Review of this production at SBC in The Times.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>ERROLLYN WALLEN is a prolific, talented British composer whose work was the spine of this joint music and dance concert. The too-cute name of this South Bank one-off proved to be all too apt. <BR>The evening began reasonably well with the London premiere of Wallen’s La Luga, performed by the Ensemble X String Quartet and Tom McKinney. The foursome fretted away to provide aural webbing for the guitar. This muscular yet delicate piece eventually took a Spanish turn, but first came a choreographic intervention by the dancer Donna Meierdiercks, the show’s producer. She rolled on to the stage, shifting between spidery or embryonic shapes, crawling on her back and springing on to her hands. Her short solo, clear and strong, shaded the music even after she had rolled off. <P><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,685-365439,00.html" TARGET=_blank> <B> MORE </B> </A>

A review in The Sunday Times.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Calling your show A Dancing Dog’s Breakfast makes it a hostage to fortune at the best of times. This one-off programme at the South Bank’s Purcell Room came not just bound and gagged, but giftwrapped. With noodles. The music of the prolific young composer Errollyn Wallen provided some sort of backbone to the evening, which began promisingly with her Steve-Reich-does-Rodrigo quintet, La Luga. To this, Donna Meierdiercks performed a sensitively choreographed routine — like someone tossing and turning her way out of agitated dreams — to the slow second movement. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2101-370680,00.html" TARGET=_blank> <B> MORE </B> </A>
