White Christmas, The Place, London threestar
by ZOE ANDERSON for the Independent

Studio theatres are usually painted black - absorbing light, helping to conceal scenery changes from an audience sitting very close. This year, the specialist dance theatre The Place celebrates Christmas by repainting its stage area, making a bright white box. Over the next fortnight, 37 choreographers will show short (often new) works in this shiny white setting.

White Christmas
by JUDITH MACKRELL for the Guardian

There was a fizzing of theatre magic, too, at the end of the evening when Luca Silvestrini premiered the first of his 10 variations on a theme of Bing Crosby's White Christmas. This turned out to be even more extravagantly silly than one could have predicted, a steamroom fantasy that was part Busby Berkeley, part Pina Bausch.
