McGREGOR'S SIMULTANEOUS EXPLORATION OF THE INTERFACE BETWEEN BALLET AND MODERN DANCE, AND THE DYNAMIC CUSP BETWEEN ENERGY AND ENTROPY, PRODUCES DANCE THAT SKIDS AND DARTS ACROSS THE STATE YET HOLDS INTIMATIONS OF A DARK, LINGERING THREAT.
THE DANCERS BLAZE WITH INTELLIGENCE. THE AUDIENCE LOVE IT'

- Judith Mackrell, The Guardian

detritus is Wayne's first work for Rambert, and one of four works performed to celebrate the company’s 75th anniversary season.
