★★★✰✰ Birmingham Royal Ballet's latest bill, Carlos Curates: R&J Reimagined, had the company dancing in Edward Clug's Radio and Juliet (★★✰✰✰) and presenting Rosie Kay Dance Company in their new Romeo + Juliet (★★★★✰)
Tag - Romeo + Juliet
★★★✰✰ All up this is a most thoughtful and involving R&J for our time, one that with some dramatic honing will have a long life and which can speak powerfully to both new and old audiences. It's a dance of consequence, as ever, from Rosie Kay.
Rosie Kay’s new and radical take on "Romeo + Juliet" gets premiered on the 8 September at the Birmingham Hippodrome. Foteini Christofilopoulou with a heads-up & special shoot direct from the dance studio.
★★★★✰ It's been a long time since I've seen a piece of dance theatre quite so moving and thought-provoking as Adult Female Dancer.
The balcony pas de deux, what all the paramours have come to see, is decent. There are the sweeping, leg splitting lifts, drippy back drapes (so much so that Hyltin at times looks dead), and romantic clutches in abundance.
