    Review: Peeping Tom - 32 rue Vandenbranden - Barbican Theatre

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Monday 2 February 2015 — Performance: 28 - 31 January 2015

    Conspicuously in evidence is a hefty dose of the slapstick-on-a-razor’s-edge-of-pathos and the episodic scene cycling that are hallmarks of Tanztheater, but the balance here between theatre and dance is awkward. Continue Reading

  6. Peeping Tom - 32 rue vandenbranden - The Barbican

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 30 January 2015Performance 28 - 31 January 2015

    The tone jumps from noir to horror to slapstick, all signalled by a seamless soundtrack. The skilful, elastic-bodied cast each dance solos in the snow, sharing a similar palette of convulsing, angsty distortions.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 28 January 2015Performance 26 & 27 January 2015

    Alston has also gone off-script, in an unlikely collaboration with hip hop dancer Ajani Johnson-Goffe. What this meeting of styles would look like was anyone’s guess. 

  12. Richard Alston Dance Company - Rejoice in the Lamb, Burning, Nomadic, Madcap - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Rachel Ward, Telegraph, Wednesday 28 January 2015Performance 26 & 27 January 2015

    Alston’s choreography is extremely contained and while it sometimes comes over as conventional, lacking in consequence, its classical beauty – steps rising and falling with the voice – fits well with Britten’s airy score.

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 28 January 2015Performance 26 & 27 January 2015

    It’s possibly one of the most gorgeous pieces he’s made, the slow, suspended chords of the organ reflected in the movement’s rich, curving spaciousness and the eccentrically vivid libretto transposed into funny and fleeting dance images.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 26 January 2015Performance 23 - 24 January 2015

    Odedra should trust in the fact that the most interesting thing on stage is always himself. 

  15. Compagnie 111 / Aurélien Bory / Kaori Ito – Plexus – Sadler’s Wells

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Guardian, Monday 26 January 2015Performance 22 & 23 January 2015

    Stéphane Ley’s sound, if at times over-amplified, recalls the “thousand twangling instruments” that hum about Caliban’s ears in The Tempest. In technical and design terms, Plexus is a masterclass.
