    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 23 January 2015Performance 22 & 23 January 2015

    There’s nothing very emotionally compelling here, but it’s probably enough that you’ve never seen anything like it before.

  7. BalletBoyz - Young Men - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Jeffery Taylor, Daily Express, Monday 19 January 2015Performance 14 - 18 January 2015

    The surprise of the evening was Matthew Rees who, dressed in black, rushes into what seemed to be a field hospital desperately comforting as many of his wounded comrades as he could. Your spirits rise and hope starts to build; then he shoots himself in the mouth. Acco… 

  8. Review: Gecko - Institute - Linbury Studio Theatre, part of London International Mime Festival

    Siobhan Murphy, Monday 19 January 2015 — Performance: 17 - 20 January 2015

    ...a deliriously dense, modernist swirl of ideas, whose loopy absurdist exuberance is anchored by some extraordinarily tight choreography & an intuitive understanding of physical comedy. Continue Reading

  9. BalletBoyz - Young Men - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, , Sunday 18 January 2015Performance 14 - 18 January 2015

    There are far too many sorrowful cradlings, sentimental pietàs and emptily anguished duets. The moment of death, endlessly reprised, is represented as a willowy, aestheticised folding to the stage. The brutal truth is that for all his evident sincerity of purpose, Pére…

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 16 January 2015Performance 14 - 18 January 2015

    If only Pérez’s choreography had been a little more focused, a little more condensed, the evening could have been an unequivocal triumph.

    Review: BalletBoyz - Young Men - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Friday 16 January 2015 — Performance: 14 - 18 January 2015

    This is a group of guys that look well capable of coming out on top in a bar room brawl but nonetheless dance together with a palpable gentleness and sensitivity. The occasional presence of women is a clever device. Continue Reading

  15. BalletBoyz - Young Men - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Neil Norman, , Thursday 15 January 2015Performance 14 - 18 January 2015

    Yet another depiction of wartime combat, Ivan Perez’ full-length ballet fails to discover a new language for a theme explored by every choreographer from MacMillan to Maliphant.
