Following the revival of his classic Haunted Passages for autumn 2010’s Declarations tour, Reflected features the first UK performances of Philip Taylor’s mesmerising What It Is. Following three dancers on a journey through their relationships, choices and desires that is full of raw emotion, heartbreak and drama, the piece takes its name from one of two soulful, evocative Amy Winehouse songs which form the piece’s soundtrack, made even more poignant by recent tragic events.

Premiered: Jan 2011
