  1. Bartabas & Andrés Marín - Golgota - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 15 March 2016Performance 14 - 21 March 2016

    Press Review 2Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 15 March 2016Performance 14 - 21 March 2016

    The four horses in Bartabas’s Golgota are handsome, glossy and very patient. They need to be, given how much heavy-handed symbolism goes on around their well-trained heads. This equestrian dance production is a strange mixture of pompous theatre and horsey skill.

    Press Review 2Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 15 March 2016Performance 14 - 21 March 2016

    It’s not often that you see a total of 26 legs on a dance stage, but only three people. Then again, Golgota – which takes its name from the site of the Crucifixion – is a very unusual show indeed.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 14 March 2016Performance 23 February - 19 March 2016

    Music from Mark Lanegan to Mozart drives choreography that ranges from sinister tap-dancing to brutishly erotic duets.

    Press Review Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 14 March 2016Performance 10 & 11 March 2016

    . . . what’s incredible is that you can see the language running through their bodies, their gestures like utterances, with speechlike rhythms, rise and fall, statements and questions, garrulous runs and pauses for thought.

    Press Review 2Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 14 March 2016Performance 10 & 11 March 2016

    De Keersmaeker’s movement vocabulary is, at its best, both ingenious and subtle, and at moments she conjures images that illuminate the bare stage.

    Press Review 5Neil Norman, The Stage, Friday 11 March 2016Performance 10 & 11 March 2016

    …the final sequence as he is hauled aloft feet first into the air, arms outstretched, is both crucifixion and resurrection combined in one indelible image. Ecce homo. Behold the man.
