  1. McOnie Company - Drunk - Bridewell Theatre

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Guardian, Sunday 23 February 2014Performance 5 February - 1 March 2014

    The Boat Race section… is brilliantly funny and shows that McOnie has more to offer than slickness. If he can sustain that level of inventiveness, and avoid the temptation to fall back on hackneyed razzle-dazzle, he’s got an interesting future ahead of him.  

  2. Royal Ballet - The Sleeping Beauty - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Telegraph, Sunday 23 February 2014Performance 22 February - 9 April 2014

    His management of the swooping fish dives in the grand pas de deux was exemplary. Pyrotechnicians aren’t usually known for their partnering but McRae can make every duet seem made to measure.

    Lara Hayward, Friday 21 February 2014 — Performance: 18 February - 8 March 2014

    As one big live interactive MTV music video party, the beauty of 'Blaze' is that it is dance for the audience’s sake. Pull on your trainers, get down to the Peacock and be part of it. Continue Reading

  5. Blaze - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 5Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 21 February 2014Performance 18 February - 8 March 2014

    I love its all-out eagerness, and the skill with which Anthony van Laast, its director, has marshalled his forces, and I love especially the extravagant bravura of its three breakdancers.

    ‘Blaze’ is no-brains fun. From Es Devlin’s versatile towering cupboard set and Beatrice Jolly’s bold, fluorescent costumes to the pumping Lady Gaga remixes and Jackson 5 classics, this show swaggers confidently through its 90 minutes.  

  9. Blaze - Peacock Theatre

  10. Blaze - Peacock Theatre

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Telegraph, Thursday 20 February 2014Performance 18 February - 8 March 2014

    Like any good dance show, the content is built around the talents of the current troupe… Carlos Neto, Virgil “Sky Chief” Dey and the truly remarkable Jeffrey “Machine” McCann…show off their head and shoulder spins in a dazzling display of power moves.

    Press Review 4Luke Jennings, Guardian, Sunday 16 February 2014Performance 7, 8, 11, 13, 15 February 2014

    Hayward dances, as every Ashtonian must, with her eyes; she is at once the obedient instrument of the choreographer’s vision and the radiantly assured performer seizing her chance.
