  1. Rambert Dance Company in Stand and Stare at Lowry, coming to Sadler's Wells in November

    Press Review Lyndsey Whinship, Guardian, Friday 6 October 2006Performance Sep

    ‘Bhuller captures Lowry’s recognisable themes – the faceless tides of people, the workaday gloom, the unfussy figures – without mimicking the popular canvases.’  

  2. Rambert Dance Company in Stand and Stare at Lowry, coming to Sadler's Wells in November

    Press Review Allen Robertson, Times, Friday 6 October 2006Performance Sep

    ‘The Lowry commissioned Stand and Stare as a combined celebration of two historic dates: Rambert was founded in 1926, Lowry died in 1976. The result is an impressive half-hour piece for 19 dancers’  

  3. Cathy Marston Project in Mixed Bill at Linbury Theatre at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 6 October 2006Performance

    ‘Originally made in 2001, Traces is one of her best thought-out pieces.’  

  4. Nigel Charnock in Frank at The Place

    Lisa Haight, Friday 6 October 2006 — Performance: 2 Oct

    Nigel Charnock’s work always makes me laugh and Frank was no exception. A solo show which was a cross between dance and cabaret, Frank was witty, thought provoking, laugh out loud funny, with a few good da… Continue Reading

  5. Rosas, Richard Alston Dance Company, Akram Khan Company in Dance to Music by Steve Reich - A Triple Bill at Barbican Theatre

    Marion Jones, Friday 6 October 2006 — Performance: 28 - 30 September

    Dance Umbrella and the Barbican’s Steve Reich season came together at the Barbican to create a well-conceived and thoughtful evening that aimed to bear witness to the variety of Steve Reich’s work an… Continue Reading

  6. Rosas, Richard Alston Dance Company, Akram Khan Company in Dance to Music by Steve Reich - A Triple Bill at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Allen Robertson, Times, Tuesday 3 October 2006Performance 28 - 30 September

    ‘Spinning through counterpoint and tight canon, Khan and his fellow dancers power their way through Reich like sharp knives slicing butter.’  

  7. Ballet Boyz in encore at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Tuesday 3 October 2006Performance 26 Sep-1 Oct

    ‘they use film so well, introducing each number with cocky comments that demystify the process of dance and reveal the lively chemistry of their enduring friendship.’  

  8. Rosas, Richard Alston Dance Company, Akram Khan Company in Dance to Music by Steve Reich - A Triple Bill at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 3 October 2006Performance 28 - 30 September

    ‘In Richard Alston’s appealing new work, three men dip and wind around each other, as upper bodies reach into arched, sculptural poses.’  

  9. Ballet Boyz in encore at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 3 October 2006Performance 26 Sep-1 Oct

    ‘Rafael Bonachela’s Mandox, Bandox is self-consciously modern. A line of lights blazes from the back of the stage, changing colour. The steps are fast, athletic and empty.’  

  10. Ballet Boyz in encore at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 3 October 2006Performance 26 Sep-1 Oct

    ‘I was just beginning to wonder whether Nunn and Trevitt would ever regain the brusque togetherness they achieved in their days with Russell Maliphant, when they did exactly that.’ 

  11. Merce Cunningham Dance Company in Ocean at The Roundhouse

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 3 October 2006Performance 21-24 Sep

    ‘This dance has nothing to do with emotion, and it’s not an easy ride. Yet its rigour seems to uncover some super-expressive absolute. Worth the pain, just.’ 

  12. Rosas, Richard Alston Dance Company, Akram Khan Company in Dance to Music by Steve Reich - A Triple Bill at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 3 October 2006Performance 28 - 30 September

    ‘De Keersmaeker, who dances this piece with Tale Dolven, has also brilliantly understood the magic in Reich’s austerity. By introducing subtly shifting rhythms into the choreography, she makes the dance shimmer over the music to hallucinatory effect.’  

  13. Rosas, Richard Alston Dance Company, Akram Khan Company in Dance to Music by Steve Reich - A Triple Bill at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 3 October 2006Performance 28 - 30 September

    “At the Barbican, the music of Steve Reich is the focus of an imaginative programme bringing together the talents of three dance-makers.” 

  14. The Place Prize Final at Robin Howard Dance Theatre, The Place

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 3 October 2006Performance 20-30 Sep

    “Quick! by Nina Rajarani, performed at stunning speed by four male Bharatanatyam dancers in suits and ties, shows the strains and pressures of the business day. To a deafening torrent of tabla-runs, Rajarani throws in faster and faster routines. The pace is insane,… 

  15. Ballet Boyz in encore at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 3 October 2006Performance 26 Sep-1 Oct

    “Trevitt, Nunn and Panchenko don’t conceal the ageing process; they lay it open for our inspection, and show us their insecurities and worry-lines in close-up. As they do their fantasies; when the curtain rises at encore time we discover them as a rock trio, …
