  2. Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan - Songs of the Wanderers - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 9 May 2016Performance 4 - 7 May 2016

    It’s a gorgeous and glacially paced work, lit in golden tones on a stage blanketed with rice, resonating with the heavy harmonies of Georgian folk song.

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 9 May 2016Performance 4 - 27 May 2016

    McRae’s portrayal is brilliant; his dancing is eloquent in its anguish, and we sense every beat of his lonely, vengeful heart.

    Whether they are slowly traversing the stage, their bodies contracted, gnarled branches in hand, or thrashing in the rice sending it swirling across the floor, each action is as pure and meaningful as the image of the monk, stood lost in meditation.

    Press Review 4Neil Norman, The Stage, Friday 6 May 2016Performance 4 - 27 May 2016

    The reanimation scene is worth the price of admission with MacFarlane’s set snapping, crackling and popping as strange steampunk galvanic devices descend from above and bubble green liquid at the side.

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 6 May 2016Performance 4 - 27 May 2016

    As a whole, Frankenstein shows impressive confidence. Scarlett is assured in his use of a large cast, and there are beautifully shaped dances.

    Press Review 1Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 6 May 2016Performance 4 - 27 May 2016

    Liam Scarlett is a talented abstract, neoclassical choreographer, but his Frankenstein is the least enjoyable full-evening work I have ever seen the Royal Ballet perform.

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 6 May 2016Performance 4 - 27 May 2016

    In Liam Scarlett’s new Frankenstein for the Royal Ballet, it’s not the monster who gets top billing. Instead, Victor Frankenstein (Federico Bonelli) and his fiancée Elizabeth (Laura Morera) are at the centre of the story.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 6 May 2016Performance 4 - 27 May 2016

    There’s a very powerful work at the heart of this ballet, yet Scarlett needs to cut and cut again to set it free. And given the amount of money that was spent on the production, the Royal should insist that he does.

    Graham Watts, Thursday 5 May 2016 — Performance: 4 - 27 May 2016

    Scarlett is pursuing his own genre of dramatic ballet with a psychological edge and - in so doing – he is adding to a unique heritage at the Royal Ballet... Continue Reading

  13. Breakin' Convention '16 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Zoë Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 4 May 2016Performance 30 April - 2 May 2016

    Breakin’ Convention, now in its 13th year, is one of the great success stories of dance venue Sadler’s Wells.  

  14. Breakin' Convention '16 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 4 May 2016Performance 30 April - 2 May 2016

    With a bounce in their steps and looks of mischief, they twizzle into pretzels, play amazing tricks with floating hats and turn their limbs into skipping ropes and Hula Hoops. 

  15. Pablo Bronstein - Historical Dances in An Antique Setting - Tate Britain

    Press Review Laura Cumming, Observer, Wednesday 4 May 2016Performance 26 April - 9 October 2016

    This is also the era of voguing, and sure enough the dancers are going through the poses with mannered solemnity. But they are also imitating the sprezzatura of the Renaissance aristocrat who has read Castiglione’s famous The Book of the Courtier.
