★★★★✰   What impresses overall is the clarity of the technique; the precision and control it requires. And the way it enlarges the dancers, distilling their strengths, stretching them to the limit.

GERALDCASELDANCE – Cover Your Mouth When You Smile, Thirdperson, Fluster – San Francisco

★★★✰✰   Evaluating works in progress is a peculiar exercise. Without knowing what parts of a dance are complete or still conceptual, or where they fit within the context of a larger yet to be created piece a review is a guessing game.

Tere O’Connor Dance – Undersweet, Transcendental Daughter – New York

★★★★✰   Structure and meaning lie at the heart of O’Connor’s work. With Undersweet he has achieved a perfect balance.

SFDanceworks – Concerto Six Twenty-Two, Lickety Split, Joe & Ida, Portrait, Z – San Francisco

★★★✰✰   With this first season, Sofranko has proved himself a good curator of choreographic and dance talent, with a preference for loveliness in movement and movers.

Northern Ballet – Concerto Six Twenty-Two, Concertante, The Architect – Leeds

Overall I thought this was another move forward for Tindall – he can grab our attention theatrically and also provide visceral choreographic texture.

Northern Ballet – Concerto Six Twenty-Two, Concertante, Luminous Junc•ture – London

I thoroughly applaud the move to widen the choreographic vocabulary of what they present and I hope they can tour such a bill in future. A bravo to David Nixon (AD) and Mark Skipper (Chief Exec) for making this happen…

Yale School of Music & Yale School of Drama – The Soldier’s Tale – New York
