  1. Royal Ballet in Limen / Marguerite And Armand / Requiem at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 14 October 2011Performance in rep 8 - 20 October 2011

    ‘Wayne McGregor’s Limen goes slack, while Frederick Ashton’s Marguerite and Armand gets a new lease of life.’  

  2. Review: Merce Cunningham Dance Company in Programme 2: Roaratorio at Barbican Theatre

    Libby Costello, Friday 14 October 2011— Performance: 4 - 8 October 2011

    2009 was a sad year for dance, with the passing of two great choreographers – Merce Cunningham and Pina Bausch. Whilst Tanztheater Wuppertal have continued a full schedule of performances, with company mem… Continue Reading

    Review: Rambert Dance Company in Season of New Choreography 2011 at The Place

    Lise Smith, Friday 14 October 2011— Performance: 11 & 12 October 2011

    Rambert is justly proud of its annual choreographic platform for works created by its own company dancers – young artists who devote their talents and personal time to appear in one another’s creatio… Continue Reading

  5. Emanuel Gat Dance in Brilliant Corners at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Flanders, ArtsDesk, Tuesday 11 October 2011Performance 10-11 Oct 2011

    “Gat is good at individuals working in relation to a whole, and his work is always interesting and watchable.” 

  6. Emanuel Gat Dance in Brilliant Corners at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 11 October 2011Performance 10-11 Oct 2011

    “The truth is that Gat’s intricate choreography doesn’t need all this metaphysical guff. The elliptical Brilliant Corners provides an intrigue of its own.”  

  7. Royal Ballet in Limen / Marguerite And Armand / Requiem at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 11 October 2011Performance in rep 8 - 20 October 2011

    “Limen may be one of McGregor’s most characteristically abstract ballets, yet it is also a moving evocation of mortality, and an affirmation of the power of the human imagination to inhabit its own, brief, visions of infinity.”  

  8. Royal Ballet in Limen / Marguerite And Armand / Requiem at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 11 October 2011Performance in rep 8 - 20 October 2011

    “It [Requiem] was superbly danced. For Leanne Benjamin at the very core of her artistry, to Marianela Núñez and their colleagues, vast respect.”  

  9. News: Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker v Beyonce

    Monday 10 October 2011

    “What’s rude is that they don’t even bother about hiding it. They seem to think they could do it because it’s a famous work … Am I honoured? Look I’ve seen local school kids d… Continue Reading

  10. Akram Khan in DESH at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 10 October 2011Performance 4 - 8 October 2011

    ‘Calling it a solo suggests small-scale. Yet this 80-minute staging is epic in its imaginative daring and gorgeous theatrical effects, taking the audience on a pilgrimage of its own, dodging traffic on manic city streets, climbing trees in search of honey, joining … 

  11. Akram Khan in DESH at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 10 October 2011Performance 4 - 8 October 2011

    ‘His dancing is mercurial, his characters superbly realised. With Desh, Khan returns to the theme of identity, a major strand in his work, with new depth and immediacy.’  

  12. Merce Cunningham Dance Company in Programme 2: Roaratorio at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 10 October 2011Performance 5 - 8 October 2011

    ‘What’s clearer is the sheer profligacy of its choreographic invention. Cunningham sends a caper of Irish dancing through the familiar steps of his vocabulary; so that in the midst of tightly angled jumps; high perched arabesques and closely patterned foot… 

  13. Merce Cunningham Dance Company in Programme 1: Pond Way / Second Hand / Antic Meet at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 10 October 2011Performance 5 - 8 October 2011

    ‘Essentially what’s missing from the evening is the man himself. Without him – and I suspect that he guessed that this would be so, and made plans accordingly – it’s a ghost company, bereft of its animating spirit. Sadly, Merce Cunningham ha… 

  14. Royal Ballet in Limen / Marguerite And Armand / Requiem at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Monday 10 October 2011Performance in rep 8 - 20 October 2011

    ‘Ashton’s gestures are lavish by today’s lower-key tastes, and Polunin could have toned these down a notch. Excepting this, he and Tamara Rojo as Marguerite were a compelling combination [Marguerite And Armand]. No less impressive was Lauren Cutherbe… 

  15. Merce Cunningham Dance Company in Programme 3: RainForest / BIPED at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 10 October 2011Performance 5 - 8 October 2011

    ‘Alongside Gavin Bryar’s swooning score, the company appear like gleaming, magical creatures, creating shapes that are at once abstract and full of emotion. It is utterly beautiful and entirely mysterious, the most eloquent testimony to a man whose works s…
