  1. Royal Ballet in Chroma/ Different Drummer/ The Rite of Spring at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 4 February 2008Performance 2, 15, 18, 20, & 23 Feb 08

    ‘Even if one or two are tempted to get just a little bit hip with the choreography, Chroma remains a stunningly poetic piece – enigmatic, alien, romantic.’  

  2. Sampled at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 4 February 2008Performance 26 & 27 Jan 08

    ‘The idea behind Sampled is that you can test the waters. You may come with a preference for ballet and find that flamenco or street dance grabs you. Or not. But to judge by the response, last year and last Sunday, the audience were enjoying everything on offer.’

    Graham Watts, Monday 4 February 2008 — Performance: 2, 15, 18, 20, & 23 Feb 08

    Performance: 2 February 2008 This was a triumph of programming that exceeded every mouth-watering expectation, bringing together the very best recent work by the Company’s resident choreographer, Wayne McG… Continue Reading

  4. Henri Oguike Dance Company in Mixed Bill at Cambridge

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 1 February 2008Performance Jan 08 coming to QEH 12 & 13 Mar.

    ‘An evening with Henri Oguike is always an evening of spirited musical adventure. Lots of people choreograph to Vivaldi (though surely none so quixotically as Oguike) but who else would manage Arabic folk, New Mexican Pueblo songs and modern British jazz on the … 

  5. Henri Oguike Dance Company in Mixed Bill at Cambridge

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 1 February 2008Performance Jan 08 coming to QEH 12 & 13 Mar.

    ‘There is a sequence in Henri Oguike’s latest work, All Around, which looks like nothing any other choreographer has made.’  

  6. La La La Human Steps in Amjad at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 1 February 2008Performance 30 Jan - 2 Feb 08

    ‘Performed by Lock’s Montreal-based La La La Human Steps, and now launched on a major UK tour, Amjad is an exhilarating memory trip and a brute assault course all in one. ‘  

  7. La La La Human Steps in Amjad at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 1 February 2008Performance 30 Jan - 2 Feb 08

    ‘Amjad, by the Canadian company La La La Human Steps, makes high-speed ballet a very slow experience. Choreographer Edouard Lock takes a fractured view of Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty, with classical steps performed at flickering double speed.’  

  8. La La La Human Steps in Amjad at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 1 February 2008Performance 30 Jan - 2 Feb 08

    ‘At times the material turns repetitive, and some of its effects feel like meretricious tricks. But the essence of Lock’s language is extraordinary, classical steps wired to extremes of speed and expression.’  

  9. Review: La La La Human Steps in Amjad at Sadler's Wells

    Katie Fish, Friday 1 February 2008 — Performance: 30 Jan - 2 Feb 08

    Performance 30 Jan Artistic director and choreographer Édouard Lock’s Amjad was inspired by two of the most popular nineteenth century ballets – Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty and *Swan Lake*. … Continue Reading

  10. Review: La La La Human Steps in Amjad at Sadler's Wells

    Libby Costello, Friday 1 February 2008 — Performance: 30 Jan - 2 Feb 08

    Sophisticated, sleek and streamline – words usually associated with luxury cars couldn’t be more befitting of La La La Human Steps’ new work. Choreographed by company founder, Edouard Lock, *Am… Continue Reading

  13. Royal Ballet in Sylvia at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 30 January 2008Performance 18 Jan - 31 Mar 08

    ‘Sarah Lamb, making her debut, is fascinating casting. A dancer of magnificent technique and style, she has approached 19th-century classics with a reverence that becomes dull. Sylvia is a glimpse of how good Lamb could be in a tutu ballet, stepping past reverence … 

  14. Tango por Dos in Miguel Angel Zotto's Buenos Aires Tango at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Wednesday 30 January 2008Performance 29 Jan - 23 Feb 08

    ‘Buenos Aires Tango is a great show. It’s Argentine tango, the smooth, slip-slide variety. Forget the sharp, staccato tango we see on ballroom shows with almost comical flicks of the head and shoulders. With Tango por Dos, it’s all Latin languor.’  

  15. Sampled at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 30 January 2008Performance 26 & 27 Jan 08

    ‘..it’s the strength of the onstage programme that sells it…It’s a good mix of solo and company performances.’
