  1. NDT2 in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 11 May 2007Performance 9 - 12 May 07

    ‘It [Sleight of Hand] feels a bit like The Matrix. It looks stunning, suggests profundity, and is brilliantly performed. But it is as empty and hollow as a void.’ 

  2. NDT2 in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 11 May 2007Performance 9 - 12 May 07

    ‘There’s no doubting the appeal of NDT2’s energetic dancers, who present an irresistible blend of fine training and fresh-faced enthusiasm. What galls is their prosaic, empty-headed repertoire’.  

  3. Review: Hofesh Shechter in In Your Rooms at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Lindsey Clarke, Wednesday 9 May 2007— Performance: 4 & 5 May 07

    Part two of the three venue progression for Shechter again saw him receive whooping adulation for Uprising brilliantly presented here with live percussion, a slightly altered cast and other revisions. The middle… Continue Reading

  6. Royal Ballet in The Seven Deadly Sins/ Pierrot Lunaire/ La Fin du Jour at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Wednesday 9 May 2007Performance 26 Apr-9 May 07

    ‘The piece opens wonderfully with Wainwright (singing Anna, blowsy, venal and sensual) and Zenaida Yanowsky (dancing Anna, fragile, innocent and exploited) holding hands, silhouetted against a huge white moon.’ 

  7. Breakin' Convention at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Wednesday 9 May 2007Performance 5-7 May 07

    ‘Just when you think you’ve seen everything hip-hop has to offer – the Samurai B-boys, the Brazilian comic popper, the krumping kindergarten – along comes another Breakin’ Convention that proves you happily, jaw-droppingly wrong.’  

  8. Breakin' Convention at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 9 May 2007Performance 5-7 May 07

    ‘Time has wrought still more unexpected changes. Baby Flex was not the only cute girl to face off the b-boys. The all-girl Rapture Crew from Northern Ireland bounced though one of the tightest, toughest little routines I have seen.’  

  9. Breakin' Convention at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Wednesday 9 May 2007Performance 5-7 May 07

    ‘At no other event in the entire London dance calendar do the spectators play so vital a part. Noisy, communal and predominantly youthful, they are also eagle-eyed observers of an incredible range of skills and styles.’  

  10. Breakin' Convention at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Gerald Dowler, Financial Times, Wednesday 9 May 2007Performance 5-7 May 07

    ‘In one evening (the sold-out festival ran for three days) I saw more talent, inventiveness, skill, choreography and artistry than in many a dull programme of worthy, po-faced contemporary dance. There is such enthusiasm for this dance form, which, like jazz, ha… 

  11. Royal Ballet in The Seven Deadly Sins/ Pierrot Lunaire/ La Fin du Jour at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 8 May 2007Performance 26 Apr-9 May 07

    ‘Tuckett strikes gold in his casting of Anna II. Yanowsky is not only a subtle actress – her body has a downtrodden, turned-in slouch right from the start – but she has the length of limb to make the wild extremes of the choreography look wilder still.’ 

  12. 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.’ 

  13. 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. ‘
