Company Wayne McGregor – Autobiography

  • Show Information

For 25 years, British choreographer and director Wayne McGregor has made choreography that interrogates life through the experience of the body. Now McGregor turns his attention to the body as archive, with a dance portrait illuminated by the sequencing of his own genome. In a continuous reimagining, Autobiography is constantly reinvented; the order of the dance pieces algorithmically-assembled from a collection of 23 choreographic volumes which unfold uniquely at each performance.

McGregor is joined by an impressive set of collaborators: electronic musician and producer Jlin, designer Ben Cullen-Williams (winner of 2018 D&AD award for Autobiography’s set design), lighting designer Lucy Carter, artist and designer Aitor Throup (costumes) and dramaturg Uzma Hameed.
