  1. Nederlands Dans Theater 1 - Sehnsucht / Schmetterling - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Jeffery Taylor, Daily Express, Sunday 6 July 2014Performance 1 - 4 July 2014

    To fill the swelling, triumphal music, a 12-strong mixed ensemble, all naked to the waist and wearing baggy black pants, fill a now curtainless and colourless stage. The dance language of Sol Leon and Paul Lightfoot shows off the dancers’ classical background, decora… 

  2. Nederlands Dans Theater 1 - Sehnsucht / Schmetterling - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 4 July 2014Performance 1 - 4 July 2014

    Nederlands Dans Theater are a company who look like they’re always ready for a photoshoot. Great sets, chic clothes, dramatic lighting, strings of impressive poses and their focus firmly to the front. Couples dance together but they rarely look at each other, instead t…

  4. Nederlands Dans Theater 1 - Sehnsucht / Schmetterling - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Thursday 3 July 2014Performance 1 - 4 July 2014

    What both lack is clarity and focus. Sehnsucht is better, making a real impact at the start thanks to a lone, elegantly lit fellow on stage performing jagged but liquid-hipped balletic exercises…

    Thursday 3 July 2014 by Lucie Sheppard

    Tuesday 1 July was a brilliant day for some dance companies and organisations, but a terrible day for others … yes it’s the decision from the Arts Council England regarding who would be included in t… Continue Reading

    Review: Nederlands Dans Theater 1 - Sehnsucht / Schmetterling - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Tuesday 1 July 2014— Performance: 1 - 4 July 2014

    Unfailingly absorbing, enduringly profound, it is a work that somehow conveys the uplifting sense of optimism in the human spirit. Continue Reading

  7. Eastman - Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui – 4D - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Jeffery Taylor, Daily Express, Tuesday 1 July 2014Performance 23 & 24 June 2014

    Pure, with its alluring start, all white and misty, proved long, pretentious and lumpy. Despite a superbly powerful, loving performance from Vedbjorn Sundby it came across as a colossal juggling act by Cherkaoui anxious to prove adventurous and inventive. 

  8. Charleroi Danses - Kiss and Cry - Barbican Theatre

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Tuesday 1 July 2014Performance 25 - 28 June 2014

    In Kiss & Cry, the story of one woman and the loves and losses of her life is not just played out but created on stage in front of us. On a series of miniature sets, complete with tiny trees and dolls’ house furniture, Michèle Anne de Mey and Gregory Grosjean comm… 

  9. Rambert Dance Company - Rambert Event - Rambert Building

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Tuesday 1 July 2014Performance 28 June, 5 & 12 July 2014

    Created using chance principles, the music and dance only came together days before the performance, which leads to moments of serendipity — the unexpected conjunction of a poignant melody being played on the saw while a clan of dancers thunder across the floor is unex… 

  10. News: Louise Lecavalier - So Blue

    Tuesday 1 July 2014 by Lucie Sheppard

    Canadian Dancer and Choreographer Louise Lecavalier will be presenting her first piece of choreography at Southbank Centre on 2 July. She talks to Lyndsey Winship for an interview in the Evening Standard. “I… Continue Reading

  11. Arthur Pita - Nobody's Baby, The World’s Greatest Show - Greenwich Dance

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Financial Times, Tuesday 1 July 2014Performance 27 & 28 June 2014

    Pita’s constant shifts of mood and pace, sweetly reinforced by Frank Moon’s swingtime score, are proof of his choreographic versatility. The first act of the two-and-a-half-hour mini-marathon celebrates the novelty steps of the 1920s and 30s, but the second uses his … 

  12. Eastman - Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui – 4D - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Luke Jennings, Guardian, Tuesday 1 July 2014Performance 23 & 24 June 2014

    … gradually their movements and musical phrasing begin to align until their bodies are one, conjoined in the forest’s shadowy, ambiguous light. It’s a beautiful, resonant work.  

  13. Rambert Dance Company - Rambert Event - Rambert Building

    Press Review 5Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 1 July 2014Performance 28 June, 5 & 12 July 2014

    An acoustic-electric score of beautifully expressive intricacies comes from Radiohead drummer Philip Selway, along with Adem Ilhan and Quinta, while hanging behind and above the dancers are screen prints of Gerhard Richter’s 2006 Cage 1-6 – giant glowing panels o… 

  14. Greenwich + Docklands Festival - Frantic / The Bench - Greenwich

    Press Review 3Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Monday 30 June 2014Performance 20 - 22 June 2014

    Acrojou’s Frantic makes cunning use of the German gymnastic wheel in a neatly put together piece in which acrobatics become a metaphor for finding the balance in life.
