    Siobhan Murphy, Friday 24 July 2015 — Performance: 22 - 25 July 2015

    Performance reviewed: 22 July Think of a touristic cliché – pretty much any touristic cliché – of Mexico and it almost certainly appears somewhere in Ballet Folklórico de México’s dazzlingly slick show… Continue Reading

  2. Arbonauts - The Desire Machine - Brunel Tunnel Shaft

    Press Review 2Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Friday 24 July 2015Performance 14 - 25 July, 2015

    Arbonauts, who have previously created work in Nunhead cemetery, are attracted to the dark and mysterious, and they don’t like to give too much away. By taking that approach, they don’t necessarily do themselves any favours.

    Review: New Adventures - The Car Man - Sadler's Wells

    Josephine Leask, Tuesday 21 July 2015 — Performance: 14 July - 9 August, 2015
