FAR

Description:

Inspired by the controversial Age of Enlightenment, FAR is both physical and immediate, yet intensely cerebral. 

Danced by an ensemble of ten performers, FAR is set to a haunting score by Ben Frost and features lighting by Lucy Carter, set by rAndom International and costumes by Moritz Junge.

Atomos

  • Duration:
  • People on road: 14-15
  • Freight: No freight necessary

Description:

Atomising bodies, movement, film, sound and light into miniature shards of intense sensation, Atomos is the newest work by cutting-edge contemporary choreographer Wayne McGregor.

Ten incredible dancers perform McGregor’s unique style – sculptural, rigorous, jarring and hauntingly beautiful.

He is accompanied by a team of sensational artists including longtime collaborators lighting designer Lucy Carter and filmmaker Ravi Deepres, along with costumes by the ground-breaking designers of wearable technologies, Studio XO. Neo-classical ambient composers A Winged Victory For The Sullen provide the soaring score.

Press Comments & Testimonials

"If any artist has defined the decade – it’s Wayne McGregor."

The Times

"An aesthetic born of our new understanding of the body’s capacity for speed, flexion and attack. Some may find it disturbing – McGregor certainly hopes so – but this is state of the art."

The Observer

"Wayne McGregor, one of the hottest properties in European contemporary dance."

The New Yorker

"Visceral onslaught of movement and artistic design."

The New York Times

"driving, volatile choreography so hyper-limber that it almost seems to occur at the cellular level. Every part of the body disrupted with a scientific thoroughness."
