“...an arresting new piece of music theatre.”
“An extremely eloquent and well-crafted offering by the Lebanese composer Bushra El-Turk” - on Woman at Point Zero Opera
— LE FIGARO
“the six-minute wonder that is Bushra El-Turk’s Crème Brûlée on a Tree is an unexpected little thriller that flies past using every possible sonority... the piece felt not only idiosyncratic but also – a serious rarity – properly witty.”
— David Benedict, The Arts Desk
Born in London, Bushra El-Turk has written over 60 works for the concert hall, the stage, film, TV and live art performance. Her work is often defined by the integration of musics and musicians from different cultural traditions, and the compulsion to highlight and challenge socio-cultural issues. Her works blur written and improvisational elements, forbearing the influence of her Lebanese roots all the while leaning towards the theatrical, creating works that are '...ironic...', '...arresting...' and of 'limitless imagination'.
