    “The camerawork is close, the combination of Yanowsky’s long form and Franzen’s compact dynamism is explosive.” Our reviewer on the film commissioned by the Royal Ballet for Deloitte Ignite 2014 Continue Reading

    Review: Ivan Blackstock - A Harlem Dream - Young Vic

    Matthew Paluch, Monday 27 October 2014— Performance: 20 October - 1 November 2014

    Blackstock’s choreography is like his own performance of it: poetic. Continue Reading

    Press Review 4Jeffery Taylor, Express, Sunday 26 October 2014Performance 18 October - 12 November 2014

    Osipova all but steals the show. Snapping at her heels however was a remarkably vivid performance from Francesca Hayward as the young Vera, definitely one to watch.

    Press Review 4Jeffery Taylor, Express, Sunday 26 October 2014Performance 18 October 2014

    And how refreshing to see youth take on the challenges of a whole evening’s programme with sharp professionalism, absolutely getting every nuance while dancing with a confident technical edge.

    Press Review 3Katie Columbus, The Stage, Friday 24 October 2014Performance 20 October - 1 November 2014

    It’s great to see this kind of dance at close quarters as it’s more about style and feeling the beat than technical perfection. It’s a real shame there’s just not more of this kind of dancing to balance with the story. 

  6. Ivan Blackstock - A Harlem Dream - Young Vic

    Press Review 3Sarah Crompton, Telegraphy, Friday 24 October 2014Performance 20 October - 1 November 2014

    Ivan Blackstock is a rising star of British dance, a man who combines hip hop with contemporary with a smart sprinkling of commercial sense. So it was clever of Dance Umbrella to co-commission, with the Young Vic, this substantial piece of dance theatre which gives him a… 

  7. Ivan Blackstock - A Harlem Dream - Young Vic

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 24 October 2014Performance 20 October - 1 November 2014

    You can pack a lot into 50 minutes: hip hop, Lindy hop, Charleston and tap dance; text, music, comedy, racial politics, magic, even. It’s credit to choreographer/director Ivan Blackstock that this Harlem Renaissance-inspired concoction dances along easily with flow and… 

  8. Royal Ballet - Ashton mixed bill - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4, Telegraph, Friday 24 October 2014Performance 18 October - 12 November 2014

    The ballet made the perfect conclusion to a pretty exceptional evening. Romany Pajdak gave a glorious impression of Isadora Duncan in Five Brahms Waltzes in the Manner of Isadora Duncan, and it is always wonderful to think of that direct line which stretches from Duncan …

  10. Tao Dance Theatre - 6 & 7 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 21 October 2014Performance 20 & 21 October 2014

    6… begins with a stage almost entirely obscured by smoke. A single, bowed note sounds continuously, and overhead shafts of light come and go, like the sun repeatedly trying and not quite managing to penetrate clouds. 

  11. Tao Dance Theatre - 6 & 7 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 21 October 2014Performance 20 & 21 October 2014

    Most of the choreographic action is concentrated on the tilting, circling, rippling action of their upper bodies. But in the hazy, flickering light that plays over them, they shape-shift into other worlds…

    Review: Royal Ballet - Ashton mixed bill - Royal Opera House

    Graham Watts, Monday 20 October 2014— Performance: 18 October - 12 November 2014

    The Royal Ballet demonstrate "a sophisticated and unparalleled command of the Ashton repertoire. All is at it should be." Continue Reading

  13. 'Trip The Light Fantastic Toe' - The Place, 17 October 2104

    Review: TripSpace Projects - Trip The Light Fantastic Toe - The Place

    Alice Robotham, Monday 20 October 2014— Performance: 17 October 2014

    We knew we were in for an adventure from the off. Being lead through back stage corridors of The Place certainly helped, especially since the route was littered with dancers sprawled on the stairs or, playing the… Continue Reading

    Review: Jérôme Bel / Theater Hora - Disabled Theatre - Shaw Theatre

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Monday 20 October 2014— Performance: 14 & 15 October 2014

    To be honest I was a bit worried about the title - but by the end I was embarrassed by my initial approach to what turned out to be an intelligent, startlingly original & deeply human work of art. Continue Reading
