    Review: New Movement Collective - Please Be Seated - Southbank Centre

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Monday 17 November 2014— Performance: 11 & 12 November 2014

    The work could have been read as privileging form over heart, function over humanity, but this seemed to be partially the point... Continue Reading

    Review: Cullberg Ballet - Plateau Effect - Sadler's Wells

    Siobhan Murphy, Monday 17 November 2014— Performance: 13 & 14 November, 2014

    The dancers move into a thrillingly odd display of rhythmic jerking & shuddering that resembles an achingly hip zombie rave. I could have watched them all night; it felt so joyfully liberating I wanted to join in. Continue Reading

  3. Royal Ballet - Ceremony Of Innocence / The Age Of Anxiety / Aeternum – Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 16 November 2014Performance 7 - 17 November 2014

    Liam Scarlett’s translation of the poem into dance is a sincere but misconceived exercise.  

  4. Jasmin Vardimon Company - Park - Sadler's Wells

    A mermaid statue comes to life, a misogynist rapper throws himself onto metal railings, lovers squeal and seduce, buskers coo, dogs bark, a tourist clicks a camera, a large bottomed bag lady becomes... Continue Reading

    Review: zero visibility corp. …it’s only a rehearsal - Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells

    Josephine Leask, Thursday 13 November 2014— Performance: 11 & 12 November 2014

    In spite of its minimalistic setting and pure movement focus Ina Christina Johannessen's duet manages to shock and disturb. Continue Reading
