Dance Review: Brasil Brasileiro at Sadlers Wells

This summer, samba extravaganza Brasil Brasileiro returned to Sadlers Wells to give Londoners a full flavoured taste of Brazil but without the drama that was the World Cup. Dance is one of Brazil’s greatest exports and director Claudio Segovia’s show takes the audience on a journey that is a history lesson and carnival combined.

Snap of the Week: New Technicolour Kings Cross Station Entrance

London commutes tend to be dull affairs with a steel and concrete backdrop. Grey, grey and grey encasing human cattle on their way to the office. Which is why a little joy was had when I first walked through the new King's Boulevard entrance to King's Cross station. The new entrance is long and winding - which describes a lot of King's Cross station - but this lends itself to the glorious colour changing wall panel flowing from shimmering whites to pretty pinks to sparkly blues. It feels like the set of a sci-fi film with a psychedelic twist.
