    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 4 November 2014Performance 3 - 8 November 2014

    Sometimes, the gracefully compact Khan and the more rapier-like Galván meet halfway in a kind of flat-palmed, kathak-flamenco hybrid: intense physical dialogues in which Khan channels some of Galván’s uncompromising virilty, while Galván borrows a dash of Khan’s m…

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 4 November 2014Performance 3 - 8 November 2014

    Stamping out a dialogue of percussive rhythms – Khan barefoot with jangling ankle bells, Galván in heeled flamenco shoes – the two men look as though they won’t give up until one of them falls, exhausted, to the floor.

    But the story is mainly an excuse to display the expertise of Vincent and Flavia. They work their way through the rumba, the samba, the foxtrot and the paso doble before finally giving us the tango we’ve all been waiting for.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 3 November 2014Performance 28 October - 1 November 2014

    But the best is left until last. If the three previous works come, to an extent, from the same world, Canadian Crystal Pite’s Polaris shifts to another dimension.Pite had to come up with a big idea to match the eponymous score, which is cinematic in scope, sci-fi in to…

    Press Review 4Jeffery Taylor, Express, Sunday 2 November 2014Performance 28 October - 15 November 2014

    But the whole cast has the secret of how to turn a martial discipline into a fantastical dance. The story, as if it mattered, is of how a family’s three generations rub along, sometimes the wrong way, but always with humour while simultaneously turning mechanical exerc…

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 2 November 2014Performance 28 October - 15 November 2014

    When Rosie Heafford, Alexandrina Hemsley and Helena Webb were contemporary dance students at Trinity Laban, they’d ask their fathers to watch performances. The dads were baffled. So the daughters invited them into a rehearsal studio…

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Sunday 2 November 2014Performance 28 October - 1 November 2014

    Polaris shows the talented Pite working at an exceptional level of confidence. It also reminds us that someone (Millepied perhaps) needs to commission Adès to write a designated dance score.
