Eva Yerbabuena – Apariencias – London

★★★✰✰   The show is divided into six segments that feel like short poems, each looking to explore a different idea about identity and appearance.

Israel Galván – FLA.CO.MEN – London

★★★✰✰   The Seville-born dancer Israel Galván is the most avant-garde flamenco artist performing today, constantly taking the art form apart, ruffling feathers and exploding preconceptions.

Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch – Masurca Fogo – London

★★★★✰   How do you find the soul of a city? It was a challenge that Pina Bausch and her company took on again and again with their World Cities series of tanztheater works – and “Masurca Fogo”, made in 1998, must rank as one of the most successful attempts.

Jonathan Burrows, Matteo Fargion & Hugo Glendinning – 52 Portraits – London

★★★✰✰   The portraits are probably not a way into dance for someone who wasn’t already interested – and it’s probably better to watch them in small doses. However, they do remind us of something rather lovely…

Royal Ballet / Royal Opera – Les Enfants Terribles – London

★★★✰✰   The story line becomes as labyrinthine as the ribbons of tape that criss-cross Paul’s bedroom.

English National Ballet – Giselle – London

★★★✰✰   Elisa Badenes and Cesar Corrales delivered a good professional show, if it was not the runaway success I had perhaps hoped for.

Royal Ballet – Woolf Works – London

★★★✰✰   The ballet’s narrative interest depends on the dancer, and both performers are magnificent – different in tone and physicality, though not markedly so.
