    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 11 July 2011Performance 5 - 9 July 2011

    ‘Lean as a whip, subtle as a snake, there is nobody – and no body – on the dance stage as fascinating as Sylvie Guillem.Now 46, she may have relinquished the classical roles that made her name, but her sideways step into contemporary work has seen no di… 

  2. Sylvie Guillem in 6000 miles away at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 11 July 2011Performance 5 - 9 July 2011

    ‘Movement develops, changes character or direction in mid-phrase, goads academism into innovation, hints at emotion – and Guillem and Le Riche are its superlative exponents. Here is a developed classicism of fascinating implications and extreme difficulty,… 

  3. Sylvie Guillem in 6000 miles away at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 11 July 2011Performance 5 - 9 July 2011

    ‘Both Guillem and Le Riche have sublime plastique, that coalescence of softness, flexion and tempered steel that gives movement its flow. Forsythe understands, perhaps better than any other living choreographer, how to play off this quality.’

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 8 July 2011Performance 5 - 9 July 2011

    ‘Where Forsythe emphasises Guillem’s razor-lightness, her ability to move each muscle separately and beautifully, Ek uses her humour, her dramatic weight.’  

  8. Sylvie Guillem in 6000 miles away at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 8 July 2011Performance 5 - 9 July 2011

    ‘Guillem has an impressive commitment to new choreography, her taste often running to quiet, even grungy, contemporary work. Here, there’s an intriguing contradiction between low-key dance and the splash of a major star.’
