    On seeing Cradle to Grave, an exhibition by the Pharmacopeia collective at the British Museum, dANTE or dIE directors Daphne Attias and Terry O’Donovan were surprised to find the average UK citizen will ta… Continue Reading

  2. Re:Bourne - New Adventures in Lord of the Flies at Theatre Royal, Glasgow

    Press Review Mark Fisher, Guardian, Monday 7 March 2011Performance March 2011

    ‘The great accomplishment of the production is its seamless integration of amateur and professional dancers.’  

  3. Northern Ballet in Cleopatra at Touring & coming to Sadler's Wells in May

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 7 March 2011Performance March 2011

    ‘Using a minimalist set with detail added by digital projection, the ballet moves at impressive speed from scene to scene.’  

  4. Northern Ballet in Cleopatra at Touring & coming to Sadler's Wells in May

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 7 March 2011Performance March 2011

    ‘In Northern Ballet’s new production, there are touches of pageantry, some strong performances and fluent designs, but the personal and political drives of its heroine rarely come into focus.’  

  5. Northern Ballet in Cleopatra at Touring & coming to Sadler's Wells in May

    Press Review Laura Thompson, Telegraph, Monday 7 March 2011Performance March 2011

    ‘Chief among Cleopatra‘s assets is its lead. Martha Leebolt won a National Dance Award in 2010 and it is easy to see why: she is a wonderfully eloquent, intelligent performer, who tackles her role with complete assurance.’  

  6. Siobhan Davies & Matthias Sperling in To Hand at Whitechapel Gallery

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 7 March 2011Performance March 2011

    ‘Zone out, and this can seem inconsequential. But zone in, and there’s an eerie sense of a strange, singular creature picking its way purposefully but pointlessly through an abandoned world, not unlike yourself.’  

  7. Bartabas & Ko Murobushi in The Centaur and the Animal at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 7 March 2011Performance 1 - 6 March 2011

    ‘The Centaur & The Animal has been at Sadler’s Wells for the week, and is a truly spooky affair: the stage shrouded in semi-darkness, from which silently-shod beasts loom and retreat, while a naked Butoh artist, 60-year-old Ko Murobushi, distorts his body… 

  8. Royal Ballet in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Louise Levene , Sunday Telegraph, Monday 7 March 2011Performance 2, 3, 9, 10, 15 March 2011

    ‘Tap-happy Steven McRae’s Mad Hatter was the highlight of the interminable 70-minute first act, and Zenaida Yanowsky’s manic Queen of Hearts dominated the pacier second half with a masterclass in balletic slapstick. Few other characters (including Simon… 

  9. Royal Ballet in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 7 March 2011Performance 2, 3, 9, 10, 15 March 2011

    ‘Only a curmudgeon would complain that it’s more of a show than a ballet, with its sweeping cinematic score, tap-dancing Mad Hatter, War Horse-style puppetry and dazzling digital projections – an eclecticism that harks back to a time when ballet product… 

  10. Royal Ballet in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 7 March 2011Performance 2, 3, 9, 10, 15 March 2011

    ‘Wheeldon’s casting of Cuthbertson, rather than one of the company’s established ballerinas, is inspired. With her hairband, willowy line and airy English style, she inhabits the role from the first.’ 

  11. Tilted Productions 'Masquerade'

  14. Royal Ballet in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 4 March 2011Performance 2, 3, 9, 10, 15 March 2011

    “Steven McRae was sensational as a tap-dancing Mad Hatter, Edward Watson was a suitably nervy White Rabbit, with Ricardo Cervera a zany March Hare.”  

  15. Bartabas & Ko Murobushi in The Centaur and the Animal at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Laura Thompson, Telegraph, Friday 4 March 2011Performance 1 - 6 March 2011

    “The most striking image comes when the third horse walks onstage alone, stands calmly beside a softly writhing Bartabas, then begins to nuzzle his arms. It is moving in a way which makes the emotion impossible both to define and to forget.”
