★★★★★   Pita’s Salome is pure postmodern dance-theater, and a five-star surprise on the Opera House stage.

RAWdance – Double Exposure – San Francisco

★★★★✰   Sixteen choreographers, 13 new works, 2 dancers, 70 minutes, 4 years in the making. That’s the equation for Double Exposure, premiered by the San Francisco contemporary-dance duo RAWdance on Thursday, July 28. It’s an epic production that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet – Kylian, Pite and Stromgren bill – London

‘Necessity, Again’ ends the programme on a high. Kylian’s ‘Indigo Rose’ is an effective opener, provided you don’t find yourself asking why he made the choices he did.
