QUaRteT

Lighting is a key feature of Marguerite Caruana Galizia's QUaRteT, by turns obscuring and exposing the dancers in silhouette and floodlight, emphasising the work's sense of intense disjuncture. Solos come together but never quite become duets; one half of the stage is divided from the other by a menacing line of tape; broken chairs are stacked in a corner and suspended from the ceiling; a soundtrack of foreign radio broadcasts and static is repeatedly interrupted. In a coherent and clearly envisioned work, the performers' repeated falling, turning and reaching actions suggest a frustrated desire to connect with one another.
