Tailback was first performed by Junior Trinity College of Music and Laban Youth Dance Programme on the 11th of June 2009 at the Laban Theatre.
The work is inspired by people queuing. Each instrumentalist is paired with a dancer, soloing together, representing one person in a queue. As the piece progresses frustration and impatience builds; and gradually the three individuals begin to lose their personality, they become one frenzied mass. Order turns to chaos, emotions spiralling out of control. Yet before long the fire is extinguished and they return to the queue, and to themselves.
