  3. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Ahnen - Sadler’s Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 27 April 2015Performance 23 - 26 April 2015

    Bausch seems to be portraying our world through the eyes of a visiting alien, choreographing a comedy of touching, silly, cruel, occasionally enchanting but ultimately pointless human activity. 

  4. Les Ballets de Monte Carlo - Roméo et Juliette - London Coliseum

    Press Review 3David Jays, Guardian, Monday 27 April 2015Performance 23 - 25 April 2015

    On a set of curved white walls, Maillot declutters the ballet’s epic realism: there are no harlots, prissy sword fights or members of the corps de ballet pretending to sell things to each other. Instead, pale-toned Capulets meet Montagues in costumes of purple and char… 

  5. Les Ballets de Monte Carlo - Roméo et Juliette - London Coliseum

    Press Review 3Jane Shilling, Telegraph, Monday 27 April 2015Performance 23 - 25 April 2015

    This is a Romeo and Juliet stripped of fustian trappings, in which exuberant bonds of male friendship, mother-daughter conflict and the flowering of first love are explored with tender psychological acuity.

    Review: Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Ahnen - Sadler’s Wells

    Lise Smith, Saturday 25 April 2015 — Performance: 23 - 26 April 2015

    There’s a feeling of global wandering... and the desert evoked by the giant (and undeniably phallic) cacti seems less of a physical location and more a place of the soul.  Continue Reading

  12. Royal Ballet - La Fille mal gardée - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 22 April 2015Performance 16 April - 5 May 2015

    When Muntagirov is dancing his solo variations, he rises to moments of transcendence, his long legs and arms sustaining beautiful shapes in the air and finding their own music within the choreography. 

  13. Royal Ballet - La Fille mal gardée - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 5Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Wednesday 22 April 2015Performance 16 April - 5 May 2015

    Add a plucky quintet of chickens, a decorous octet of friends, fine (if occasionally hurried) work from the corps and zesty playing from the pit, and you have an evening that effervesced from start to finish with life, love and laughter.
