  2. Boy Blue Entertainment in Pied Piper at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Zoë Anderson, Independent, Friday 13 March 2009Performance 5 - 14 Mar 09

    “the storytelling is direct and confident. Confrontations between governors and Piper are told in clear mime. Sandy and Ultz built dance setpieces into their tale and, despite this, the story is never derailed by the dance fireworks.”

    Press Review Sarah Wilkinson, The Stage, Friday 13 March 2009Performance 5 - 14 Mar 09

    “The opening scene of Boy Blue Entertainment’s Pied Piper is brilliantly intimidating.”

    Press Review Gavin Roebuck, The Stage, Friday 13 March 2009Performance In rep 11, 12, 18, 20 & 21 March.09

    “Some of the new cast of Royal Ballet soloists, though not without virtuoso technique, seem to lack the distinctive personality that singles them out with charismatic star quality. Sergei Polunin looked more accomplished than his years, Samantha Raine has developed…

    A world premiere of a ballet by a choreographer who died some seventeen years ago must seem rather odd. The fact is that Kenneth MacMillan made ‘Isadora’ originally as a two-act ballet in 1981 to no … Continue Reading

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 9 March 2009Performance 27 & 28 Feb 09

    ‘This, surely, is the future. Dance that travels light, moves fast and knows that “interesting” is not enough.’ 

  10. Sylvie Guillem / Robert Lepage / Russell Maliphant in Eonnagata at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 9 March 2009Performance 26 Feb - 8 Mar 09

    ‘There are some lovely things, if you are patient. A duet between Guillem and Maliphant – the only bit of fully evolved choreography – exquisitely sets out the premise of two genders in one body, as the dancers’ forms repeatedly slide together and…

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 9 March 2009Performance 26 Feb - 8 Mar 09

    ‘What a palaver and a hotchpotch is Eonnagata…’

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 9 March 2009Performance 26 Feb - 8 Mar 09

    ‘You leave gorged with artifice – the lighting, the couture, Guillem’s still-fabulous développé devant – but wondering what, if anything, lies behind it all.’ 

  13. Boy Blue Entertainment in Pied Piper at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 9 March 2009Performance 5 - 14 Mar 09

    ‘Most thrilling are the massed synchronised choruses of “rats”, hunkering and juddering in their black hoodies.’ 

  14. Boy Blue Entertainment in Pied Piper at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 9 March 2009Performance 5 - 14 Mar 09

    ‘Having won an Olivier award in 2006 on its first outing at the Theatre Royal Stratford East, this 90-minute rush of energy has now transferred to the Barbican before embarking on a major national tour.’

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 6 March 2009Performance 24 & 25 Feb 09
