  1. Rambert Dance Company in Tread Softly/ Carnival of the Animals/ The Comedy of Change at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Tuesday 10 November 2009Performance 3 - 7 Nov 09

    “The dance [Tread Softly] is packed with quirky moves and gestures: wriggling and wagging, pelvic undulations, slaps, cantering processions with hands to backs, like wings.” 

  2. Wendy Houstoun in Keep Dancing at Battersea Arts Centre

    Press Review Allen Robertson, Times, Tuesday 10 November 2009Performance 22-24 Oct & 5-7 Nov

    “Pushing and stretching herself almost to breaking point, Houstoun seems to be showing us that dance is not necessarily a country reserved for the young.”  

  3. Mark Morris Dance Group in Prog1: Empire Garden / Bedtime / V at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 10 November 2009Performance 27 - 31 Oct 09

    “the return of Mark Morris is cause for rejoicing. One of the world’s most-loved choreographers, Morris is adored for his openness, his musicality and his warm, full-bodied style.” 

  4. Royal Ballet in Agon / Sphinx / Limen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 10 November 2009Performance in rep til 18 Nov 09

    “Wayne McGregor’s new Limen is framed by dazzling digital installations, but can’t find the steps to match. Glen Tetley’s Sphinx gets tangled in Greek myth, while Balanchine’s Agon was shockingly under-rehearsed”

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 10 November 2009Performance 3 - 7 Nov 09

    “it [The Comedy of Change] has unexpected mysticism, in part Yaron Abulafia’s temple- and void-like lighting, part Julian Anderson’s striking new score, and part Baldwin’ s choreography which is a variant on Merce Cunningham’s strain of c… 

  8. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre / ENO in The Rite of Spring at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 10 November 2009Performance in rep til 28 Nov 09

    ‘The problem is that his [Michael Keegan-Dolan] choreography doesn’t come close to catching the thundering terror of the music.’  

  9. Royal Ballet in Agon / Sphinx / Limen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 10 November 2009Performance in rep til 18 Nov 09

    “Japanese artist Tatsuo Miyajima and lighting designer Lucy Carter deserve equal billing for Wayne McGregor’s latest work, Limen. Part ballet, part installation, it creates a radical alchemy between movement and light. And, as with all of McGregor’s …

  11. Royal Ballet in Agon / Sphinx / Limen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, FT, Monday 9 November 2009Performance in rep til 18 Nov 09

    ‘Agon is the quintessential “modern ballet”. From the middle of the 20th century it looks both forward and back, as does its score.’  

  12. Royal Ballet in Agon / Sphinx / Limen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 9 November 2009Performance in rep til 18 Nov 09

    ‘Its central duet for Eric Underwood with Sarah Lamb – his dark limbs cradling her coiled white body like a solar eclipse – contains images I won’t forget. A resounding reason to go.’ 

  13. Rambert Dance Company in Tread Softly/ Carnival of the Animals/ The Comedy of Change at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 9 November 2009Performance 3 - 7 Nov 09

    ‘On the whole, Baldwin’s ambition pays off.’ 

  14. Royal Ballet in Mayerling at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 9 November 2009Performance in rep til 10 Nov 09

    ‘The cracked grandeur of his [Thiago Soares] dancing lends further layers of poignancy to an interpretation which promises fine things for the future.’ 

  15. Royal Ballet in Agon / Sphinx / Limen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 9 November 2009Performance in rep til 18 Nov 09

    ‘It’s thrilling and strange and sad, an immersive artwork in which boundaries dissolve before our eyes, and which, along with its companion-pieces Chroma (2006) and Infra (2008) places the Royal Ballet at the glittering edge of new dance.’
