  1. Some Like it Hip Hop - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 30 September 2012Performance 20 September - 13 October 2012

    He [Tommy Franzén] has the insouciance and the throwaway musicality of a latterday Astaire and a self-deprecating warmth that carries the audience with him every step of the way.

    Review: Some Like it Hip Hop - Peacock Theatre

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Friday 28 September 2012 — Performance: 20 September - 13 October 2012

    It’s hard to imagine a shape or movement of the human body that did not cycle at top speed through the well-toned physiques of the ultra-enthusiastic cast of Zoonation’s Some Like It Hip Hop... Continue Reading

    Wednesday 26 September 2012 by Mark Doerfel

    "Saying ‘we learned to dance’ doesn’t quite cover it. Whether it was a set piece, a dance piece, or a movement piece, everything has been ‘Larbi-fied'" says Keira Knightley,… Continue Reading

    Press Review 4Liz Hoggard, Evening Standard, Wednesday 26 September 2012Performance 20 September - 13 October 2012

    Choreographer Prince celebrates the skill and athleticism of hip hop (have young bodies ever looked so gorgeous?) but she is the first to call out casual misogyny.

    Review: The Place Prize - Semi-final 4

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Monday 24 September 2012 — Performance: 22 September 2012

    Tonight’s offerings were a mixed bag in more than just quality, but in the spirit of star-ratings & judging I’d say it was the second best night of the four evenings... Continue Reading

  8. San Francisco Ballet -Programme C -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Sunday 23 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 September 2012

    Morris, so stylish in his observations, so generous in his dances, so absolutely inside his music, shows men dancing together. Et voilà tout! There are emotional passages, and we learn about men as dancers. A small treasure.  

  9. San Francisco Ballet -Programme C -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 23 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 September 2012

    in the season’s closing piece, Within the Golden Hour, set to compositions by Ezio Bosso and Vivaldi. A sustained lyrical work with elegiac overtones, ineluctable but wholly unforced in its flow, this may well be Wheeldon’s finest creation.  

  10. San Francisco Ballet -Programme B -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 23 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 September 2012

    Ghosts, set to an edgy score by CF Kip Winger, and eerily lit by Mary Louise Geiger, has the uncanny atmosphere of a Paul Delvaux painting. Wheeldon deploys his dancers with subtlety, draping them over each other in spectral tableaux before reanimating them in whirling… 

  11. San Francisco Ballet - Programme A

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 23 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 Sep 2012

    To take your eye off the principal dancers in Balanchine’s Divertimento No 15, set to Mozart, is to be ravished by the precision-cut phrasing of the corps. Pick any individual and you find the same spring-heeled charm, the same lightly worn mastery of craft. Thes… 

  12. San Francisco Ballet -Programme C -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Sunday 23 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 September 2012

    The revelation of the season has been the work of ex-SFB member Yuri Possokhov, whose Classical Symphony, to Prokofiev, offered the perfect amalgam of beauty, wit and novelty, including a descending pirouette that ended with the brilliant Maria Kochetkova sitting on he… 

  13. San Francisco Ballet -Programme B -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Sunday 23 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 September 2012

    The mark of Wheeldon’s work, the quality that makes him so in demand, is the profusion of his ideas on how the same old four limbs can be deployed afresh within the bounds of classicism. Ghosts bursts with ingenuity, waves of prone bodies rolling like flurries of…

  15. San Francisco Ballet -Programme B -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Seven Magazine, Telegraph, Friday 21 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 September 2012

    Page’s 2012 work is packed with the hard-edged, angry pair work that has been his trademark for a quarter of a century and which slots into its John Adams score like knives in a block.
