    Review: Routes to the River - Big Dance 2014

    Samantha Whitaker, Tuesday 15 July 2014— Performance: 13 July 2014

    It’s not often I check the weather before going to see a dance production, but 'Routes to the River' takes place outside, in the parks and gardens between Siobhan Davies Studios & Southbank Ce… Continue Reading

    Review: Paul White - Anatomy of an Afternoon - Purcell Room, Southbank Centre

    Jeffrey Gordon Baker, Tuesday 15 July 2014— Performance: 10 & 11 July 2014

    The taut musculature of Mr White seems to almost ooze around the stage at a subtly shifting, humid pace... Continue Reading

  3. Brasil Brasileiro - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Liz Hoggard, Standard, Monday 14 July 2014Performance 8 - 27 July 2014

    Many of the dancers were recruited from the favelas rather than formal dance school, and this gives them a raw energy, as they switch from hyper-sexy to cartoon-tender in a second. Forget showgirls in feathers, this is sensuality rather than bootylicious cliché.

    Press Review 2Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 14 July 2014Performance 2 - 5 July 2014

    What’s so enjoyable about Mad Women is not just the dryness of its wit and its deft U-turns of fantasy, but also that it elicits such alert, intelligent performances from its cast.

  6. Paul White - Anatomy of an Afternoon - Purcell Room

    Press Review 5Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 14 July 2014Performance 10 & 11 July 2014

    We discover [Paul] White gripped by a narcoleptic torpor, from which he gradually rouses himself, assuming a series of quasi-animal forms – now spiderish, now ape-like – before driving himself to sweat-drenched exhaustion through a series of raw, self-exploratory rituals.  

  7. Les Saisons Russes du XX1 siècle - Le Coq d’Or - London Coliseum

    Press Review 4Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 14 July 2014Performance 8 - 10 July 2014

    Oleg Fomin is the idle, blustering King Dodon, Natalia Savelieva is the calculating Queen of Shemakha, all smouldering glances and sultry split jetés, and Pavel Okunev is the Golden Cockerel, a powerful and even threatening presence with his beating wings and stabbing feet.
