Melancholy Thoughts/Shot Flow/In Broken Tendrils/Front LineMelancholy Thoughts
- is a work for six dancers set to Astor Piazzolla's Histoire du Tango. Shot Flow
- is an exciting duet which explores the relationship between two people governed by their environment, with physical and emotional energy reacting to shifts of rhythm, disturbances and interruptions in their surroundings. With a rising score by fast-rising Portuguese composer Pedro Carneiro, this duet blends music, light and movement in a sexy, almost cinematic drama of fluctuating emotions. Broken Tendrils
- a full company work to the lush and often satirical orchestration of Bela Bartok's 2nd Violin Concerto. Front Line
- a sextet to Shostakovich 9th Quartet in E Flat. Shifting moods, squealing instruments, wild stamping dances represent the composer's retreat into thoughts of death and stillness.
