    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 28 May 2010Performance 25 - 29 May 2010

    “Davies has the ability to make her dance seem relaxed and off the cuff, even when it’s as carefully plotted as here. David Buckland’s set, which looks like a room adorned with copper walls, is beautiful, as is Ian Beswick’s lighting.”

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 28 May 2010Performance 25 - 29 May 2010

    “Watching Rambert’s revival of RainForest (1968), we don’t feel we’re in the presence of heritage or classic material – it’s easily the most modern-looking item on the programme.”

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 28 May 2010Performance 25 - 29 May 2010

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 26 May 2010Performance in rep until 11 June 2010

    ‘It is intriguing, fresh in thought, its duet exquisitely done by Melissa Hamilton in the arms of Eric Underwood, and overlong, alas, in its last movement, which is hostage to its James MacMillan score – but its choreography everywhere proclaims possibilit…
