Wayne McGregor CBE is a multi-award winning British choreographer and director, internationally renowned for trailblazing innovations that have redefined dance in the modern era. Driven by an insatiable curiosity about movement and its creative potentials, his experiments have led him into collaborative dialogue with an array of artistic forms, scientific disciplines, and technological interventions. This program will feature Atomos, a collaboration with Studio Wayne McGregor and XO. Using XOX emotional wearable technology, the collaborators mapped the dancers' biometrics to create digital skins inspired by each dancers' emotional algorithms.
“Art, music, philosophy, science, current events…when McGregor is working at his best, they come together in a magnificently stimulating whole.” —The Telegraph (UK)
