  1. The Plusies -Friends -The Place

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 30 June 2013Performance 22 June 2013

    The choreography is fine – weighty, legible, and consequential. But the songs are none of these things.

  5. Jean Abreu - Blood - Linbury Studio Theatre, ROH

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 28 June 2013Performance 27 & 28 June 2013

    The questions that Abreu poses are ambitious, and it’s interesting to watch his attempt to answer them. But the spoken text, the dancing, the taboo-breaking pee, form too many disparate elements. It’s a collage that hasn’t been fully absorbed, either … 

  6. Forsythe Company - N.N.N.N / Study #3 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Wednesday 26 June 2013Performance 18 - 20 June 2013

    I’m not sure that, in all conscience, I could recommend this evening to anyone apart from the most die-hard fans of contemporary dance, and that feels like a pity.

  9. Rosas & Ictus - Drumming - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 5Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 26 June 2013Performance 25 & 26 June 2013

    Set to Steve Reich’s score of the same name, this fusion of atomic precision and raw energy is one of the masterpieces of the late 20th century.

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Monday 24 June 2013 — Performance: 22 June 2013

  12. English National Ballet - Swan Lake - Royal Albert Hall 2013

    Press Review Louise Levene, Telegraph, Sunday 23 June 2013Performance 12 - 23 June 2013

    Since when was ‘Busby Berkeley’ a term of abuse?Critics spoiled rotten by a life of perfect sightlines in the front stalls found the encircling audience distracting and carped that the sheer size of the Albert Hall made it impossible for the artists to convey emotion… 

  13. Forsythe Company - N.N.N.N / Study #3 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Sunday 23 June 2013Performance 18 - 20 June 2013

    …has the shockmeister run out of steam? It looks that way from this low-key, three-night showing from the Forsythe Company at Sadler’s Wells. A late-in-the-day change of programme didn’t bode well. And nor did the pervading absence of any sense of occasion.  

  14. Forsythe Company - N.N.N.N / Study #3 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 23 June 2013Performance 18 - 20 June 2013

    There’s no exhilaration quite like that of a Forsythe Company evening. American choreographer William Forsythe is a visionary whose work demands serious engagement, and can nevertheless still confound. But even if you leave baffled, you know you’ve witnessed … 

  15. Forsythe Company - N.N.N.N / Study #3 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Nouska Hanley, Express, Saturday 22 June 2013Performance 18 - 20 June 2013

    The work in question is complex beyond belief. The movement appears haphazard and involuntary but look a little deeper and it is clear that the opposite is true. There is intention and focus pouring out of them, nothing is accidental. It is as if they are plugged in to s…
