  1. ZooNation in Some Like It Hip Hop at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Dominic Cavendish, Telegraph, Monday 31 October 2011Performance 20 October - 19 November 2011

    ‘Anyone lured to ZooNation’s new show on the basis that it sounds like a clever hip-hop reworking of a famous Billy Wilder comedy be warned: it’s a neat title, not a major treatment, and the evening itself is far more about style than substance.’

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 28 October 2011Performance 24 & 25 October 2011

    ‘There’s a wonderful duet for Louise Mochia and Mani Obeya. A prance from side to side becomes a teasing chase, full of unpredictable dips and changes of direction. It all looks casual and easy, but the twists of rhythm are sharp enough to make the audienc…

    Press Review Clifford Bishop, Evening Standard, Friday 28 October 2011Performance 20 October - 19 November 2011

    Katherine de Klee, Thursday 27 October 2011 — Performance: October 2011

    It’s the stage that catches your eye first – a jumble of chimney stacks, washing lines and the trappings of Parisian bohemia, all set under a beautiful cloud-shaped lantern that tells us we are up in… Continue Reading

    Libby Costello, Thursday 27 October 2011 — Performance: 24 & 25 October 2011

    *Rian* is one of the most unusual dance performances staged at Sadler’s Wells in recent years. This was not down to content, style or theme but rather that it came across as a sort of prolonged music video… Continue Reading

    ‘Franzen is credited with some of the choreography, which impressively pushes hip-hop to a variety of narrative purposes: sharp, robotic routines for the oppressed workers, slow, mournful moves for the citizens-in-exile, and a mother of all dance battles when th…
