    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Wednesday 31 January 2007Performance Feb 07

    Coming to Purcell Room, 23-4 Feb 07 ‘My misgivings about Driven grew as the show progressed. Physically Motionhouse’s fit young dancers give their all, but they lack psychological texture and emotional shading.’

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Wednesday 31 January 2007Performance 24-5 Jan

    ‘Henri Oguike is one of the brightest hopes of British contemporary dance and it is typical of his range and ambition that his company’s spring tour should begin with a programme that unveils two new pieces. ‘ 

  4. Jacky Lansley in View From the Shore at Linbury Studio

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 31 January 2007Performance Jan 07

    ‘The integrity of Lansley’s raw materials is always exemplary. What’s disappointing in this programme is that the choreography lacks some combination of distance and rigour to make those materials gel.’

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 29 January 2007Performance 15 Jan - 9 Feb 07

    ‘As the Sylphide, Cojocaru is miraculous. Exquisitely fine-drawn, her jump airy and weightless, she is the ultimate otherworld being.’ 

  9. Henri Oguike Dance Company at various

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 29 January 2007Performance

    ‘There are times, however, when Oguike’s note-by-note translation of music into movement can seem a little overcontrolled, so it’s good to see him departing his comfort zone with Green in Blue, a collaboration with the jazz saxophonist Iain Ballamy.’

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 29 January 2007Performance 24-5 Jan

    ‘Oguike’s strength has always been his ability to find such bold theatrical colour within the pure abstraction of his dance.’

    All Wear Bowlers, Barbican Theatre ‘Imagine Waiting for Godot played by Laurel and Hardy, designed by Magritte, and you get some idea of the range of reference in All Wear Bowlers by the American clown duo Rainpan 43.’ 

  13. London International Mime Festival at various

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 29 January 2007Performance

    Tangentes, Barbican Theatre ‘By means of conveyor belts set at different speeds the four performers play games with expectation: one pair walk towards each other yet actually move further apart, another pair retreat from each other yet come closer.’ 

  14. London International Mime Festival at various

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 29 January 2007Performance

    Philippe Genty, Lands End, QEH ‘In the best scene, a woman dances with an insect lover, a puppet with a human face, frail legs and twitching beetle body. The whole creature is unsettling and brilliant.’ 

  15. London International Mime Festival at various

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Monday 29 January 2007Performance

    Philippe Genty, Lands End, QEH ‘Nearing 70, this talented Frenchman is an acknowledged master of wordless visual theatre whose themes and imagery are often derived from dreams.’
