  1. Greenwich + Docklands Festival - Frantic / The Bench - Greenwich

    Press Review 3Lyn Gardner, Guardian, Monday 30 June 2014Performance 20 - 22 June 2014

    Acrojou’s Frantic makes cunning use of the German gymnastic wheel in a neatly put together piece in which acrobatics become a metaphor for finding the balance in life.

  3. English National Ballet - Glastonbury 2014

    Press Review 4Mark Beaumont, Guardian, Sunday 29 June 2014Performance 29 June 2014

    As the ballerinas slice and strike like the machines of this industrial slaughterhouse of a war, the soldier contorts in death-throes across the stage, ultimately merging with the principal ballerina in a tragic marriage of man and mud.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 26 June 2014Performance 25 - 28 June 2014

    Kiss and Cry works the best kind of stage magic, creating its drama from the simplest of means. And no less essential to its spell is the “scenery” created by the busy crew of technicians, who dart around the stage using miniature figures, doll’s house …

    Wednesday 25 June 2014 by Carmel Smith

  11. Eastman - Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui – 4D - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 24 June 2014Performance 23 & 24 June 2014

    …the four live duets, all filleted from past works to make up his new programme 4D, here come across as being preoccupied with humans’ even more fundamental physical and emotional needs. 

  12. Eastman - Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui – 4D - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 24 June 2014Performance 23 & 24 June 2014

    In Pure, the dancers’ relationship is mediated through calligraphy, the woman painting herself as she moves, the man tenderly trying to erase the marks. Sin is a duet of fierce erotic grappling, bodies clinging and fighting in hellish symbiosis. In Faun, Cherkaoui …

  15. Dada Masilo - Swan Lake - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4ZOË ANDERSON, Independent, Tuesday 24 June 2014Performance 17 & 18 June 2014

    Masilo herself plays the Swan Queen, skipping and stamping her way through a solo with sharp attack. A ululating wedding procession looks amazing. Hip shimmies make the bouncing tutu skirts fluff up into puffballs, while the rippling torsos and stamping feet are gorgeous…
