Winner of The Place Prize for Dance 2013 sponsored by Bloomberg, 'Athletes' is a work on competition viewed as tension between man and machine. Three enigmatic figures shift from solidarity to cruelty in a sparsely beautiful futuristic landscape created by the atmospheric, eye-slitting lights of Lucy Hansom and Michael Mannion. The costumes were designed by fashion designer Brooke Roberts.

'I wanted to create a dark piece using brightness, to build an engine using bodies, to show hate using love. Here things constantly transform into their opposite'. Riccardo Buscarini
