    Review: Shobana Jeyasingh - Bayadère – the Ninth Life - Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Lise Smith, Thursday 26 March 2015 — Performance: 25 - 28 March 2015

    'Bayadère - The Ninth Life' is an interesting work overall & very nearly a brilliant one. There’s much to be admired, as usual, about Jeyasingh’s command of material & her exc… Continue Reading

    Press Review 3Neil Norman, The Stage, Thursday 26 March 2015Performance 25 - 28 March 2015

    While never less than intriguing – a girl-on-girl duet with feet planted in armpits is extraordinary – its dusky eroticism and sinuous, tantric gestures end up reinforcing the stereotypical image of the dancers rather than challenging it.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Tuesday 24 March 2015Performance 20 - 21 March, 2015

    This revival is staged by Candoco, a company of disabled and able-bodied dancers, and here the group is expanded to embrace a range of ages, races, shapes and sizes. In its diversity, it’s actually a real celebration of ordinariness, as universal as the show’s TOTP2 …
