    Press Review 2Neil Norman, The Stage, Monday 4 July 2016Performance 29 June - 3 July 2016

    Extraordinary backbreaking lifts – one man supporting the two others – and Osipova curling herself backwards into an almost perfect c-shape are just two of the highlights. The rising wail of Sufi singers adds to the heady, perfumed physicality.

    Consummate storytellers, Cherkaoui and Osipova are well suited; his theatrical style gives her plenty of material to work with and her flawless control gives his movements a heightened feel.

    Press Review 2Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 4 July 2016Performance 29 June - 3 July 2016

    It has its moments; there’s a great scene where she’s standing, lost and distraught, at the side of the highway, illuminated by passing headlights. And there’s a sweetly tender sequence on a swing.

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 4 July 2016Performance 29 June - 3 July 2016

    There are outstanding moments – lifts in which her exceptional suppleness and strength create the illusion that she’s walking, flying or hovering over her partners’ bodies – but they leave us hungry to see more of what Osipova, and Polunin, might achieve.

    Press Review Anna Winter, Exeunt Magazine, Monday 4 July 2016Performance 29 June - 3 July 2016

    Osipova becomes a kind of mesmeric predator, stalking the stage, her arms rippling, crouching and leaping, her loose hair and limbs whipping and scoring space.

    Review: Natalia Osipova - Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui / Russell Maliphant / Arthur Pita - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Friday 1 July 2016 — Performance: 29 June - 3 July 2016

    Osipova delivers many layers of performance excellence to three very different vehicles.... Some of the movement may feel familiar but the delivery is certainly unique. Continue Reading

  11. LA Dance Project - Mixed Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 27 June 2016Performance 24 & 25 June 2016

    Hearts and Arrows proliferates, gorgeously, with staggered formations, braided currents, counterpoint and canon. It features superb performances, and comes close to being an excellent piece.

    Press Review 2Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 27 June 2016Performance 24 & 25 June 2016

    If Millepied’s choreography was an element it would be air, best demonstrated in the short piece Hearts & Arrows, danced to a Philip Glass string quartet. The dancers sweep through phrases with spritely leaps; contemporary dance with ballet’s poise and lightness.

    Press Review 2Neil Norman, The Stage, Monday 27 June 2016Performance 24 & 25 June 2016

    In spite of an agitated liveliness in the movement, neither of these pieces sings with originality. Hearts and Arrows flirts with high-school cheerleading as girls are tossed into the air to the repetitive surge of Philip Glass’ String Quartet No 3 (Mishima)

    In other circumstances, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s 'Harbor Me' would have seemed a rather unremarkable piece from the inventive Belgian choreographer. Here, it was a highlight... Continue Reading

    Press Review 2Zoë Anderson, Independent, Monday 27 June 2016Performance 24 & 25 June 2016

    Millepied’s choreography draws on classical ballet technique, particularly in the footwork. It also suggests the influence of Mark Morris in its springy vocabulary and same sex duets.
