    Mark Baldwin & Ladysmith Black Mambazo - Inala - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Monday 13 July 2015 — Performance: 7 - 11 July 2015

    'Inala' is at its best when the dancers and singers perform as a single harmonious unit at which time the rhythmic movement of the choir is indistinguishable from the professional dancers.  Continue Reading

  7. Wendy Whelan / Edward Watson - Other Stories - Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Neil Norman, The Stage, Friday 10 July 2015Performance 9 - 12 July 2015

    Arthur Pita’s concluding tribute to Brecht and Weill’s Threepenny Opera is typically mischievous and suffused with a dark sexuality that elides Weimar cabaret with Argentinian tango in a most agreeable manner. Watson rips the shirt from Whelan who responds by… 

  8. Wendy Whelan / Edward Watson - Other Stories - Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 10 July 2015Performance 9 - 12 July 2015

    Perhaps unexpectedly, this is not really a performance about technical display but about the possibilities that lie between two people. It’s an experiment and, by the close of this short show, it feels more like the beginning of a journey than the end.

    Wendy Whelan / Edward Watson - Other Stories - Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Graham Watts, Friday 10 July 2015 — Performance: 9 - 12 July 2015

    This was a programme of cabaret dance that could have fallen flat in the performances of less experienced and expressive artists. 'Other Stories' was made by Whelan and Watson, in every sense. Continue Reading

  12. Dutch National Ballet - Cinderella - London Coliseum

    Press Review 2Neil Norman, The Stage, Thursday 9 July 2015Performance 8 - 11 July 2015

    Christopher Wheeldon’s revisionist take on Cinderella attempts to imitate the grand classical ballets of Imperialist Russia. But it’s a very pale imitation, in spite of being dressed to kill.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Thursday 9 July 2015Performance 8 - 11 July 2015

    The reworking takes its inspiration from the Brothers Grimm, which usually suggests something darker than the Disneyfied norm, but this one is bright and romantic. We do lose the fairy godmother and her pumpkin (I know!)… 

  14. Dutch National Ballet - Cinderella - London Coliseum

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Thursday 9 July 2015Performance 8 - 11 July 2015

    …a supremely fresh reimagining of a well-trodden tale.

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 9 July 2015Performance 8 - 11 July 2015

    One of Christopher Wheeldon’s greatest assets is his taste in stage designers, and it’s worth seeing this Cinderella just for the combined visual sorcery of Julian Crouch and Basil Twist.
