  1. LA Dance Project - Mixed Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Thursday 3 October 2013Performance 2 - 4 October 2013

    Certainly, Peck’s small creation has all the marks of talent: felicity of means, grace of manner, ease of construction, and all, be it said, achieved at the cost of who-knows-what sweated labour.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 3 October 2013Performance 2 - 4 October 2013

    As the company make their first visit to London, there’s something about LA Dance Project that fails to convince – and, unfortunately, it’s Millepied’s own contribution that skews the evening.  

  3. LA Dance Project - Mixed Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Thursday 3 October 2013Performance 2 - 4 October 2013

    What I like about LA Dance Project, Benjamin Millepied’s year-old company, is the way it allows the talents of its dancers to emerge, letting them function both as a convincing ensemble and a sharply delineated collection of individuals.  

  4. Cirque Eloize - iD - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 4Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Thursday 3 October 2013Performance 1 - 19 October 2013

    …the skill and excitement levels are sky-high. It mixes circus and urban dance to cracking effect; there’s even some inline skating and trial-bike tricks thrown in for good measure.

    Cirque Eloize - iD - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 4Rachel Ward, Telegraph, Thursday 3 October 2013Performance 1 - 19 October 2013

    With neither a big top nor a freaky clown in sight, Cirque Éloize’s famed iD spectacle is an eye-popping display of contemporary circus acts fused with frenetic urban dance and graphically staged theatre.  

  6. Cirque Eloize - iD - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 4Keith Watson, Metro, Thursday 3 October 2013Performance 1 - 19 October 2013

    This hugely entertaining show from one of Canada’s most adventurous new circus outfits is selling itself as ‘a fusion of circus and urban dance’. Director Jeannot Painchaud knows where the strength of his troupe lies and deploys his street dancers as comic punctu…

  8. LA Dance Project - Mixed Bill - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jann Parry, dancetabs.com, Wednesday 2 October 2013Performance 2 - 4 October 2013

    Minimal, exasperating and pleasantly plangent, the music was the source of collaborative choreography with the cast of five.

  15. Royal Ballet - Don Quixote - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Siobhan Murphy, Metro, Tuesday 1 October 2013Performance 30 Sep - 6 November 2013

    Acosta has pulled off something remarkable: he’s found a sense of raucous, good-natured fun among the company’s ranks that makes this Don Q genuinely funny. Mime-heavy though the first act may be, there’s a cheeky delight in physical comedy on display here.
