  5. Morphoses - The Wheeldon Company at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 24 September 2007Performance 19-23 Sep 07

    ‘Does the world need a ballet company that does only neo-classical? To judge by the reception of Christopher Wheeldon’s classy, transatlantic venture, making its debut at a packed Sadler’s Wells, the world thinks it probably does.’ 

  6. Morphoses - The Wheeldon Company at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 24 September 2007Performance 19-23 Sep 07

    ‘So far Wheeldon’s instincts have led him to good places. With luck and a fair wind, they’ll continue to do so.’

    ‘The men are strong and smouldering, the women all curves and long legs. They exude a fizzing energy that can border on the tongue-in-cheek.’  

  10. Morphoses - The Wheeldon Company at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 21 September 2007Performance 19-23 Sep 07

  12. Morphoses - The Wheeldon Company at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 21 September 2007Performance 19-23 Sep 07

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Thursday 20 September 2007Performance 6 Oct - 11 Sep 07

    ‘How useful is Touch Wood? You can’t see how much these choreographers are getting from the process. With unfinished material, what really comes across is the quality of the dancing. Requardt and Shechter come off best because they know how to get their da…

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Thursday 20 September 2007Performance 18 - 29 Sep 07

    ‘There is a singer, Javier di Ciriaco, who claims the songs for his own, and the five couples produce marvels of elaboration on the tango manner, the women thrown and twisted like scarves round the men’s necks. ‘
