  1. Royal Ballet in La Bayadère at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Tuesday 9 October 2007Performance 6-27 Oct 07

    ‘Throughout [Tamara] Rojo gives us dancing of exquisite shape, touching dramatic nuance and exceptional technical flair.’  

  2. Inbal Pinto & Avshalom Pollak Dance Company in Shaker at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 9 October 2007Performance 8 Oct 07

    ‘The 11 dancers roll around in it and throw it in the air. They don’t look cold, as this is fantasy snow, or fantasy confetti, but they do look unnerved, as Shaker hints at the shadows your childhood instinct knew would darken the snowy perfection.’  

  3. Siobhan Davies Dance in Two Quartets at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 9 October 2007Performance 4 - 6 Oct 07

    ‘Especially appealing is the first half for a quartet of young dancers.’  

  4. Royal Ballet in La Bayadère at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 9 October 2007Performance 6-27 Oct 07

    ‘Marianela Nuñez’s Gamzatti stole the show, her dancing quick and sharp, her manner all diamond-hard glamour.’  

  5. Isaac Julien & Russell Maliphant in Cast No Shadow at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 9 October 2007Performance 3 & 4 Oct 2007

    ‘Julien and Maliphant don’t quite synergise. Occasionally you sense the two artists chime, anticipating, paralleling and echoing the other.’  

  6. Punchdrunk in The Masque of the Red Death at Battersea Arts Centre

    Press Review Kate Bassett, Independent on Sunday, Monday 8 October 2007Performance 17 Sep 07 - 12 Jan 08

    ‘… the choreography (by Maxine Doyle) is breathtakingly dangerous, with amorous and murderously violent couples sliding, entwined, down banisters and hurling each other across rooms.’ 

  7. Siobhan Davies Dance in Two Quartets at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 8 October 2007Performance 4 - 6 Oct 07

    ‘With these two quartets, Davies is again exploring new terrain. And the journey is fascinating.’  

  8. Siobhan Davies Dance in Two Quartets at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 8 October 2007Performance 4 - 6 Oct 07

    ‘Two Quartets is the latest stage in her pursuit of pure choreography – and it is one that is both shiningly intelligent and deeply frustrating.’  

  9. Lemi Ponifasio at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 8 October 2007Performance Sep 07

    ‘Imagery, not action, is the strength of Lemi Ponifasio’s Requiem, an austere performance that features song, music and movement.’  

  10. Siobhan Davies Dance in Two Quartets at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 8 October 2007Performance 4 - 6 Oct 07

    ‘It must have been very satisfying to make Two Quartets – the dancers are credited with “movement material and its development” – but it’s not all that satisfying to watch.’  

  11. Isaac Julien & Russell Maliphant in Cast No Shadow at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 8 October 2007Performance 3 & 4 Oct 2007

    ‘There are times when the screen is blank and the dance holds centre stage. At others, such as the scene in a deserted palace filmed in sumptuous close-up, dance and film bleed into a gorgeous harmony, the live action taking place behind the giant screen like a … 

  12. Hofesh Shechter in Uprising/In Your Rooms at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 8 October 2007Performance 28 - 29 September 07

    ‘Shechter is a concert-level percussionist, and although he’s only been making dance for five years, no other choreographer combines such a thrilling command of rhythm with such subtle manipulation of spatial dynamics.’ 

  13. Hofesh Shechter in Uprising/In Your Rooms at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 8 October 2007Performance 28 - 29 September 07

    ‘It’s always hard to make a convincing claim that something you’ve just seen is quite unlike anything seen before. But Shechter’s distinctiveness tempts you to make that claim.’ 

  14. Isaac Julien & Russell Maliphant in Cast No Shadow at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 8 October 2007Performance 3 & 4 Oct 2007

    ‘If Small Boats is overlong, the result is resonant and moving. And vitally, much more than the sum of its parts.’ 

  15. Isaac Julien & Russell Maliphant in Cast No Shadow at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Lyndsey Winship, The Stage, Monday 8 October 2007Performance 3 & 4 Oct 2007

    ‘To be fair, there are some flashes of inspiration, and the final underwater scene is amazing, but that’s assuming you’re still awake to see it.’
