  3. Scottish Ballet - A Streetcar Named Desire - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 29 April 2012Performance 26 - 28 April 2012

    A Streetcar Named Desire for Scottish Ballet is a model of narrative clarity. You can walk into the auditorium with no previous knowledge of Tennessee Williams’s play and never have a moment’s doubt as to who’s who, or what’s going on.  

  4. Scottish Ballet - A Streetcar Named Desire - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 5Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Sunday 29 April 2012Performance 26 - 28 April 2012

    Not only does it crackle with Southern heat and sexual tension, but it’s a model of storytelling. No need to have seen the play or the film: everything is here, from the big themes of masculine-feminine, earth and air, to the smallest detail.  

  5. Royal Ballet - Polyphonia / Sweet Violets / Carbon Life at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 29 April 2012Performance in rep until 23 April 2012

    With an experienced librettist at Scarlett’s side, and better musical advice, Sweet Violets would have been a very different work.  

  6. Scottish Ballet - A Streetcar Named Desire - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Sunday 29 April 2012Performance 26 - 28 April 2012

    The two stars are earned by the ensemble for bravery and devotion to a lost cause.  

  7. Ballet Revolución

    Review: Ballet Revolución at The Peacock Theatre

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Friday 27 April 2012 — Performance: 25 Apr - 19 May 2012

    ..the artistry of these formidable performers, the fun they were having, radiated through any minor distractions, making this a night of dance as uplifting as one of their soaring skyward leaps. Continue Reading

  8. Scottish Ballet 'A Streetcar Named Desire'

    Review: Scottish Ballet - A Streetcar Named Desire - Sadler's Wells

    Laura Dodge, Friday 27 April 2012 — Performance: 26 - 28 April 2012

    This is a work that is all about emotion and passion, and Scottish Ballet performs with lucid fervour and sincerity.  Continue Reading

  9. Scottish Ballet - A Streetcar Named Desire - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 27 April 2012Performance 26 - 28 April 2012

    But most effective is the pure dance expression. There’s too little of it, perhaps, but Ochoa’s choreographic language can be shockingly truthful

    Review: Goddard/Nixon & Jose Agudo - Springloaded at The Place

    Germaine Cheng, Friday 27 April 2012 — Performance: 24 April 2012

    It’s taken Goddard Nixon and Jose Agudo in this Spring Loaded double bill to make me realize how much I learned from two viewings of the 2010 blockbuster Inception. Like these two dance works the film delves… Continue Reading

  12. Scottish Ballet - A Streetcar Named Desire - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Clifford Bishop, Evening Standard, Friday 27 April 2012Performance 26 - 28 April 2012

    The result is everything you could want of Tennessee Williams — florid, poetic, poisonously beautiful — while retaining a completely lucid plot, with Peter Salem’s jazz-based-melting-pot score providing just the right amount of New Orleans seasoning to the action.  

  13. Ballet Revolución at the Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 2Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 27 April 2012Performance 25 Apr - 19 May 2012

    I admire the muscular verve and unsparing eagerness of its cast – notably the men – but can find no choreographic virtues in it other than those of a cabaret of no great finesse

    Review: Compass

    Laura Dodge, Thursday 26 April 2012 — Performance: Monday 23 April

    This vibrant show brought together a team of choreographers, a writer, a film-maker, designers, composers & musicians with a cast of over 100 performers from a variety of backgrounds. Continue Reading

  15. Ballet Revolución at the Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 3Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Thursday 26 April 2012Performance 25 Apr - 19 May 2012

    Ballet Revolución is a bit like watching an MTV miscellany while doing cardio in the gym: it pumps you up, delivers an endorphin high, and afterwards you feel rather exhausted.
