    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 26 September 2014Performance 24 - 27 September 2014

    Set in an unspecified time, it’s a stark world of corrugated metal walls where the black-clad Capulet gang patrol ominously on Segways.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 26 September 2014Performance 24 - 27 September 2014

    The final image, in which all of Verona lies down in mourning for Romeo and Juliet, raising their legs in imitation of the lovers final pose, may be one of the oddest images you will see on stage. But it is vintage Ek in its power to haunt, to unsettle and to move.

    Press Review 4Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 26 September 2014Performance 24 - 27 September 2014

    The whole thing is danced with passion and panache, never more so than by Ana Laguna as the watchful nurse. Her scene with Mercutio and Benvolio, where she makes them jump over one another like circus tumblers, is the comic relief before the grim resolution…

    Review: Royal Swedish Ballet - Mats Ek's Juliet & Romeo - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Thursday 25 September 2014— Performance: 24 - 27 September 2014

    There is much to admire in the ingenuity of Ek's interpretation, not least in the intriguing imagery that makes this a compelling - if not also, often infuriating - spectacle. Continue Reading

    Lara Hayward, Monday 22 September 2014— Performance: 17 & 18 September 2014

    Press Review 4Neil Norman, The Stage, Monday 22 September 2014Performance 16 - 27 September 2014

    More tightly integrated than their previous outing, there is an organic, holistic feel to this triple bill, as if each choreographer worked from the same blueprint

    Press Review 3Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 22 September 2014Performance 16 - 27 September 2014

    …they all seem to feature an awful lot of what I can only describe as slow unfolding, in which these muscular young men pour themselves over each other’s bodies with admirable weightless fluidity. It looks very nice but it is not quite enough.

    In fact Metheus and The Murmuring are interchangeable, steps and music could be mixed and audiences would never know the difference. But as usual, the evening’s modern dance makers were lucky to have highly talented artists to work with.

    Josephine Leask, Monday 22 September 2014— Performance: 18 & 19 September 2014

    I remain unconvinced by the all-male format. All yang and no yin makes for a long evening. 

  15. The 7 Fingers - Sequence 8 - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 4Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard, Friday 19 September 2014Performance 16 September - 4 October 2014

    Multiple somersaults off a slimline Russian bar, classic cigar box-juggling taken to gravity-defying extremes, a seesaw double act that will make you gasp and then gasp again.
