  5. Richard Alston Dance Company - An Italian in Madrid/Burning/Nomadic - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Luke Jennings, Observer, Thursday 31 March 2016Performance 29 & 30 March 2016

    Now 67, Alston shows no sign of slowing down. For me, and for others – judging from its reception – An Italian in Madrid is one of the year’s finest new works.

  8. Richard Alston Dance Company - An Italian in Madrid - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Rachel Elderkin, The Stage, Wednesday 30 March 2016Performance 29 & 30 March 2016

    Groups, solos and duets break ranks and run forward, flying through space with strong, powerful movement. It’s exciting, fast and punchy, a statement that this long-standing company can still hold its own today. 

  9. BalletLORENT - Snow White - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Neil Norman, The Stage, Wednesday 30 March 2016Performance 25 & 26 March 2016

    With a pre-recorded narration from Lindsay Duncan filleted from Duffy’s seductively witty and surreptitiously subversive text, this is high calibre entertainment. Incorporating very young children in the opening scenes as Snow White’s friends and later as forest animals 

  10. Richard Alston Dance Company - An Italian in Madrid/Burning/Nomadic - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 30 March 2016Performance 29 & 30 March 2016

    Patel is an astounding stage presence – spinning soundlessly across a flood of Scarlatti notes, collecting herself into a resonating stillness. 

  11. BalletLORENT - Snow White - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 30 March 2016Performance 25 & 26 March 2016

    Lorent makes beguiling use of her chorus of children, who tumble across the stage as Snow White’s childhood playmates and as an adorable menagerie of woodland creatures. 

  12. Ballet Black - Triple Bill - Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 30 March 2016Performance 18 & 19 March 2016

    The wild card in this triple bill comes from Arthur Pita, a choreographer who does things with ballet you don’t see anywhere else.

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Observer, Wednesday 30 March 2016Performance 18 & 19 March 2016

    Robinson is the staccato dancer par excellence, and Reich’s minimalist composition for glockenspiel and piccolo perfectly sets off her sharply incised line

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 30 March 2016Performance 26 February - 15 April 2016

    Muntagirov and Nuñez are technically thrilling; she, at her finest moments, can combine an absolute mastery of the choreography, with the illusion that she’s dancing it for the first time.
