  1. Hofesh Shechter in Ten Plagues at Wilton's Music Hall

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 14 April 2008Performance 10 Apr 08

    ‘The movement is as savage as the title suggests. Snake-crawls, scorpion-stabs, shuddering agonies in which the dancers seem to tear their own skins off as they twist and lash in their individual cages of sound.’ 

  2. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance in Entity at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 14 April 2008Performance 10 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘It is slickly done, the dance proceeding literally by fits and starts, the bodies linking and separating in hinted liaisons, the energy spurting and flaring and then dying away.’  

  3. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance in Entity at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 14 April 2008Performance 10 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘With Entity, McGregor has refined his choreographic language to an almost classical level of formalism. It retains its extraordinary fluidity and strangeness – the complex isolations, the nervy detail, the acutely arched spines, the rubbery heel-walks –… 

  4. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance in Entity at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 14 April 2008Performance 10 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘The effect is strange and, more often than not, compelling, though for me Entity is, in the end, oddly uninvolving. When couples dance they do so with no emotional investment in their moves.’  

  5. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance in Entity at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 14 April 2008Performance 10 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘The idea of dancers as specimens, pioneers in the analysis of movement itself, is made the instant that the 10-strong cast step out on to the stage in black briefs and white vests.’ 

  6. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance in Entity at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 14 April 2008Performance 10 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘Where McGregor is strongest is the full-bodied movement he gets from these dancers, and the fine use of stage space. He moves large and small groups against each other, or leaves single dancers in isolation.’

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 11 April 2008Performance 10 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘There is no other dance vocabulary like this – and if Entity, McGregor’s latest work, does not carry the full emotional or symbolic charge of his best choreography, its riches of invention will still hold you riveted.’
