Dangerous Liaisons (1985) is a piece for six dancers, originally created for Ballet Rambert, as it was known at the time.  The music is metallic and percussive with moments that sound like distorted bells and wires twanging.
The dancers work together in trios for the majority of the time, sometimes clumping together to form a small grouping or line and at other times still working as a three but split into a duet and a solo.
