    Lindsey Clarke, Wednesday 28 June 2006 — Performance: 24 Jun

    Docklands is a fantastical place at weekends, all soaring glinting office towers and pristine manmade gardens; the smell of the sea drifting off the Thames and calm and quiet all around. For one afternoon, Danci… Continue Reading

  3. Review: Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Flowerbed at The Pit, Barbican

    Lisa Haight, Wednesday 28 June 2006 — Performance: 21 Jun-8 Jul

    I have seen many different versions of Romeo and Juliet, both live and on screen, from Kenneth MacMillan’s 1965 version to Baz Luhrman’s 1996 one. However, I’ve never quite seen anything like M… Continue Reading

  4. Mark Morris Dance Group/English National Opera in King Arthur at Coliseum

    Press Review Rupert Christiansen, Telegraph, Wednesday 28 June 2006Performance 26 Jun - 8 Jul

    ‘“Vaudeville” is the term Morris mentions in his programme note, but “dog’s breakfast” is what came to my mind. ‘ 

  5. Mark Morris Dance Group/English National Opera in King Arthur at Coliseum

    Press Review Tom Service, Guardian, Wednesday 28 June 2006Performance 26 Jun - 8 Jul

    ‘It’s an entertainment in which the joyous energy of the Mark Morris Dance Group is as important as the roles taken by the singers.’  

  6. Mark Morris Dance Group/English National Opera in King Arthur at Coliseum

    Press Review Richard Morrison, Times, Wednesday 28 June 2006Performance 26 Jun - 8 Jul

    ‘WHAT A witty, whimsical, mesmerising and meltingly beautiful entertainment the American choreographer Mark Morris has made of Henry Purcell’s semi-opera. It’s a village fête, a seaside show and a surreal pageant of British eccentrics from all eras … 

  7. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Flowerbed at The Pit, Barbican

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 26 June 2006Performance 21 Jun-8 Jul

    ‘It’s not Romeo and Juliet as we know it, but what it says about the futility of civil strife is the same.’ 

  8. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Flowerbed at The Pit, Barbican

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 26 June 2006Performance 21 Jun-8 Jul

    ‘The Flowerbed is stronger on caricature than feeling: the characters work best when preening, competitive, imitating each other or smiling vinegar greetings.’  

  9. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Flowerbed at The Pit, Barbican

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 26 June 2006Performance 21 Jun-8 Jul

    ‘…with so much choreography disappearing down the blind alley of Merce Cunningham-styled abstraction, The Flowerbed serves as an impressive example of the kind of narrative dance-work that smaller-scale contemporary companies might be considering.’ 

  10. Compania Metros in Carmen at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 26 June 2006Performance 20-24 May

    ‘Yet for all its vigour, the production doesn’t scale the emotional heights. Its ending feels anticlimactic.’ 

  11. Compania Metros in Carmen at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 26 June 2006Performance 20-24 May

    ‘The choreography is a casual marriage of flamenco and modern – raised elbows, liquid wrists, high sultry legs – and shades easily and naturalistically into the action which drives the plot.’

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 23 June 2006Performance 20-24 May

    ‘Danced by a dozen members of his Compañía Metros, Oller’s 75-minute production is a tight, intense take on a familiar but timeless tale.’  

  15. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Flowerbed at The Pit, Barbican

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 23 June 2006Performance 21 Jun-8 Jul
