    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 27 September 2006Performance 20-30 Sep

  4. The Place Prize Final at Robin Howard Dance Theatre, The Place

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Wednesday 27 September 2006Performance 20-30 Sep

    ‘There’s no doubt in my mind who deserves the big prize. Nina Rajarani, who runs her own company Srishti, is competing with Quick!, a terrific piece for four men in shirts and ties who strut about like peacocks in the workplace.’  

  5. Ballet Boyz in encore at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 27 September 2006Performance 26 Sep-1 Oct

    ‘Charles Linehan’s Jjanke is a kind of reduced mazurka, which has the two men circling each other in spare, muscular phrases; and while the space they’re in looks as deserted as an ex-eastern bloc dancehall, the men’s intimate, easy connection …

    Monday 25 September 2006

  8. Les Ballets Trockadero de Montecarlo at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 25 September 2006Performance 19-30 Sep

    ‘Sometimes with the Trocks there comes a performance that transcends comedy and just for a second you completely buy into the fantasy that this could be a real night at the ballet.’  

  9. Sylvie Guillem & Akram Khan in Sacred Monsters at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 25 September 2006Performance 19-23 Sep

    ‘Physically, they are opposites … Yet they don’t look incongruous: their tremendous physical abilities unite them, together with their shared sense of daring.’ 

  10. Sylvie Guillem & Akram Khan in Sacred Monsters at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 25 September 2006Performance 19-23 Sep

    ‘Only when they come together in that image of a moving god does the piece attain a kind of magical communion.’ 

  11. Sylvie Guillem & Akram Khan in Sacred Monsters at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 25 September 2006Performance 19-23 Sep

    ‘For me the sole point of interest is the extent to which it’s Guillem with her lean and loosely structured body who looks awkward and gawky in this ill-defined play-dancing while the more compact Khan looks almost at home, if grossly under-stretched.’ 

  12. Sylvie Guillem & Akram Khan in Sacred Monsters at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 25 September 2006Performance 19-23 Sep

    ‘This Guillem/Khan event is chilly (except when Khan dances), self-conscious and unrelentingly portentous.’

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 25 September 2006Performance 19-23 Sep

    ‘Instead of allowing it to be what it wants to be – the fl irty collision of two thrilling talents – Cools has dressed the whole thing in the clothes of the conceptual artevent.’ 

  14. Merce Cunningham Dance Company in Ocean at The Roundhouse

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 25 September 2006Performance 21-24 Sep

    ‘And because Cunningham and his dancers access nature’s random and implacable rhythms with such acuity, you have a sense of participating in something beyond theatre.’ 

  15. Merce Cunningham Dance Company in Ocean at The Roundhouse

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 25 September 2006Performance 21-24 Sep

    ‘Ocean, with the marine roarings and borborygms and whispers of its score, with its dances that can be like abstractions of waves or birds or sea-legends, is extraordinary as a creation, and magnificently danced. It is also, rather less magnificently, 90 unbroken m…
