  1. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui in TeZukA at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 12 September 2011Performance 6 - 10 September 2011

    ‘The multiplicity is typical of Cherkaoui. He likes to spill, to let more-or-less unfiltered streams of consciousness wash through his work, and while the result is infinitely preferable to the shrink-wrapped theory packages that constitute so much new European dan… 

  2. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui in TeZukA at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Monday 12 September 2011Performance 6 - 10 September 2011

    ‘This new piece features all of Cherkaoui’s ingenuity and humanity but it lacks his humour and his usually expert handling of theatrical time and space.’

  4. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui in TeZukA at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 9 September 2011Performance 6 - 10 September 2011

    ‘There is a small duet that proposes (and with great skill) the emotional states of a priest and a boy he has abused, and this seems the only choreography that hints at Charkaoui’s gifts. For the rest, you find narrative confusion; astonishing projections;… 

  5. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui in TeZukA at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 9 September 2011Performance 6 - 10 September 2011

    ‘There are two compellingly intimate duets, but the best passages tend to be those where dance, music and video artist Taiki Ueda’s gorgeous projections knit most felicitously.’  

  6. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui in TeZukA at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 9 September 2011Performance 6 - 10 September 2011

    ‘Cherkaoui celebrates Tezuka, but he also wants to give us background to his life and art. It’s a messy blend of documentary and performance, using the artist’s characters and history as a springboard.’

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 9 September 2011Performance 6 - 10 September 2011

    ‘Plenty of life has been put into this large and ambitious work, but it hasn’t taken on a life of its own.’

    ‘There is something dizzying about the way their bodies communicate across a spectrum of effects, from rock-solid, bell-ankled stamps to the most evanescent incense-like curl of a finger. Even on a damp night on a musty stage in a theatre in Edinburgh, it was like …
