"The polish of the Benyounes Quartet was new... they already seem seasoned veterans with their tight ensemble and confident projecton."

Shobana Jeyasingh Dance ‘Configurations’

Since January 2012 , we have been involved in a collaborative project with Shobana Jeyasingh Dance. ‘Configurations’ is the result of close work between the choreographer Shobana Jeyasingh and composer Michael Nyman, who wrote his string quartet based on South Indian (Bharata Natyam) rhythmic patterns. It is a 20 minute work full of vibrant energy and rhythmic intricacy between the quartet of dancers and the string quartet. The first performance was at British Dance Edition and we gave our BBC Radio 3 ‘In Tune’ debut as part of the project. Since then we have completed a tour in the UK and are looking forward to continuing performances.
