  4. Carlos in Cuba at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 11 April 2008Performance 9 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘Is Carlos Acosta spreading himself too thin? If this mixed bill of Cuban choreography is anything to go by, you half think he might be, although not because he dances too much (he appears in three works of the four-part programme)….’  

  5. Carlos in Cuba at London Coliseum

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 11 April 2008Performance 9 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘Carlos Acosta’s latest show is livelier than it deserves to be. These works aren’t strong, but they’re put across with appealing energy.’  

  6. Carlos in Cuba at London Coliseum

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 11 April 2008Performance 9 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘The result is a considerable improvement on the misguided bill he headlined at the Wells last October with artists from Ballet Nacional de Cuba.’  

  7. Ballet Black at Linbury Studio at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 11 April 2008Performance 9 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘But this small, determined company no longer requires special marketing for its repertory. On the contrary the latest programme features some of the most original new ballets to be shown this season.’  

  8. Ballet Black in Mixed Bill at Linbury Studio at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 11 April 2008Performance 9 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘Ballet Black’s mission is to provide role models for young aspiring black and Asian dancers. It’s a small company – only six dancers – and a young one. And, at this stage in its life, a foreign one too – five of the six dancers are… 

  9. john moran + his neighbour saori at Soho Theatre

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 11 April 2008Performance to 19 Apr 08

    ‘What we experience is an exceptionally artful blend of naturalism and artifice by two performers who seem rightly and innocently entranced by their own peculiar gifts. It could be a cult hit.’  

  10. john moran + his neighbour saori at Soho Theatre

    Press Review Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Friday 11 April 2008Performance to 19 Apr 08

    ‘This little show, which arrives in London via Edinburgh and Dublin, feels like a throwback to some 1970s New York happening, but, despite its apparently shambolic appearance, there is a fierceness, an intelligence and sweetness at its core that is hard to resis… 

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

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 11 April 2008Performance 10 - 12 Apr 08

    ‘McGregor has spoken about his interest in the brain-body connection, yet Entity reads less like science and more like emotion. In deconstructing how we move, McGregor is asking what we feel. The answer is not the resolution of most choreography but a blizzard o…
