Marking the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Headlong’s director Rupert Gould integrates contributions from 19 writers in a site-specific commemoration, set in a recreation of the ill-fated Windows on the World and accessed via air-port style security.

Scott Ambler’s urgent choreography and the annual meetings of three widows, their black dresses mantled with ash, link the diverse narratives – some with a strong factual element, some fiction – relating to the legacy of the blue-sky morning when the twin towers crumbled.

A swapped day off and an eyewitness account, widespread suspicion of anyone Muslim and a brick through a shop window, a gift shop employee with a 20 per cent score rate with the emotional young women touring Ground Zero are just some of the vignettes (most of them successful) in  an engrossing but respectful memorial.
