“Dance Umbrella is 40 this year and on great form: still curious, still adventurous, still bringing over artists new to the UK”  
The Guardian 2018


“The London dance fest turns 40 this year and it’s sexier and flexier than ever.”
Time Out  2018


“Celebrates the 40th anniversary of London’s flagship dance festival this year with a series of bold, sometimes bonkers, pieces scattered across the capital.”
Evening Standard 2018


“And there is plenty of room for bright ideas and risky endeavours. The annual modern dance festival, Dance Umbrella, gives all comers a go”
Sunday Express 2019 Dance Round Up


“London’s Dance Umbrella festival has a knack for programming artists who seem to inhabit genres of their own, like Le Patin Libre’s contemporary ice-skating and the Greek choreographer Dimitris Papaioannou’s distinctive stripped-back dance-theatre.”
The Guardian 2018


“In its 40th anniversary season, Dance Umbrella opens appropriately with New York’s Big Dance Theater in a production of 17c directed by choreographer Annie-B Parson. Its inclusion in the program is both a sign of the intelligent and risk-taking selection process that characterises this annual festival and of the diverse strands that define contemporary dance.”
