    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 24 March 2009Performance 23 - 25 Mar 09

    ‘Yerbabuena herself is glorious. Small and round, her frothy petticoats and fringed shawls convey an intense kind of femininity, as do her curving, turning hands, as if she’s Eve picking apples. Then come deep, pliant bends and much earthier sways and squa…

  5. Ballet Lorent in Designer Body at German Gymnasium & touring

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 24 March 2009Performance 18 Mar 09

    ‘What sets them apart, however, is the fact that the plinths on which they stand begin to revolve, sometimes as fast as 20 revs per minute, and that choreographer Liv Lorent is using this technology to explore a whole new gyroscopic language of dance.’

  10. Antiono Gades Carmen at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 23 March 2009Performance 19 - 22 Mar 09

  11. Antiono Gades Carmen at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 23 March 2009Performance 19 - 22 Mar 09

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 20 March 2009Performance 19 - 22 Mar 09

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 20 March 2009Performance 15 Mar 09

    ‘I love the way Merche Esmeralda stands, summoning the dance from the sea of her dress, her torso curving over the movement. I love the way Rocío Molina stands, raising her skirts as her feet create machine-gun fusillades from the stage. I love the way Belén Maya…
