  1. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker - Work/Travail/Arbei - Tate Modern

    Press Review 2Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 18 July 2016Performance 8 - 10 July 2016

    De Keersmaeker’s choreography – slow sways, shuffles, swinging turns, pounding runs – is calculatedly unshowy, and a lot less interesting than the music.  

  2. Australian Ballet - Swan Lake - London Coliseum

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 18 July 2016Performance 13 - 16 July 2016

    If Murphy’s dramatic template is classical, he works hard to give his characters a more contemporary edge.

    Review: Australian Ballet - Swan Lake - London Coliseum

    Graham Watts, Friday 15 July 2016 — Performance: 13 - 16 July 2016

    Murphy’s lore of the lake is not so much a refurbishment of the traditional story and its iconic classical, Imperial Russian choreography; more a complete brick-by-brick deconstruction... Continue Reading

    Review: Paco Peña Flamenco Dance Company - Patrias - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Thursday 14 July 2016 — Performance: 12 - 16 July 2016

    This is a serious & beguiling work, uplifted by all the flamenco arts ( guitar, song, dance, percussion) but also through pacey theatrical direction from Peña’s long-term artistic consultant, Jude Kelly. Continue Reading

    Press Review 3Neil Norman, The Stage, Wednesday 13 July 2016Performance 12 - 16 July 2016

    After an evocative opening tribute to Lorca with Pena and two solo dancers (Angel Munoz and Mayte Bajo) who emerge like interrogatory ghosts, the remaining show proceeds in fits and starts.

    Press Review 3Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 13 July 2016Performance 12 - 16 July 2016

    The performers don’t act, but rather focus our attention on the subtleties of sound and the inflections of Fernando Romero’s choreography. Instead of projecting outwards, they pull us in. It’s utterly captivating.

    Review: Step into Dance - Step Live! - Sadler's Wells

    Carole Edrich, Wednesday 13 July 2016 — Performance: 9 July 2016

    The Step Into Dance programme is now the biggest secondary dance school in the UK and a creditable embodiment of co-founder Sir Jack Petchey's message to the dancers: “If you think you can, you can!” Continue Reading
