  2. Protein - Border Tales - The Place

    Press Review 2Donald Hutera, The Times, Friday 7 March 2014Performance 26 February - 15 March 2014

    Protein has, since its founding in 1997, developed a solid reputation for concocting performances that tickle the funnybone while stimulating the grey cells. For all of the above reasons I wish I could say I liked Border Tales more than I do.  

  3. Protein - Border Tales - The Place

    Press Review 3Louise Levene, Telegraph, Friday 7 March 2014Performance 26 February - 15 March 2014

    Not so much a “look at multi-cultural living in the UK today” as a simplistic, unnuanced parade of Aunt Sallies that makes shooting fish in a barrel look like big game hunting. Which is a pity, because the whole thing is superbly staged and performed.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 5 March 2014Performance 26 February - 15 March 2014

    Excellently performed by a multi-talented, international cast,Border Tales is a big, brave, cacophonous attempt to show what it means to live in multicultural Britain today.  

  7. Ijad Dance - In-Finite Space - The Vaults

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 5 March 2014Performance 4 - 8 March 2014

    IJAD Dance’s In-finite Space takes place underground, but still manages to be driven by Twitter. It mixes audience tweets with ideas of space and science from the medieval Arabic world to the present day.

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 3 March 2014Performance 1 - 8 March 2014

    Her footwork is astonishing, not just in its supersonic speed but also her precision accents — she creates melody as well as rhythm.  

  13. Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras - La Pepa - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 3 March 2014Performance 1 - 8 March 2014

    At the performance I saw, Baras even gestured questioningly at the audience a couple of times, as if puzzled why she hadn’t just hit the spot – because there was nothing wrong with her performance. Indeed, there is nothing wrong with the parts of La Pepa; it… 

  14. Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras - La Pepa - Sadler's Wells Theatre

    Press Review 4, Metro, Monday 3 March 2014Performance 1 - 8 March 2014

    A performer of understated magnetism, Baras works an audience as skilfully as she hitches her skirts and carves hypnotic circles in the air with her arms. She has that indefinable can’t-take-your-eyes-off-her quality.
