  1. Royal Ballet - Cassandra - Linbury Studio Theatre

    Press Review 2Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 31 October 2014Performance 30 October - 1 November 2014

    The figure of Cassandra, a woman who speaks the truth but is never believed, is an enduring archetype, forcefully combining tragedy with irony. Those qualities are lacking in Ludovic Ondiviela’s curiously hollow new ballet, but it does not lack for talent.

    Press Review 2Louise Levene, Financial Times, Friday 31 October 2014Performance 28 - 31 October 2014

    A skater’s ability to glide and spin with frictionless speed has long fascinated dancemakers – Frederick Ashton mimicked skating steps in Les Patineurs, while Kenneth MacMillan, Twyla Tharp and Lar Lubovitch all made work for John Curry. Contemporary dance, contact i…

    Press Review 3Neil Norman, The Stage, Friday 31 October 2014Performance 28 October - 15 November 2014

    These Seoul boys and girls combine the skills of various martial arts, acting and acrobatics in a fast, furious and irresistibly silly show about an allegedly ordinary family who are confronted by a gang of burglars.

    Lise Smith, Thursday 30 October 2014 — Performance: 28 - 31 October 2014

    With clear movement influences from hip-hop and b-boying as well as circus and dance theatre, 'Vertical Influences' is a fresh, ice-cool take on contemporary figure skating. Continue Reading

    Press Review 5Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 30 October 2014Performance 28 - 31 October 2014

    …a quintet of bearded, dreadlocked, baggy-jeaned dancers who spark with movement ideas that I’ve never seen on ice before, let alone on stage.

    Press Review 4Liz Hoggard, Evening Standard, Thursday 30 October 2014Performance 28 - 31 October 2014

    You watch, dazzled, as the five-strong collective compete against each other, flirting, mock-fighting, dragging skates backwards, seemingly against gravity. One minute they’re five young gunslingers, cool and arrogant, the next they’re performing (highly skilled) pra…

    Charlotte Constable, Wednesday 29 October 2014 — Performance: 21 October 2014, Theatre Royal, Winchester

    Vardimon never fails, be it through text or movement, to comment on socio-political issues with wit & dry humour - but 'Park' isn't always made for heavy analysis, with frequent playful glimpse… Continue Reading

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 27 October 2014Performance 20 October - 1 November 2014

    Blackstock is a serious talent, yet he needs to find himself a better writer if he’s to make the transition from hip hop to dance theatre.

    Press Review 4Jeffery Taylor, Express, Sunday 26 October 2014Performance 18 October - 12 November 2014

    Osipova all but steals the show. Snapping at her heels however was a remarkably vivid performance from Francesca Hayward as the young Vera, definitely one to watch.
