Review: THAT IS NOT WHO I AM (RAPTURE) at The Royal Court

A considerable amount of cloak and dagger hype has surrounded Dave Davidson’s first produced play now shocking audiences at the Royal Court — as befits a playwright who (as the blurb suggested), has worked in the security industry for nearly four decades!

“When Ollie has his identity stolen on the internet, it’s bad enough. But soon it’s not just his online life collapsing – his real life is being stolen too.

Review: THE RITE OF SPRING at Sadler’s Wells

Pina Bausch’s ground-breaking 1975 choreography for Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring has remained intact but here, embodied by a new generation of dancers assembled from various African countries, it has taken on an ecological urgency all its own.
