Reviews and audience feedback for Bayadère – The Ninth Life

A big Thank You to everyone who came to Bayadère – The Ninth Life at The Lowry and Sadler’s Wells. We received a phenomenal response to our first full-length performances at both venues.


Reviews and audience feedback:

‘True to form, Jeyasingh’s take on the classical ballet fantasy La Bayadère is shot through with her innate intelligence, instinct for composition and a typically astute choice of collaborators.’  Donald Hutera, The Times

‘Intelligent, thought-provoking, immensely accomplished in its choreography, staging and dancing.’ Culture Whisper

‘An intriguing critique of imperialism, orientalism and the male gaze’ Exeunt

‘Jeyasingh’s choreography achieves heights of arresting beauty’ Bachtrack

‘All the performers are superb in the execution of their craft. It’s a bold experiment’


Really enjoyed @SJeyasinghDance fascinating take on Le Bayadere, carried out succinctly and wittily @HFulleylove1

Great to see @SJeyasinghDance’s #Bayadère9thlife @Sadlers_Wells on Weds! Breathtaking final sequence, and Avatâra Ayuso magnetic as always! @Emily_Long_Long

Technology, Ballet, Bharatanatyam, Contemporary… @SJeyasinghDance draws together an eclectic mix of styles in #Bayadere9thlife #Dance @Rachel_Elderkin
