​Two Cellos investigates the two performer's relationship with their instruments, each other and their culture. Using iconic texts from Shakespeare and Simone De Beauvoir, the work highlights the contemporary societal politics of Europe (including the UK). The work also draws on the explorations that Matthew, Noémi and I undertook in preparation for the project, and as a result is a work not simply composed for two vocalising cellists but quite specifically for Matthew and Noémi.
