Press Quotes  
"...a score that is highly varied in texture and colour. Themes are introduced, laid open, symmetrically flipped, and reduced to single shafts of sound that hang blade-like in the air... a playful collaboration brimming with ideas."
The Observer

"The relationship between dance and music is lucid. Turnage's brilliantly coloured and stridently rhythmic score has distinct sections. Within each are moments of lovely, graphic accord with the choreography: a slow plangent loop of melody that drives a sequence of wheeling arm movements, a thick cluster of rhythms that accompany an elaborate wrestling duet..."
The Guardian
