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 created by fashion designer Brooke Roberts in collaboration with Kishan Maynard-Clarke.

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