  1. Royal Ballet - Onegin - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Telegraph, Wednesday 30 January 2013Performance 19, 22, 23, 25, 26, 30, 31 Jan, 1 Feb 2013

    Stuttgart Ballet’s Jason Reilly, provided a safe pair of hands for Cranko’s acrobatic pairwork, and Cojocaru had drama enough for both. The tiny star hurled herself into the delirious duets and delivered a closing scene of remarkable complexity.  

  2. Ieva Kuniskis 'Gone to get milk'

    Resolution! - Ieva Kuniskis / Ceyda Tanc Dance / NRG Dance Company

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Wednesday 30 January 2013 — Performance: 25 January 2013

    Any one of these choreographers could go on to great things, but the evening’s opener - Ieva Kuniskis’s tense and quirkily erotic trio 'Gone to get milk' , was an unusual and brilliant standout.. Continue Reading

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 28 January 2013Performance Touring

    This latest double bill shows off ten strong and charismatic male dancers in new works by big name choreographers Liam Scarlett and Russell Maliphant. It’s a confident evening of muscle and grace.

  6. Balletboyz -The Talent 2013

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Sunday 27 January 2013Performance Touring

    “…when the material is as good as this [Russell Maliphant’s Fallen ), the result is thrilling.”  

  7. Royal Ballet - Onegin - Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 27 January 2013Performance 19, 22, 23, 25, 26, 30, 31 Jan, 1 Feb 2013

    Cojocaru is sublime, Reilly darkly efficient, and McRae’s Lensky marries peerless technique to fine, sympathetic acting. Praise, too, for Bennet Gartside’s Prince Gremin, whose dignity and chivalry leave us in no doubt that Tatiana has chosen the right man.

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Sunday 27 January 2013Performance 19, 22, 23, 25, 26, 30, 31 Jan, 1 Feb 2013

    By contrast, Federico Bonelli, breaking free of the curse of “nice” roles, is consistent in playing Onegin as a poison-tipped dart – hard-edged, decisive and lethal.  

  9. Gandini Juggling - Smashed - London International Mime Festival

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 25 January 2013Performance Jan 2013

    A chorus line of people cross the stage, stepping in time to a wartime song. As in Bausch, they’re wearing formal dress and casting arch glances at the audience. The difference is that the Gandinis are also juggling.

  12. les ballets C de la B / Romeu Runa & Miguel Moreira - The Old King

    Press Review 2Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 22 January 2013Performance Jan 2013

    Moreira and Runa may be aiming for Beckettian repetition, failure as part of life. If so, it’s undercut by unvaried tone and by the show’s physical extremes. Too much of Runa’s performance is virtuoso self-flagellation. His blank face and tortured body make his s…
