Crushed @ The King’s Head Theatre Review

Set during the London protests of 2010, the award winning Crushed depicts the lives of three university students over the course of several years. A story of lost innocence, we watch the friends fervently unite over a political cause, before entering the working world where they succumb to political apathy and the numbing influence of the daily grind.

No Lander @ The Place Dance Theatre Review

No Lander is a striking production presented by Riccardo Buscarini working in collaboration with The Place Theatre. It is an exploratory piece discovering a sense of longing and belonging, through the medium of dance. Both a tribute to the choreographer’s classical studies and a melancholic subtle meditation on the themes of Homer’s Odyssey, No Lander is a combination of the body meeting a broad theme. No Lander forms a discourse, evaluating the anthropological state and evolvement of human instincts.

Roosevelvis @ The Royal Court

Quirky, witty and totally bizarre, Rachel Chavkin’s Roosevelvis is one of many contemporary productions hitting the Royal Court‘s books this year. An interesting team up in the form of Teddy Roosevelt and Elvis Presley, who both manage to acquire a great many laughs from the live audience. Exploring the realms of music, history and most importantly their own personal achievements. With this you begin to get a real sense of what these two well-known American figures may have been like. With a comedic twist of course.

Tiger Tale @ The Lilian Baylis Studio (Sadler’s Wells) Review

We walk down the steps, into the space and are instantly welcomed by what can only be described as a caged stage, roped fencing and orange fur cover the pathway, buckets strung up from the ceiling and present within the enclosure are three characters, everyone, masked with a bucket. The music plays and we begin to question the sense of absurdity, we take our seats within the ‘In the round’ style seating, analysing the simple movements and interaction of these characters. The lights go down and the show begins.
