    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 22 April 2015Performance 16 April - 5 May 2015

    When Muntagirov is dancing his solo variations, he rises to moments of transcendence, his long legs and arms sustaining beautiful shapes in the air and finding their own music within the choreography.

    Add a plucky quintet of chickens, a decorous octet of friends, fine (if occasionally hurried) work from the corps and zesty playing from the pit, and you have an evening that effervesced from start to finish with life, love and laughter.

    Graham Watts, Friday 17 April 2015 — Performance: 15 - 18 April 2015

    There is a sense of foreboding throughout and it ends in an unusually abrupt and incomplete way... Despite several episodes of lighter intent, it remains uncompromisingly sinister and unsettling from first to last.  Continue Reading

  13. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Auf dem Gebirge hat man ein Geschrei gehört

    Press Review Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Thursday 16 April 2015Performance 15 - 18 April 2015

    The “mountain” is a stage covered in soil, and from this barren earth life springs — lives distilled to their eccentricities; behaviours stuck on repeat cycles. Bausch’s world is an ever-shifting collage, moving in a blink from comedy to tragedy, violence to poignance.

    Press Review 4Lise Smith, Londonist, Thursday 16 April 2015Performance 15 - 18 April 2015

    At a mere two hours plus interval, Auf dem Gebirge is one of the German choreographer’s more compact works. If you haven’t experienced the very particular theatrical magic of Tanztheater Wuppertal yet (and if you can get a ticket) this is a good place to start.

    Press Review 2Mark Monahan, , Thursday 16 April 2015Performance 15 - 18 April 2015

    In short, an all-too Bauschian mound of ideas, originality, darkness and tenderness – performed with passion and conviction by the late choregrapher’s troupe – that would have been so much more potent for a lot of ruthless trimming.
