  2. Rambert - Frames / Four Elements / Dark Arteries - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Hanna Weibye, The Arts Desk, Friday 15 May 2015Performance 12 - 16 May 2015

    Whitley, whose Frames opened the evening, is a pretty successful young choreographer… There’s no doubt he can come up with exciting movement, but there’s also no doubt he needs refining before he really makes the big time.

    Press Review 3Sarah Frater, The Stage, Thursday 14 May 2015Performance 12 - 16 May 2015

    With the revival of Lucinda Child’s Four Elements, you wonder why the American dance maker is so little seen in the UK. Made for Rambert in 1990, Elements is a mesmerising piece of modern classicism that evokes water, earth, air and fire without conspicuously portraying them.

    It’s only in the long middle section evoking the miners’ embattled history that Dark Arteries realises its potential – and does so magnificently, in churning, seething ensembles of dance, shot through with heart-racingly combative virtuosity.

    Where Dark Arteries aims for imposing and misses, Alexander Whitley’s Frames just looks aimless.

    Graham Watts, Wednesday 13 May 2015 — Performance: 12 - 16 May 2015

    While this was far from being among my favourite Rambert programmes, I continue to admire the company’s remarkable dancers and applaud Mark Baldwin for his bold, commissioning policies... Continue Reading

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 13 May 2015Performance 11, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 23 26 May 2015

    Wayne McGregor’s new Woolf Works glows with ambition, crowned by Alessandra Ferri’s charismatic central performance.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 13 May 2015Performance 11, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 23 26 May 2015

    The movement is more classical and more lyrical than the twisted extremes McGregor is known for, but the bodies are still in constant motion, exactly like Woolf’s stream-of-consciousness prose. 

  9. Salim-Sulaiman - Beyond Bollywood - London Palladium

    Press Review 2Michael Billington, Guardian, Tuesday 12 May 2015Performance 15 May - 18 June 2015

    As the stage becomes a riot of colour and swirling movement, I found myself wishing, as with last year’s tango show Dance ’Til Dawn, that the creators had offered us pure spectacle and ditched the narrative framework. 

  10. BBC Young Dancer 2015 - The Final - Sadler's Wells & BBC2

    Press Review 4Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Tuesday 12 May 2015Performance 9 May 2015

    For me, the two contemporary dancers were best in their own solos, which showcased Scott’s whiplash fearlessness and Jacob O’Connell’s rangy technique and commanding presence; but they were under-served by the somewhat aimless choreography of their new solos.

    Press Review 5Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 12 May 2015Performance 11, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 23 26 May 2015

    Woolf Works is not a perfect ballet… But in the depth and the scope of its ambitions, and in its haunting meditations on memory, madness and time, it takes both McGregor – and the concept of the three-act ballet – to a brave and entirely exhilarating new place.

    Press Review 2Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 12 May 2015Performance 11, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 23 26 May 2015

    Throughout Monday’s opening night, the stellar cast – which also included Natalia Osipova as Orlando and Steven McRae as someone-or-other – danced with uniform brilliance.

    Reducing Steven McRae and Natalia Osipova to their bendiness is a criminal waste: what about their musical intelligence, their dramatic power, to say nothing of their elite training in the absurdly difficult art form of classical ballet?
