  1. Darkin Ensemble in Augustine at The Place & touring

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 8 May 2007Performance 1&2 May 07

    ‘It’s not clear what message Fleur Darkin expects us to take away from Augustine – her surprisingly entertaining account of the goings-on in a French asylum in the 1890s.’ 

  2. Jonzi D in TAG... Me vs the City at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 8 May 2007Performance 2-4 May 07

    ‘it’s the skill of the dancers which gives the thing its beef. Most recognisable to UK audiences will be L’il Tim and K. L’il Tim is the preposterous one – back-flipping, head-spinning – while K is all shimmer and rippling line. ‘

  5. Jasmin Vardimon Company in Justitia at Touring

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 4 May 2007Performance

    ‘Vardimon’s staging can be ingenious, especially in the wordless, climactic tableaux when the set becomes both carousel and climbing gym.’  

  6. Jonzi D in TAG... Me vs the City at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 4 May 2007Performance 2-4 May 07

    ‘It begins terrifically. To the audience’s astonishment, each of the large “sculptures” on stage from the start, resembling three-dimensional graffiti letters, turns out to have a dancer wrapped around it – one by one, they hypnotically unco… 

  7. Darkin Ensemble in Augustine at The Place & touring

    Press Review Lyndsey Winship, The Stage, Friday 4 May 2007Performance 1&2 May 07

    ‘All good stuff, and chilling in parts, but by attempting to nail some deep and subtle ideas, Darkin sets herself a huge challenge and the construction of the work doesn’t match the eloquence of the accompanying notes.’

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 4 May 2007Performance 1&2 May 07

    ‘Watching Fleur Darkin’s Augustine is an exercise in the suppression of expectation. It never quite delivers what it promises, but it does engross and enfold.’ 

  9. Darkin Ensemble in Augustine at The Place & touring

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 4 May 2007Performance 1&2 May 07

  10. Darkin Ensemble in Augustine at The Place & touring

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 4 May 2007Performance 1&2 May 07

    ‘From one young girl’s “dancing to a music of memory and feeling” Darkin takes a leap into the meaning of hysteria and the importance of dance in connecting us to our innermost feelings.’  

  11. Darkin Ensemble in Augustine at The Place & touring

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 4 May 2007Performance 1&2 May 07

    ‘… as the language is unpacked into longer choreographed vignettes, slivers of sweetness, humour and fantasy emerge, along with a liberating energy.’

    ‘The entire affair lacks the sardonic edge that lies in Brecht’s words, even the curious lyricism with which Weill imbues Anna’s journeyings. Zenaida Yanowsky does all in her considerable powers to force the drama along, but it is an activity comparable…
