Choice: the critics
Friday 15 September 1995
Lloyd Newson has been down the pub for an in-depth look at contemporary masculinity and the result is Enter Achilles, which had its British premiere in Newcastle last night after a successful European tour. Like all DV8's work it confronts a serious subject with wit and some startling choreography. See it at Newcastle Playhouse tonight (0191-230 5151), Bristol next week, then Manchester and Oxford.
Rambert Dance Co begins its autumn tour in Carlisle next Friday with a mixed bill that includes two Christopher Bruce classics: the intriguing Swansong and Rooster, the Rolling Stones extravaganza. The triple-bill is rounded off by Mark Baldwin's Banter Banter.
London City Ballet is adored by audiences of medium-sized theatres and the company is rewarding one such venue when it premieres Matthew Hart's Cinderella at the Orchard in Dartford next Thursday. Unusually for ballet productions of Cinderella, there will be no cross-dressing and incest is scarcely touched upon.
