  1. Eifman Ballet - Rodin - London Coliseum

    Press Review 2Debra Craine, The Times, Thursday 17 April 2014Performance 15 - 17 April 2014

    The constant stream of swirling emotions and fevered memories makes it impossible to tell whose story is being told at any given time, especially since the whole thing feels like a flashback told in reverse. Or maybe both Rodin and Camille are having simultaneous, deat… 

  2. National Youth Dance Company - Vertical Road / The Rashomon Effect - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Thursday 17 April 2014Performance 16 April 2014

    Its [The Rashomon Effect] massed, rhythmic effects and weighty symbolic load share an affinity with Vertical Road, but the piece also taps more directly into the spirit of youth: it has less control but more surprise, and if it starts erratically it ends astonishingly.  

  3. Eifman Ballet - Rodin - London Coliseum

    Press Review 1Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 16 April 2014Performance 15 - 17 April 2014

    You long for the interval. You wonder why music can be so brutalised and so inapt for its task. You wonder what Russian audiences can see in this tosh.  

  4. Eifman Ballet - Rodin - London Coliseum

    Press Review Hanna Weibye, artsdesk.com, Wednesday 16 April 2014Performance 15 - 17 April 2014

    You’d be forgiven for expecting better with this story material. But all Eifman can muster is two hours of vulgarly reductive cliché, in a ballet that must offend lovers, geniuses, muses, sculptors, mental patients and women everywhere.  

  5. Eifman Ballet - Rodin - London Coliseum

    Press Review 2Zoë Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 16 April 2014Performance 15 - 17 April 2014

    Eiman’s choreography is dominated by deep squats and splayed legs. A busy ensemble play supporting roles. Whether they’re art students, peasants, cancan dancers or a horde of critics, they treat this as the gurning Olympics.

    Review: Les Ballets de Monte Carlo - LAC (After Swan Lake), Coliseum

    Lise Smith, Monday 14 April 2014— Performance: 9 - 12 April 2014

    The most recent in a long line of choreographers creating their own interpretations of Tchaikovsky’s truly iconic ballet score is Jean-Christophe Maillot, who brought his company Les Ballets de Monte Carlo to … Continue Reading

  7. Company 2 - She Would Walk the Sky - Roundhouse

    Press Review 3Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Monday 14 April 2014Performance 9 - 17 April 2014

    The show is at its best when the physicality is allowed to do the talking. There’s some delightful trick-biking, and fine rope work. Performers prance across the wire apparently unaware of the drop below, even when they are hanging upside down.
