  1. Immortal Tango - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 2Neil Norman, The Stage, Monday 7 March 2016Performance 1 - 19 March 2016

    As always, the simplest duets are the most effective, including a male-on-male sequence that is electrifying. 

  2. Immortal Tango - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 2Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 7 March 2016Performance 1 - 19 March 2016

    It is a head-spinning mix of cabaret, variety, rock gig, pantomime, cruise-ship entertainment and fantasy fashion parade. 

  3. Akram Khan Company - Kaash - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 7 March 2016Performance 3 - 5 March 2016

    These dancers are strong. It’s telling that the two most striking women, London twins Kristina and Sadé Alleyne, both originally trained as athletes, and then in hip hop dance. 

  4. Akram Khan Company - Kaash - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Zoë Anderson, Independent, Monday 7 March 2016Performance 3 - 5 March 2016

    If the geometry is good, the individual dances are thrilling. Ripples of movement curl through the dancers’ bodies.  

  5. Akram Khan Company - Kaash - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 7 March 2016Performance 3 - 5 March 2016

    The core of Khan’s vocabulary is here – the whiplash speeds and silken arms, the percussive richness of bare feet against the floor, but some of the material has been reworked to reflect the stylistic diversity of its new cast.

  11. Print Room Dance Company - Terra - The Coronet

    Press Review 4Rachel Elderkin, The Stage, Wednesday 2 March 2016Performance 23 February - 12 March 2016

    Terra is the final work in choreographer Hubert Essakow’s trilogy exploring the classical elements of water, fire and earth. In his latest piece, he draws on the primitive connection we have to the physical surroundings of our world. 

  12. Mark Bruce Company - The Odyssey - Wilton's Music Hall

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 2 March 2016Performance 23 February - 19 March 2016

    Music from Mark Lanegan to Mozart drives choreography that ranges from sinister tap-dancing to brutishly erotic duets.  

  13. Mark Bruce Company - The Odyssey - Wilton's Music Hall

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Observer, Wednesday 2 March 2016Performance 23 February - 19 March 2016

    The choreography is strong, a potent blend of expressionism and deft, neoballetic footwork.  

  14. Royal Ballet - Giselle - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Zoë Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 2 March 2016Performance 26 February - 15 April 2016

    Peter Wright’s production returns in fine shape, its tale of betrayed love, death and forgiveness lucidly told. 

  15. Print Room Dance Company - Terra - The Coronet

    Press Review 3Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 2 March 2016Performance 23 February - 12 March 2016

    The dancers are skilled and highly watchable, right down to 11-year-old Jessica Chalmers, who joins them later on. It’s only towards the end that the piece really gels theatrically but when the choreography comes into its own, it can be riveting.
