  2. Ivan Putrov's Men in Motion -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Laura Thompson, Telegraph, Tuesday 31 January 2012Performance 27 -29 January 2012

    There is also the gentler gift of Ivan Putrov, a former Royal Ballet principal, who conceived Men in Motion and whose epaulement and arabesque are of the purest beauty. He drifts sublimely through Ashton’s Dance of the Blessed Spirits

    Press Review 2Donald Hutera, Guardian, Monday 30 January 2012Performance 27 -29 January 2012

    The programme was rounded off by Russell Maliphant’s AfterLife (Part One). This quietly spellbinding solo for the exquisite Daniel Proietto was the most engaging piece in an underwhelming night.  

  4. Royal Ballet - Draft Works

    Press Review 3Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 30 January 2012Performance 24 - 26 Jan 2012

    New choreography, new choreographers, are the ozone that must invigorate the air, the life, of a major ballet troupe, and stir the dust that the old repertory generates – on dancers and on audience attitudes.

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 30 January 2012Performance 27 -29 January 2012

    With Ithaka, Ivan Putrov has created a ballet in which everyone loves Ivan Putrov.

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 30 January 2012Performance 27 -29 January 2012

    It’s hard producing a good ballet show. There’s more to it than some young men think.

    Review: Ivan Putrov's Men in Motion -Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Monday 30 January 2012 — Performance: 27 -29 January 2012

    Although the star attraction, Polunin was by no means the only star turn. In fact everyone was cast into the shade by Daniel Proietto's career-defining 'Afterlight' solo. Continue Reading

  9. Royal Ballet - Draft Works

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 29 January 2012Performance 24 - 26 Jan 2012

    Ten dance makers have participated in this season’s Draft Works, the forum for new work supervised by Wayne McGregor, the Royal Ballet’s resident choreographer. Given that seven of the choreographers are company dancers, there’s an unsurprising tilt i…

    Press Review Louise Levene, Sunday Telegraph, Sunday 29 January 2012Performance 27 -29 January 2012

    Even if the Russian visitors had danced, I doubt they could have outshone Daniel Proietto whose mesmerising performance of Russell Maliphant’s Afterlight was a welcome reminder that ballet does not have a monopoly on physical virtuosity. 

  11. Ivan Putrov's Men in Motion -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Saturday 28 January 2012Performance 27 -29 January 2012

    This is a slender evening but it’s also one of real intelligence and surprising moments of passion. And it makes a pretty wonderful case for the male dancer.

    Press Review 3Clifford Bishop, Evening Standard, Saturday 28 January 2012Performance 27 -29 January 2012

    The earliest piece on show was Fokine’s 1911 Le Spectre de la Rose, in which a pink-petalled Igor Kolb gave us pot pourri when what we really wanted was incense and opium. None of the ballets, though, could match Russell Maliphant’s contemporary dance, Afte…

    Press Review , Independent, Friday 27 January 2012Performance 24 - 26 Jan 2012

    The Royal Ballet’s First Drafts makes an appealing evening of new work… The dancing is fresh, with a sense of individual artists finding their voices.
