    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 31 May 2011Performance 24 - 28 May 2011

    “Just as you think you’ve got the measure of this creamy barefoot classicism, Taylor lobs gymnastics into the mix: a woman forward-rolls along the torso of her supine partner; another pair take turns to cartwheel deftly through each other’s scissored le… 

  3. Bern:Ballett in Clara / Howl at Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 31 May 2011Performance 25 - 28 May 2011

    “The result, sad to say, is dance for the radio. Songs and piano pieces by Wieck, Schumann and Brahms are coolly and beautifully delivered from the stage, but the choreography sheds no light whatever on the topic”

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 31 May 2011Performance in rep until 11 June 2011

    The Rite of Spring “The dance gains in nervous speed; McRae’s clarity of utterance – his academic roles always given the acutest outlines and rhythms – brings a fierce impetus to the youth’s dancing, and cuts his intense state vividly int…

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 31 May 2011Performance in rep until 11 June 2011

    “All three are significant works but together they make for an unbalanced trio as Kenneth MacMillan’s The Rite of Spring and Glen Tetley’s Voluntaries are so robust that they muscle out the deceptively delicate charms of Frederick Ashton’s Scen…

  8. Royal Ballet in Scenes de ballet / Voluntaries / The Rite of Spring at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 31 May 2011Performance in rep until 11 June 2011

    “Ashton’s Scènes de Ballet comes as close to perfect as any ballet I know. Its choreographic patterns evolve with a miraculous, skin-prickling precision, and underlying the scintillating elegance of its surface style is a drama of dark, burnished romanticism.” 

  9. Anne Linsel & Rainer Hoffmann in Dancing Dreams - the legacy of Pina Bausch at Cinemas

    Press Review Philip French, Observer, Tuesday 31 May 2011Performance Release date: 27 May 2011

    “It’s a discreet yet revealing look at her methods and at a likeable group of dedicated young people. Anyone who liked Pina will want to see it.”

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 31 May 2011Performance 24 - 28 May 2011

    “Faster steps, like Miguel Altunaga’s springs and somersaults, are whipped off with exuberant panache, but this is Rambert a long way from its comfort zone.They devour Tim Rushton’s Monolith, though.”

    “Tim Rushton’s Monolith, receiving its London premiere, is earth to Roses’s air. … Much of the movement has a disarming, stroppy ugliness about it until a breath of beauty blows through bringing with it a lightness and plasticity that provides …
