  2. New Art Club in The Visible Men at The Place

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 31 October 2007Performance 27 & 29 Oct 07

    ‘It is only halfway through that the real pleasure begins and we are reminded what ingenious choreographers Roden and Shenton are.’  

  3. New Art Club in The Visible Men at The Place

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Wednesday 31 October 2007Performance 27 & 29 Oct 07

    ‘With The Visible Men, a 70-minute piece presented as part of this year’s Dance Umbrella (which commissioned it), Roden and Shenton take pot shots at everything from installation art to the process of making theatre.’  

  4. New Art Club in The Visible Men at The Place

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 31 October 2007Performance 27 & 29 Oct 07

    ‘They speak as much as they move, squabbling over their material, making cod-philosophical statements, getting sidetracked. When they do dance, it’s with gangling comedy emphasis.’  

  5. Review: Dancing Nikita Company in Bollywood night at Norden Farm centre for the arts, Maidenhead

    , Wednesday 31 October 2007 — Performance: Bollywood dance show by the Dancing Nikita Company

    Performing to a full house at Norden Farm, the performers all gave lively performances in their individual items only to all come together at the end for a grand finale of ‘Kajra re’ – a song w… Continue Reading

  6. Review: New Art Club in The Visible Men at The Place

    Sophie Lawson, Tuesday 30 October 2007 — Performance: 27 & 29 Oct 07

    29 Oct I found ‘The Visible Men’ to be an evening of humourous dance. I enjoyed experiencing a light-hearted personable evening of dance. There were some laugh out loud moments and moments that evoke… Continue Reading

  8. Carlos Acosta with Guest Artists from Ballet Nacional de Cuba at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 29 October 2007Performance 23-28 Oct 07

    ‘It is difficult to know what to make of this bizarre evening. Billed as Carlos Acosta with guest artists from the Ballet Nacional de Cuba, it is indeed that, and precious little else save three small and horrid dance scenas, miserably choreographed by Alberto Me… 

  9. From Here to Maturity at Purcell Room, South Bank Centre

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 29 October 2007Performance Oct 07

    ‘Age brings a concentration of craft and power, and when Dickie dreamily lifts her arms into a classical fifth position, then angles them sharply with a sidelong glance at her audience, we feel a powerful jolt of transmitted emotion.’  

  10. Ko Murobushi in Quicksilver at The Place

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Monday 29 October 2007Performance 16 & 17 Oct 07

    ‘Every bone, muscle, sinew and tendon ripples obscenely under the light, and – paradoxically, given how aware this makes you of Murobushi’s body – he looks barely human. It’s strange, difficult, riveting stuff, and may Murobushi return soon,… 

  11. Charles Linehan in Happy Days and The Way Station at The Place

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Monday 29 October 2007Performance 23 & 24 Oct 07

    ‘Both were vibrantly danced, visually economical, and made efficient use of sparse but effective music and of the Place’s deceptively large stage. On this evidence, Linehan should be better known than he is.’ 

  12. Shen Wei Dance Arts in Connect Transfer at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Monday 29 October 2007Performance 17-20 Oct 07

    ‘It makes for a study in evanescence and permanence that doesn’t particularly stir the emotions or quite sustain its 70 minutes, but one that’s colourful, sculptural, very well danced, and meticulously elegant too.’ 

  13. Carlos Acosta with Guest Artists from Ballet Nacional de Cuba at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Nadine Meisner, Sunday Times, Monday 29 October 2007Performance 23-28 Oct 07

    ‘It’s not that Acosta’s intentions lacked dignity. We have admired the Ballet Nacional de Cuba, one of the world’s great companies, before. But here, he clearly wanted to present some of his compatriots in intrinsically indigenous work that would … 

  14. Carlos Acosta with Guest Artists from Ballet Nacional de Cuba at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 29 October 2007Performance 23-28 Oct 07

    ‘For once in my life, I felt short-changed by Carlos Acosta. His audience loves him, but not unconditionally.’
