  2. Akram Khan Company in Gnosis at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 30 April 2010Performance 26 & 27 April 2010

    ‘There is no denying Khan’s power as a dancer, which is showcased in a first half that acts as both a lecture demonstration and a display of his astonishing facility.’  

  3. Ballet Nacional de Espana in Dualia / Romance de Luna / La Leyenda at London Coliseum

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 30 April 2010Performance 27 April - 2 May 2010

    ‘In the name of Spain’s national dance company, “ballet” simply means dance; in this case, a watered-down flamenco that lacks force or passion. Only guest star Tamara Rojo, here deprived of her pointe shoes, gives this evening some energy.’  

  4. Ballet Nacional de Espana in Dualia / Romance de Luna / La Leyenda at London Coliseum

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 30 April 2010Performance 27 April - 2 May 2010

    ‘On the evidence of this latest and stupefying import, Spain’s National Ballet (an odd word to describe relentless stamping and all-too-familiar posturing) seeks to numb us into submissive applause. I have rarely seen dancing having so little effect.’  

  5. Ballet Nacional de Espana in Dualia / Romance de Luna / La Leyenda at London Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 30 April 2010Performance 27 April - 2 May 2010

    ‘Completing the programme is Antonio’s Romance de Luna. Tamara Rojo guests, but in this veiled moonlit whimsy, her gifts are wasted.’  

  6. Ballet Nacional de Espana in Dualia / Romance de Luna / La Leyenda at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 30 April 2010Performance 27 April - 2 May 2010

    ‘Anyone expecting ballet from the Ballet Nacional de España will be disappointed. Spain’s national troupe performs a mix of polished folk dancing, rarefied flamenco and escuela bolera (Spanish classical dance).’
