About

Wayne McGregor | Random Dance
Wayne McGregor, Artistic Director
 
FAR
Choreography by Wayne McGregor
 
"He's doing some of the most exciting work in ballet on the planet."
--The New York Times
 
"Impressive… There is much to marvel at."
--The New York Times
 
Founded in 1992, Wayne McGregor | Random Dance became the instrument upon which the award-winning McGregor evolved his drastically fast and articulate choreographic style. The company reflects his innovative approach to new technology and incorporating animation, digital film, 3D architecture, electronic sound, and virtual dancers into the live choreography. McGregor's work was last seen at the Kennedy Center on Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in 2014 when they danced Chroma, the 2006 Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production.
 
Inspired by the controversial Age of Enlightenment, FAR mines an era that first placed "a body in question." Ten incredible dancers confront the distortions, sensuality, and feeling of the 18th century's searing contemporary sensibility to a new, haunting score by critically acclaimed composer Ben Frost. Set against a jaw-dropping computerized pin board of 3,200 LED lights, the choreography is both physical and immediate, yet intensely cerebral.

Note: This performance contains live flame effects and haze.

Performance Timing: One hour, with no intermission.
