  2. Henri Oguike Dance Company in Mixed Bill at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 30 March 2007Performance 26&27 Mar 07

    ‘Great interest, as always, in his choice of music – here is a choreographer whose adventurous spirit seeks to realise scores from a variety of disciplines, and frequently and happily succeeds in clothing them in dance.’ 

  3. Richard Alston Dance Company in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review John Percival, The Stage, Friday 30 March 2007Performance 28-31 Mar 07

    ‘The dancers in those ballets and indeed all evening, are pretty good too, but what Alston gives them to do leaves something to desire. Why, to this music, does he rely so much on steps that are straight from classical ballet although performed barefoot?’ 

  4. Richard Alston Dance Company in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 30 March 2007Performance 28-31 Mar 07

    ‘This second section also proved a terrific vehicle for the extravagantly brilliant Jonathan Goddard, the 24-carat stand-out in a very talented, physically alluring troupe.’ 

  5. Richard Alston Dance Company in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 30 March 2007Performance 28-31 Mar 07

    ‘Ultimately this programme shows that Alston can put dances together with a facility almost unrivalled in Britain today, and his dancers perform them wonderfully well. But perhaps it’s now time for him to throw a few surprises their way.’  

  6. Hofesh Shechter in Uprising/In Your Rooms at The Place

    Press Review Katie Columbus, The Stage, Friday 30 March 2007Performance 27-31 Mar 07

    ‘In Your Rooms is edgy, fascinating and all embracing, both danced and directed with a raw sophistication.’ 

  7. Hofesh Shechter in Uprising/In Your Rooms at The Place

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 30 March 2007Performance 27-31 Mar 07

    ‘Initially, his nine dancers seem to function as human building blocks, their language restricted to blind repetition or to flickers of raw emotion, but over 40 minutes the choreography seems to embody man’s desperate project towards meaning, as the moveme… 

  8. Hofesh Shechter in Uprising/In Your Rooms at The Place

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 30 March 2007Performance 27-31 Mar 07

    ‘The premiere of In Your Rooms was most encouraging, though not entirely successful. A work for nine dancers (an excellent troupe), it has heaps of atmosphere and its own intelligent logic. What it doesn’t have is enough variety to sustain its 40 minutes.’

    Wednesday 28 March 2007

    Graham Watts, Wednesday 28 March 2007 — Performance: 27 & 28 Mar 07

    During the interval, I looked around an exhibition of paraphernalia celebrating the 21st anniversary of this dynamic little company and came across a review of a performance it gave in 1988 by Jane King, then da… Continue Reading

    Lindsey Clarke, Wednesday 28 March 2007 — Performance: 27-31 Mar 07

    Most conspicuous choreographer of the year so far has to be Hofesh Shechter. Landing a plum spot in the fabulous Sadler’s Wells Sampled programme back in February his breakthrough work *Uprising* reached a… Continue Reading

    Monday 26 March 2007

  13. Royal Ballet in Onegin at Royal Opera House

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 26 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘The company are on excellent form. Cranko’s handling of the Pushkin story as dance is masterly.’ 

  14. Royal Ballet in Onegin at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 26 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘Kobborg and Cojocaru are one of this generation’s great partnerships, and are clearly drawn to the challenge of portraying extreme emotional states. But Pushkin is not susceptible to quite such gothic treatment.’ 

  15. State of Emergency in Mission Re-Position at Stratford Circus

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 26 March 2007Performance Mar 07

    ‘Mission Re-Position, the feistily titled new show from State of Emergency, is full of good intentions. It has been designed as a showcase for young, black, female choreographers – still poorly represented on the dance stage – and, with an almost old…
