Siobhan Davies's latest creation for her own company reaches London as the opening event of this year's Dance Umbrella Festival. When Wild Air was premiered at Oxford in May, Nadine Meisner's review for this paper praised the choreography for giving the dancers individual characteristics, "like different species of animal", and the dancers themselves, "all distinctive personalities, all consummately skilled". She was enthusiastic about Kevin Volans's beautiful live score, and David Buckland's futuristic setting. Peter Mumford's moody lighting shifts, from electric blue or turquoise to the grey of a soft dusk, were also applauded. Now is another chance to catch these qualities.
