Press 2017

“London’s oldest but still most vital festival of contemporary dance returns with a programme that searches out the city’s hidden stages, from Battersea power station to a derelict part of Silvertown and Trinity Buoy Wharf. Standout shows include Fallen from Heaven, a sublime and raunchy investigation of what it means to be a woman by the fiercely individual flamenco dancer Rocío Molina, and Lyon Opera Ballet’s epic, choreographic investigation of Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge, which is interpreted in three works by Lucinda Childs, Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker and Maguy Marin.”   

The Guardian 2017

“The annual festival of what’s new and offbeat in contemporary dance.” 

The Times 2017

“Since 1978, London’s unique Dance Umbrella international festival has offered a host of smart, genre-blending, and beautiful contemporary dance for our delectation. A line-up of international dance-makers, many of them barely known on these shores, will be showing off their wares in London this October.”
