Kylián made Wings of Wax, his work was still recognisably that of an important choreographer’. 

  11. Sylvie Guillem & Russell Maliphant in Push at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 7 April 2008Performance 4 Apr 08

    ‘Three years after its premiere, Push looks like a fine piece of mahogany – age and time have added a patina of even greater richness to its gleaming tones.’
