  2. Review: Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Bull at Barbican Theatre

    Mariko Harano, Wednesday 28 February 2007 — Performance: 21 February - 3 March

    What a haunting, bleak yet powerfully moving finale to Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre’s’ The Bull. The stage floor is covered by ochre coloured mud, with rain pouring from the ceiling. All twelve perfo… Continue Reading

  3. Ballet Flamenco Eva Yerbabuena in El Huso de la Memoria at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 23-25 February

    ‘But you do see Yerbabuena’s real gifts in two scenes. In “Espumas del Recuerdo”, she appears in a white-and-orange dress with a long ruffled train. She manages the fabric brilliantly, kicking it into great sweeps and swirls of cloth. Her final… 

  4. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Bull at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 21 February - 3 March

    ‘Draw a line from Samuel Beckett to Quentin Tarantino and somewhere along it you’ll find Michael Keegan-Dolan.’ 

  5. American Ballet Theatre at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 14-18 Feb 07

    ‘The company are at their best, unsurprisingly, in American works, and their reading of Mark Morris’s Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes, an abstract piece to Virgil Thomson’s piano etudes, is gorgeous, especially a legato section danced by Angel Corella.’ 

  6. Australian Dance Theatre in Held at Sadler's Wells (& UK tour)

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 20 & 21 Feb 07

    ‘Their movement is similarly eclectic, a fast and fearless collection of corkscrew turns, scissor-legged leaps, jerking contortions and collapsing rolls delivered with a muscular yet mechanically propulsive pounce to a soundtrack of battering beats and saturatin… 

  7. Ballet Flamenco Eva Yerbabuena in El Huso de la Memoria at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 23-25 February

    ‘El Huso de la Memoria doesn’t always meet its own challenges, but it is boldly imagined, and promises more from Yerbabuena in the future.’  

  8. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Bull at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 21 February - 3 March

    ‘It’s bleak and raucous at the same time, a dark, smart farce pulsing with lurid characterisations and vicious potshots at the cornerstones of Irish culture.’  

  9. Ballet Flamenco Eva Yerbabuena in El Huso de la Memoria at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 23-25 February

    ‘Yerbabuena was the redemptive heart of an otherwise gloomy performance. She danced three times, each distinct in feel, look and tone.’  

  10. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Bull at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 21 February - 3 March

    ‘This is a characteristic Keegan-Dolan production, with cartoonish energy, wandering narrative, dull patches and sharply pointed moments.’ 

  11. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Bull at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 21 February - 3 March

    ‘Some of the violence is so shocking that you feel uneasy laughing. The comedy is at its best in the digs at the Riverdance phenomenon (the twinkle-toed Colin Dunne is a star). While I’ve no doubt that the original 12th-century epic contained quite as much fo… 

  12. Australian Dance Theatre in Held at Sadler's Wells (& UK tour)

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 20 & 21 Feb 07

    ‘It’s like a scene from a gladiator movie, digitally enhanced.’ 

  13. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre in The Bull at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 21 February - 3 March

    ‘Part of the show’s delight is the witty, improbable and outrageously graphic detail with which the deaths are staged – knitting needles to the throat, a golf iron to the skull. But just as entertaining are the swipes the show takes at modern Ireland… 

  14. Royal Ballet in Swan Lake at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 3-27 Feb 07

    ‘Rare, too, the clarity of Thiago Soares’s portrait of Siegfried, every moment understood, vital in emotion. No grand bravura in dancing, but sensitivity and intelligence of an exceptional order.’ 

  15. Australian Dance Theatre in Held at Sadler's Wells (& UK tour)

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 20 & 21 Feb 07

    ‘The movement is crass, and reeks of 1980s rebelliousness’
