Fourteen Days: Reviews

Judith Mackrell, The Guardian ****

“Aside from the elegant, circling intricacies of its opening section, this piece takes the company to a place of rare beauty, in a section of angelically suspended lifts, rolls, balances and falls that not only seem to liberate these powerful male bodies from gravity but to suspend the passage of time.”

Debra Craine, The Times ****

“First things first. The BalletBoyz look terrific. Michael Nunn and William Trevitt’s all-male troupe is in tip-top shape, as evidenced by this mixed bill of mostly new choreography. With one outstanding performance after another, it doesn’t seem to matter what they dance. The result is always the same — fantastic.”

Laura Freeman, Evening Standard

“Fourteen Days: A perfect balance of fluid footwork and brash fun”

Vikki Vile, Culture Whisper ****

“In Fourteen Days BalletBoyz bring us an eclectic quartet of new works from four choreographers, all of whom were challenged to put together their creation in 14 days, exploring themes of balance and imbalance. The choreographers were also paired up with composers and the result is a varied but largely successful evening. “

Raymond Langford Jones, Sardines ****

“With consummate athleticism and musicality, the programme proves once again how this company breaks down and fuses the conventional genres to provide an absorbing evening of dance.”

Keith Watson, Metro ****

“To make things even more heavyweight, the second half is a golden chance to catch the Boyz on top form, reviving Russell Maliphant’s Fallen, one of the modern master’s finest works. De Frutos took the challenging theme of ‘balance’ to heart, creating a work on a seesaw; Pérez sends the dancers skipping in circles like fairground horses; but the undoubted highlight is Wheeldon’s Us, a stripped-back duet set to a beautiful score by Keaton Henson. Here was proof that less is more, the dancers entwined with each other and the aching string-laden music creating images that lingered long after the curtain call.”

Siobhan Murphy, DanceTabs ****

“The 11 dancers exude confidence; their technical skills are superb and they work together with intuitive fluidity. Most importantly for this latest BalletBoyz programme, they show a lithe adaptability as they hurtle through five very different pieces of choreography.”
