  1. Dutch National Ballet - Cinderella - London Coliseum

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 9 July 2015Performance 8 - 11 July 2015

    One of Christopher Wheeldon’s greatest assets is his taste in stage designers, and it’s worth seeing this Cinderella just for the combined visual sorcery of Julian Crouch and Basil Twist.

  3. Mark Baldwin & Ladysmith Black Mambazo - Inala - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 8 July 2015Performance 7 - 11 July 2015

    Some of the stronger dancers from the original show are no longer in the cast, including Rambert’s Dane Hurst. But his replacement, Jacob O’Connell, a winner in the BBC Young Dancer competition, is beautiful to watch, especially in a slow, animal solo, prowling c… 

  4. Mark Baldwin & Ladysmith Black Mambazo - Inala - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Wednesday 8 July 2015Performance 7 - 11 July 2015

    Inala is a show that enchants as much as it impresses. The choreography, by Rambert Dance Company director Mark Baldwin, fizzes with originality, and seamlessly fuses western-contemporary and traditional-African tropes.

  6. The Four Fridas - Greenwich & Docklands International Festival

    Press Review 3Catherine Usher, The Stage, Friday 3 July 2015Performance 1 - 4 July 2015

    As a representation of Kahlo’s life and work, the closing ceremony is rather perplexing, but, as a spectacle simply to savour, it is sensational.

    Press Review 2Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Friday 3 July 2015Performance 1 - 4 July 2015

    The piece is always at its best when it is most physical: the Shechter Junior dancers bring a muscular energy to the proceedings.

    Press Review 3Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard, Friday 3 July 2015Performance 1 - 4 July 2015

    In a recreation of an indigenous Mexican fertility ritual four women, suspended by their feet, “fly” around a 30-metre wooden pole. Goodness only knows what this has to do with Frida Kahlo, but it certainly looks beautiful.

    The Four Fridas - Greenwich & Docklands International Festival

    Sarah Kent, Friday 3 July 2015 — Performance: 1 - 4 July 2015

    'The Four Fridas' can’t decide if it’s an intimate portrait of a remarkable woman or a glorious display of pyrotechnics, so it tries to be both and doesn’t succeed as either. Continue Reading
