  1. Northern Ballet - Little Monsters/The Architect/Perpetuum Mobile/A Northern Trilogy/Angels in the Architecture - Linbury Studio Theatre

    Press Review 3Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 15 May 2015Performance 12 - 14 May, 2015

    Jonathan Watkins’ A Northern Trilogy is crowd-pleasing but intelligent, gently illustrating three comic monologues by Stanley Holloway (about Yorkshire pudding, a drunken soldier and a boy eaten by a lion) while stopping nicely short of literalism. 

  2. Rambert - Frames / Four Elements / Dark Arteries - Sadler's Wells

    It’s only in the long middle section evoking the miners’ embattled history that Dark Arteries realises its potential – and does so magnificently, in churning, seething ensembles of dance, shot through with heart-racingly combative virtuosity.

    Review: Rambert - Frames / Four Elements / Dark Arteries - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Wednesday 13 May 2015 — Performance: 12 - 16 May 2015

    While this was far from being among my favourite Rambert programmes, I continue to admire the company’s remarkable dancers and applaud Mark Baldwin for his bold, commissioning policies... Continue Reading

    Wayne McGregor’s new Woolf Works glows with ambition, crowned by Alessandra Ferri’s charismatic central performance.
