Nitin Sawhney / Sébastien Ramirez & Honji Wang — Dystopian Dream – London

★★✰✰✰   According to a programme note by the Wang Ramirez duo, they have turned Sawhney’s album into ‘a fully choreographed show. What will be shown on stage is the result of our interpretation of what has been discussed, researched, felt and exchanged during our meetings.’

Nitin Sawhney with special guests Sebastien Ramirez and Honji Wang – Concert – London

★★★★✰   It’d be a misnomer to call the evening a dance show – I was hoping Wang Ramirez would have more stage time than they did …but it was a cohesive production in any case, with some bracing, if fleeting, choreography on offer.

No Body – Installations by Lucy Carter, Michael Hulls, Nitin Sawhney, Siobhan Davies and Russell Maliphant – London

★★★✰✰   No Body was an interesting diversion, that confirms the artistic chops of the technical talent that makes so many shows pop and zing. As an exercise I hope it might be repeated every few years.

Akram Khan Company – Kaash – London

★★★★✰ Even without Khan’s charismatic presence Kaash is a fiercely physical and engrossing hour in the theatre…

Akram Khan – Kaash – San Francisco

In Khan’s choreography, kathak’s warp-speed spins and fierce gestures are immediately recognizable yet subverted and sculpted by contemporary weightedness and extended lines.

Sadler’s Wells – Spring / Summer 2013 Programming

It’s the name of the game that one does not necessarily appreciate all plans (or indeed how they crystallise out in practice) but I have to say that Sadler’s Wells set a benchmark re new work/experiences and for where you want a progressive art to be.
