    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 21 October 2014Performance 20 & 21 October 2014

    6… begins with a stage almost entirely obscured by smoke. A single, bowed note sounds continuously, and overhead shafts of light come and go, like the sun repeatedly trying and not quite managing to penetrate clouds. 

  2. Tao Dance Theatre - 6 & 7 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 21 October 2014Performance 20 & 21 October 2014

    Most of the choreographic action is concentrated on the tilting, circling, rippling action of their upper bodies. But in the hazy, flickering light that plays over them, they shape-shift into other worlds…

    Review: TripSpace Projects - Trip The Light Fantastic Toe - The Place

    Alice Robotham, Monday 20 October 2014— Performance: 17 October 2014

    We knew we were in for an adventure from the off. Being lead through back stage corridors of The Place certainly helped, especially since the route was littered with dancers sprawled on the stairs or, playing the… Continue Reading

    Review: Jérôme Bel / Theater Hora - Disabled Theatre - Shaw Theatre

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Monday 20 October 2014— Performance: 14 & 15 October 2014

    To be honest I was a bit worried about the title - but by the end I was embarrassed by my initial approach to what turned out to be an intelligent, startlingly original & deeply human work of art. Continue Reading

    Review: Birmingham Royal Ballet - Shadows of War - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Monday 20 October 2014— Performance: 17 & 18 September 2014

    This triple bill of works lurking obscurely within the shadows of war provided a surprisingly eclectic range of entertainment - and the reintroduction of an icon of British ballet history.. Continue Reading

  8. Royal Ballet - Ashton mixed bill - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Laura Thompson, Telegraph, Monday 20 October 2014Performance 18 October - 12 November 2014

    But the glory of this bill is Symphonic Variations: plotless, rigorous, sunlit and sublime. In the lead pairing, Marianela Núñez and Vadim Muntagirov were about as good as art gets.

    Review: Rocío Molina - Bosque Ardora - Barbican Theatre

    Graham Watts, Friday 17 October 2014— Performance: 16 - 18 October, 2014

    The traditional fast, percussive steps and spiralling turns of flamenco were ever-present but so were plenty of contemporary extras, for example in alien, angular, repetitive movements of the arm, largely bent in… Continue Reading

    Press Review 3Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 17 October 2014Performance 14 & 15 October 2014

    … seven of them perform solos of their own devising, and the mood becomes more animated. The spectators join in, making their own rhythms and the dances themselves range from old-fashioned free dance, to a kind of physical rap with a spinning chair… 

  12. Birmingham Royal Ballet - Beauty and the Beast / Shadows of War - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Rachel Ward, Telegraph, Friday 17 October 2014Performance 17 & 18 October, 2014

    (Delia) Mathews’s flighty grace and shapely patterns give Belle a more inquisitive, rather than innocent, nature, while Iain Mackay as the Beast is powerful in stature but without macho excess – his aggression and vulnerability is shown vividly through Bintley’s co… 

  13. Rocio Molina - Bosque Ardora - Barbican Theatre

    Press Review 4Zoë Anderson, Independent, Friday 17 October 2014Performance 16 - 18 October, 2014

    She prowls in an animal mask, or dances in steely unison with Eduardo Guerrero and Fernando Jiménez, all curling hands and scything kicks. 

  14. Rocio Molina - Bosque Ardora - Barbican Theatre

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 17 October 2014Performance 16 - 18 October, 2014

    We see Molina… as the mythological Teumessian fox, her faced hidden by a long, snouty mask, limbs tensed in witchily hieratic shapes … music recedes to a haunting background atmosphere and at others it is a roaring beast of a sound, whirling and stamping like…

    Press Review 5Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 17 October 2014Performance 16 - 18 October, 2014
