"[...], the standout piece was Young Men, a new commission, choreographed by Iván Pérez. The performance showed an excerpt of the as yet unfinished full-length piece, to be premiered at Sadlers Wells in January 2015. With the 100th anniversary of WW1, and the 70th anniversary of d-day, dance has embraced the opportunity to commemorate the war, with pieces being shown by many companies. Perez’s ‘Young Men’ was captivating, emotive and above all masculine. It combined film and live dance to great effect, really drawing in the audience, so that you dare not blink in case you miss something. Needless to say I have already bought tickets for the show in January, see you there!"
