  3. Frauke Requardt and David Rosenberg - The Roof - Doon Street Car Park, LIFT

    Press Review 2Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard, Wednesday 11 June 2014Performance 22 May - 28 June 2014

    The piece is allegedly inspired by parkour, that thrilling discipline of free-running in urban spaces, but the parkour elements are weak to the point of negligible. The sole saving grace is Dave Price’s soundscape: we hear crunching gravel behind us and instinctively t…

    Press Review 3Sarah Hemming, Financial Times, Wednesday 11 June 2014Performance 22 May - 28 June 2014

    There is allegorical meat amid the running and fighting, although to deliver on its potential, the show would need to delve much more deeply and reveal something fresh. It’s pretty opaque in places and it’s not clear whether passages of mystical waffle are ironic ref…

    The audience stand in the middle of a specially constructed arena. An obstacle course of Toytown-style roofs, chimneys, platforms and performance spaces forms a track around which the hero must run and jump for his life… It should be thrilling but it’s oddly …

    Press Review 3Paul Taylor, Independent, Wednesday 11 June 2014Performance 22 May - 28 June 2014

    A jump-suited avatar and his foes leap across chasms in the circular makeshift roofscape and flips and tumbles as he fights his foes and progresses up the levels, wins rewards…

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Observer, Wednesday 11 June 2014Performance 31 May - 13 June 2014

    The curtain rises on a forest of Perspex rods shadowed to give the appearance of genome sequence data, and in between these we glimpse Natalia Osipova darting around in skimpy white. Any opportunity to see Osipova at work is fascinating, but despite its neuroscientific d…

    Lise Smith, Wednesday 11 June 2014— Performance: 5 & 6 June 2014

    In a world of abstract, plotless works that engage with themes drawn from mathematics & natural sciences, Houstoun is one of the few artists willing to give voice to passionately-held personal & political… Continue Reading

  12. Russell Maliphant - Still Current - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Financial Times, Sunday 8 June 2014Performance 5 - 7 June 2014

    Dickson Mbi’s hip-hop background gives him the physical control that Maliphant’s work demands and he coped brilliantly with the long, lead-booted back bends of the opening solo. There are no lifts, no holds in his duet with Carys Staton – indeed they barely touch …
