  1. In the Wings in Peter and the Wolf at Hackney Empire

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 10 April 2006Performance 28 Mar - 16 Apr

    ‘It’s no surprise that it’s Prokofiev that inspires Elkins’ best work: gymnastic ballet solos for the bird, seriously menacing kung-fu kicks for the wolf, and hilarious breakdance moves for the poor old duck…’ 

  2. In the Wings in Peter and the Wolf at Hackney Empire

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 10 April 2006Performance 28 Mar - 16 Apr

    ‘Children around me found it magical and credible — witness the sighs of “Aah” when “the wolf swallowed the duck at one gulp”.’ 

  3. In the Wings in Peter and the Wolf at Hackney Empire

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 10 April 2006Performance 28 Mar - 16 Apr

    ‘Michael Downing’s duck, in particular, is a creation of great loveliness – all bum and knees and ponderous waddle.’ 

  4. Russell Maliphant Company in Triple Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 10 April 2006Performance 6 & 7 April

    ‘As time has passed, however, Maliphant’s work has seemed to stand still, and to offer nothing except the endless reworking of its original components.’ 

  5. Russell Maliphant Company in Triple Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Sunday 9 April 2006Performance 6 & 7 April

    ‘What’s mesmerising about Transmission is the way it consecrates the mystery of the group – unifying the dancers into a cooperative entity that appears to operate by instinct and by exquisitely organised rules.’  

  6. In the Wings in Peter and the Wolf at Hackney Empire

    Press Review Elena Seymenliyska, Telegraph, Sunday 9 April 2006Performance 28 Mar - 16 Apr

    ‘The choreography provides only sporadic relief. Doug Elkins has fused ballet with street dancing, martial arts and music videos.’ 

  7. In the Wings in Peter and the Wolf at Hackney Empire

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Sunday 9 April 2006Performance 28 Mar - 16 Apr

    ‘There’s a decent performance of Peter and the Wolf at the heart of this production, but you have to wait to get to it.’
