Malevo. Review by Barbara Lewis. Any thoughts the scheduled ninety minutes might be too long for a macho display of virility were banished by a superbly coordinated frenzy of frantic footwork and brilliant bravado.
Our Voices. Review by Julia Pascal. This mixed bill is a curious evening where the separate parts do not form an organic whole. George Balanchine’s 1947 Themes and Variations thrilled the audience who gasped when the curtain rose on tutued dancers.
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker & Pavel Kolesnikov/Rosas/the Goldberg Variations. Review by Julia Pascal.

Pascal Theatre Company Press Release. Julia Pascal. Pascal Theatre Company is proud to announces a £43,500 award from the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund and is among 925 recipients to benefit from the latest round of awards from the Culture Recovery Fund.
