    Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is a well established presence on the contemporary dance scene, but one who works on the raw outskirts of the austere. 'En Atendant', the first in a matching pair of works be… Continue Reading

    The basic concept – the moving figure frozen by the sculptor’s hands then reanimated by the choreographer’s imagination – is enduringly fruitful and Rodin offers a rich seam of material.

    Press Review 4Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 7 November 2012Performance 5 & 6 November 2012

    En Atendant is demanding of its audience. If your attention wanders, you may lose your grip on it altogether. But its orchestration of structural sophistication, intimate detail and sweeping vision is exceptional, especially at the end, as the light fades and one naked…

    But you can bet that just as your patience is being tested, as you fear we’re veering into wilful pretension, something sublime will happen.

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 6 November 2012Performance 5 & 6 November 2012

    De Keersmaeker’s dances can be a strange mix of wild and pedantic, tightly patterned but unexpected. You have to wait a long while between such moments.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 5 November 2012Performance 2 - 4 November 2012

    The performers snap from one turn to the next in exuberant, elegant style, but the drawback with this format is that it’s never more than the sum of its routines.

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 5 November 2012Performance 3 - 14 November 2012

    Anyone who queries ballet’s viability as a 21st-century art form would find their answer in this programme – and not only in the quality of the choreography and music. This is work that elicits fabulously alert dancing at every level, from principal all the way…

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 5 November 2012Performance 2 - 4 November 2012

    It’s a show that tickles the eyeballs, and there’s only one scene that gets under the skin: an aerial lovers’ tiff where the couple are bound to each other by ropes that (like their ties to each other) allow them to fly and yet also drag them down to earth.

    Scarlett uses classical vocabulary, with a distinctive response to the music, bringing out the rhythms with an unexpected dip or squirm.

    Press Review 4Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 5 November 2012Performance 3 - 14 November 2012

    Viscera shows Scarlett’s young, impressive talent responding with an unfailing elegance to Liebermann’s writing.

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 4 November 2012Performance 29 -31 October 2012

    But beauty’s a given with Maliphant, and his choreographic text is too referential, and perhaps too deferential, for us to gain much purchase…In the second half, though, Maliphant escapes his source material and remote past becomes vibrant present.
