Alex Ketley’s Trace Fulfillment defined the prevalent theme of youth in its gorgeous vitality being subjected to the troubles of its age and turmoil of our times.”

The first piece of the evening—Trace Fulfillment, by Alex Ketley—featured the most balletic movements on the program, fused with a strong reference to alternative "rave" culture. This was evident from a recurring gesture of someone pulling something from their mouth, and of a character alone, drawing on the floor. The obvious displays of ballet technique seem juxtaposed with introspective gestures, giving the piece an eerie, yet unique tone.”
