A review of the British Ballet Charity Gala by Lyndsey Winship in The Guardian.

Quote

So instead of fireworks, there’s the thoughtfulness of Will Tuckett’s Then or Now, made for Ballet Black. Set to poems by Adrienne Rich it is arresting in its own way, performed by a company of strong individuals topped off by the silken quality of Cira Robinson’s dancing. Or Kenneth Tindall’s Bitter Earth, full of visual harmony, a trio (maybe a threesome) in ever-changing formation, 12 limbs beautifully arranged. Each move spurs the next in a chain reaction, the group splitting and reforming like mercury droplets.

 Bossov Ballet Theatre presents an outdoor performance.

Quote

But it was clear that these young dancers from Pittsfield and other Maine towns, as well as those from all over the world, are wise beyond their years. They love music and dance, and have absorbed like sponges the art and skill that Getman has taught them in the rigorous program.
