Some dancers have a defining attribute: Sylvie Guillem’s ear-high extensions, Alina Cojocaru’s airy delicacy, Natalia Osipova’s enormous jump. But what makes Cuthbertson special is more to do with the quality of her presence. Her performances are very personal: you never see a cliched gesture or a “ballet dancer expression”. Even in abstract work, her dancing is peculiarly spontaneous, transparent in its lack of rhetoric or airs.
