Arthur Pita & HeadSpaceDance – Stepmother / Stepfather – London

★★★★✰   Those of a nervous disposition, look away now. The dark, twisted inventiveness of Arthur Pita runs riot across this double-bill of bad parenting, sweeping up murder, suicide, incest and a little light cannibalism as it goes.

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.
