  1. Michael Clark Company in Stravinsky Project at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Mark Monahan, , Monday 5 November 2007Performance 31 Oct-10 Nov 07

    ‘Much as the four-part choral ballet Les Noces (1923) was in fact a startling wedding between the wild folk music of Stravinsky’s homeland and the furious rhythmic urgency of his modernist leanings, Clark’s piece unites both his balletic training and co… 

  2. Michael Clark Company in Stravinsky Project at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 5 November 2007Performance 31 Oct-10 Nov 07

    ‘I Do closes an evening in which Clark’s entire Stravinsky trilogy is performed. Musically, it’s an extraordinary event, but choreographically it’s another landmark.’  

  3. Marie Gabrielle Rotie in Black Mirror/Brutality of Fact at Laban

    Libby Costello, Friday 2 November 2007 — Performance: 31 Oct-10 Nov 07

    1 November 2007 Watching Michael Clark Company perform in the Stravinsky Project nullified all claims that Clark is a ‘has been’. Attending the Barbican on the 1 November, with a friend who had not s… Continue Reading

  5. James Thiérrée in Au Revoir Parapluie at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 2 November 2007Performance 23 & 24 Oct 07

    ‘It was only later, as I unravelled the experience like a dream, that I began fully to value anew Thiérrée’s ability to treat big, melancholic themes with unflagging honesty, light-footed invention and sweet, childlike grace.’  

  6. Charles Linehan in Happy Days and The Way Station at The Place

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Thursday 1 November 2007Performance 23 & 24 Oct 07

    Reviewed at Nottdance, Nottingham ‘Linehan’s double bill at Lakeside Arts Centre was written in his elusive, quietly absorbing signature style. His chamber-sized work is laced with telling kinetic and emotional detail. The simple swing of an arm can signal… 

  7. Charles Linehan in Happy Days and The Way Station at The Place

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Thursday 1 November 2007Performance 23 & 24 Oct 07

    “Charles Linehan is the ultimate insider’s choreographer. A miniaturist, whose work examines the faultlines beneath everyday situations, he achieves his effects by the layering of subtle physical detail.” 

  8. James Thiérrée in Au Revoir Parapluie at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Thursday 1 November 2007Performance 30 Oct - 10 Nov 07

    ‘There are so many good things to say about James Thierree it’s difficult to know where to start. The undercover acrobat excels at insouciant circus, the small-scale sort with rag-taggity tumblers and accidental jugglers.’  

  9. Splintergroup in Roadkill at Barbican Pit

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Thursday 1 November 2007Performance 30 Oct - 10 Nov 07

    ‘The staging is ultra-simple yet surprisingly effective, but the music and choreography are not.’  

  10. Splintergroup in Roadkill at Barbican Pit

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 1 November 2007Performance 30 Oct - 10 Nov 07

    ‘The three dancers of Splintergroup are fearless in creating the illusion of violence.’  

  11. James Thiérrée in Au Revoir Parapluie at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Thursday 1 November 2007Performance 30 Oct - 10 Nov 07

    ‘Following on from his rapturously received 2003 piece La Veillée des Abysses, his yearning, bittersweet, sometimes genuinely beautiful new Au Revoir Parapluie stirs circus, dance, mime, clowning, aerial wizardry and heaven knows what else into a bizarre but often… 

  12. James Thiérrée in Au Revoir Parapluie at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Thursday 1 November 2007Performance 30 Oct - 10 Nov 07

    ‘Watching Thiérrée’s dazzling show – part dance, part conjuring trick, part visual theatre – is like being involved in a mad word-association game that has been given a physical manifestation.’  

  13. James Thiérrée in Au Revoir Parapluie at Sadler's Wells

    Lindsey Clarke, Thursday 1 November 2007 — Performance: 30 Oct - 10 Nov 07

    There’s magic going on at Sadler’s Wells and it’s not even Christmas. James Thiérrée has taken over the cavernous stage and filled it with convention flouting aerialistics, beautiful clowning… Continue Reading
