  1. Royal Ballet - Don Quixote - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Jeffery Taylor, Express, Sunday 30 November 2014Performance 25 November 2014 - 22 January 2015

    Now 44, Acosta threatened to retire years ago; thank goodness he changed his mind. His turns are no longer mindboggling nor do his jumps defy gravity any more but what an Oscar-winning performance he puts into this friendly, funny three-act fantasy. 

  2. Royal Ballet - Don Quixote - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Luke Jennings, Guardian, Sunday 30 November 2014Performance 25 November 2014 - 22 January 2015

    Nuñez has made the role of Kitri her own, and Acosta brings every ounce of his considerable charm and virtuosity to bear as Basilio. 

  3. Avatâra Ayuso/ AVA Dance Company - Provisional Landscapes - Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Guardian, Sunday 30 November 2014Performance 24 & 25 November 2014

    Where a firecracker talent like Ayuso goes next is anyone’s guess. Her work could use refinement but it’s starkly, vividly alive. 

  4. SYLVIE GUILLEM & AKRAM KHAN - SACRED MONSTERS - SADLER'S WELLS

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Sunday 30 November 2014Performance 25 - 29 November 2014

    Sylvie Guillem and Akram Khan stand face to face, hands held, arms rippling in a winding ribbon of movement. Sacred Monsters is a meandering, sometimes self-indulgent show, but there’s real star power at its heart.

    Review: Avatâra Ayuso/ AVA Dance Company - Provisional Landscapes - Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Friday 28 November 2014 — Performance: 24 & 25 November 2014

    Avatâra Ayuso already has a reputation as a powerful, charismatic dancer, especially for her work with Shobana Jeyasingh and now she is launching her own company....  Continue Reading

  6. Phoenix Dance Theatre - Mapping / Shadows / Shift / Document - Linbury Studio Theatre, ROH

    Press Review 3David Jays, Guardian, Friday 28 November 2014Performance 25 - 29 November 2014

    Darshan Singh Bhuller, formerly Phoenix’s artistic director, provides the tenderly sprawling Mapping, informed by his father’s journey from India to the UK. 

  7. Raimund Hoghe - Pas de Deux - Laban Theatre

    Press Review 2Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 28 November 2014Performance 27 November 2014

    Hoghe spent a decade as dramaturg for dance theatre legend Pina Bausch. Like Bausch, he doesn’t much believe in editing, and two slow hours is more than some in the audience could stand.

    Performance reviewed: 25 November We may be enduring the long run-in to a General Election but forget Theresa May, or Ed Balls – the REAL masters of spin are the vivacious Marianela Nuñez and the indomita… Continue Reading

  10. Phoenix Dance Theatre - Mapping / Shadows / Shift / Document - Linbury Studio Theatre, ROH

    Press Review 3Rachel Ward, Telegraph, Thursday 27 November 2014Performance 25 - 29 November 2014

    This mixed bill ranges in tone and physicality, but the performers never let up in terms of energy, strength and passion; they emerge as an assured bunch, with great skill and drive. 

  11. Sylvie Guillem & Akram Khan - Sacred Monsters - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Financial Times, Thursday 27 November 2014Performance 25 - 29 November 2014

    It lacks a coherent shape, the choreography is hit-and-miss and the reminiscences and ponderings are more than a mite self-indulgent but the playful rapport between the two stars is impossible to resist. 

  12. Sylvie Guillem & Akram Khan - Sacred Monsters - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 5Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Thursday 27 November 2014Performance 25 - 29 November 2014

    …the work now seems simultaneously lighter and deeper, less an examination of their relationship with their own reputations and classical traditions, and more a statement of belief in the power and ritual potency of dance itself.

  14. Sylvie Guillem & Akram Khan - Sacred Monsters - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 26 November 2014Performance 25 - 29 November 2014

    The imminent loss of these two giant talents feels all the more poignant given how joyously they work together in this duet 

  15. Sylvie Guillem & Akram Khan - Sacred Monsters - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 26 November 2014Performance 25 - 29 November 2014

    Dance is full of romantic duets, but this is something else: it’s an image of a parallel journey.
