  1. Review: Peter Schauffus in Satisfaction at Apollo Theatre

    Mel Klein, Friday 31 August 2007 — Performance: 28 Aug - 8 Sep 07

    ‘My dad would have loved that’ said another less than satisfied punter coming out of the first night of Peter Schaufuss’ ‘dancical’ (his description) set to music of the Rolling Sto… Continue Reading

  2. Peter Schauffus in Satisfaction at Apollo Theatre

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 31 August 2007Performance 28 Aug - 8 Sep 07

    ‘The performers are hard-working and keen, but there is nothing to be done with these steps.’  

  3. Peter Schauffus in Satisfaction at Apollo Theatre

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 31 August 2007Performance 28 Aug - 8 Sep 07

    ‘Trying to make ballerinas look like hip clubbers by putting them in jeans and pointe shoes, or styling them as punk angels with metal breasts, smacks of desperation.’  

  4. Peter Schauffus in Satisfaction at Apollo Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 31 August 2007Performance 28 Aug - 8 Sep 07

    ‘It is desperate stuff. The dancers (from Schaufuss’s own company) are energetic but there is no life coming from the stage, not one step that displays imagination or flair. Gerald Scarfe’s cartoon backdrop has more personality than the action that un… 

  5. Peter Schauffus in Satisfaction at Apollo Theatre

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 31 August 2007Performance 28 Aug - 8 Sep 07

    ‘It’s a far cry from the swinging 60s, or the spirit of rock’n‘roll.’  

  6. Peter Schauffus in Satisfaction at Apollo Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Thursday 30 August 2007Performance 28 Aug - 8 Sep 07

    ‘Even with the vintage appeal of the Stones, Schaufuss’s choreography looks 30 years behind. His style is an old-fashioned mix of exaggerated split kicks and silly synchronised routines (think Bucks Fizz in Eurovision mode), while the angsty solos are dire… 

  7. News: Ballet saves climber from injury

    Wednesday 29 August 2007

    A climber says that his ballet training helped him avoid serious injury in a fall from a cliff in Pembrokeshire last weekend. Instead of landing on his head he was able to somersault and land on all fours. Read … Continue Reading

  8. Royal Ballet of Flanders in Impressing the Czar at Edinburgh Festival

    Press Review Laura Keynes, Observer, Wednesday 29 August 2007Performance Aug 07

    ‘With its glut of references and lavish veneer, seeing the complete work is akin to being left to wander alone aged 13 through the National Gallery; it has the savage delight of a fairy tale.’ 

  9. Scottish Ballet in Triple Bill at Edinburgh Festival

    Press Review Laura Keynes, Observer, Wednesday 29 August 2007Performance Aug 07

    ‘…on this occasion Scottish Ballet failed to impress many at the Playhouse for one reason alone: the ill fit between Trisha Brown’s dated, incredibly slow For MG: The Movie and the fast-paced exacting Ride The Beast, a world premiere for Petronio.’ 

  10. News: Work in progress

    Wednesday 29 August 2007

    As well as working on a collaboration with the National Ballet of China, Akram Khan is co-producing a theatre piece for the National Theatre, starring Juliet Binoche. Both will be seen on stage in London next ye… Continue Reading

  11. Trisha Brown Dance Company in Company Repertory at Edinburgh Festival

    Press Review Ismene Brown, Telegraph, Tuesday 28 August 2007Performance Aug 07

    ‘…Brown’s 1970s ideas still seem modern today, and Set and Reset felt like the freshest thing of the night. Its Robert Rauschenberg set still teases – the gauze encampment of tents that rise into the air, vintage newsreel projected in disconnected… 

  12. Trisha Brown Dance Company in Company Repertory at Edinburgh Festival

    Press Review Alice Bain, Guardian, Tuesday 28 August 2007Performance Aug 07

    ‘****This is a compact company with a big reach. Confident, curious and supremely suited to its dancers, the work of Trisha Brown embraces the vast, dingy Playhouse with ease. Brown’s pedigree places her work at the top of her generation, among artists such a…

    Friday 24 August 2007
