"Take one of the world's most enduring stories of passionate love and the madness it can engender, strip it down to its most basic elements, and infuse it with all the psychological tension and dread of film noir, and the result would be Tulsa Ballet's Carmen choreographed by Kenneth Tindall." -

James D Watts Jr, Tulsa World

'(Geisha) ultimately, it is Tindall's superlative skills as a choreographer, his very distinctive voice coming through and his ability to adapt this voice to express an unusual story, that makes this another winner,' - Deborah Weiss, The Dancing Times

'Luminous Junc•ture is a hymn of hope with a dance language both lyrical and brutal. Tindall makes you think while throughly enjoying every minute'​ -

Jeffrey Taylor, Sunday Express

Casanova is an impressive and exhilerating evening of ballet' -

On 16th Feburary, 2019,  Milwaukee Ballet premiered Kenneth's Beyond the Break as part of the Genesis 2019 programme. The work went on to win the Audience Vote. In Autumn 2019, Kenneth created Polarity, a new ballet for Cape Town City Ballet in South Africa.


In March 2020, Northern Ballet presented the world premiere of Kenneth's second full-evening ballet, Geisha. which received critical acclaimed from the UK press just prior to national lockdown. Currently developing new work for the digital screen, Kenneth's newest work, States of Mind made its stage debut at Sadler's Wells in June 2021.
