    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Thursday 11 November 2010Performance 9 - 13 November 2010

  2. Rambert Dance Company in Awakenings/Hush/Cardoon Club at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 11 November 2010Performance 9 - 13 November 2010

    ‘Yet while the piece (Henrietta Horn’s Cardoon Club) revels in its own high-jinks pastiche, its shimmies and high kicks are all pinned to an austere, structural logic, with the moves sometimes stripped back to pure form and pattern. It’s like minimal… 

  3. Rambert Dance Company in Awakenings/Hush/Cardoon Club at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Thursday 11 November 2010Performance 9 - 13 November 2010

    ‘We see the sufferers, trapped in frozen poses of catatonia, or released into fierce convulsions. We see their need for freedom, emotional as well as physical, and the piece – dominated by a performance from Jonathan Goddard of searing truth – tugs a…

  8. Balé de Rua at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 8 November 2010Performance 2 - 20 November 2010

    ‘Three centuries of slavery, poverty and struggle doesn’t sound like anything to sing and dance about. But this is also a story of resilience, and there’s no doubting the fighting spirit of the show’s 14 strapping male dancer-percussionists, its l… 

  9. Siobhan Davies in ROTOR at Siobhan Davies Studios

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 8 November 2010Performance 3 - 14 November 2010

    ‘At the hub of Rotor is a piece by Davies based on a line of dancers perambulating round a central spot, like the hand of a clock. The monotony is broken only when they introduce disturbances which create kinks, dodges and swirls. It’s a bracingly simple idea… 

  10. Siobhan Davies in ROTOR at Siobhan Davies Studios

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 8 November 2010Performance 3 - 14 November 2010

    ‘The creations of the British choreographer Siobhan Davies have always been marked by an intense thoughtfulness, an interest not only in movement itself but in the ideas it can spark.’  

  11. Royal Ballet in Sylvia at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 8 November 2010Performance in rep until 26 November 2010

    ‘The Royal Ballet are not on top of Sylvia. It is an extravagant work that needs the discipline of style, something this reconstruction rarely pulls off.’  

  12. Royal Ballet in Sylvia at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 8 November 2010Performance in rep until 26 November 2010

    ‘For anyone aware of signs and portents, those first blazing horn-calls of Sylvia on Wednesday night were an indication that all was not well. Raucous, they were prelude to a revival of this delicious confection that seemed a cross between a grudge-match and Car… 

  13. Royal Ballet in Sylvia at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 8 November 2010Performance in rep until 26 November 2010

    ‘If Sylvia is to carry an audience, its style and performance pitch must be precise. Of the ensemble, only Yuhui Choe and Samantha Raine seemed fully sympathetic to the spun sugar of Ashton’s choreography, and to the Ashtonian notion of enchantment as an accr… 

  14. The Featherstonehaughs in Edits at Village Underground

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 8 November 2010Performance 2 - 4 November 2010

    ‘The process, and the cross-dressing, highlight the extreme artificiality of the medium. Are the results dance? Well, you tell me, Anderson seems to be saying.’
