Company Wayne McGregor - FAR

Wayne McGregor’s anatomy-defying choreography and ground-breaking approach across dance, science, film, music, visual art and technology has fuelled a string of truly unique works. FAR is no exception.

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 haunting score by the critically acclaimed composer Ben Frost.

Staged in a mesmerizing environment of shadow and light (Random International, Lucy Carter), FAR binds cutting edge design with choreography made from a radical cognitive research process.


Venue: Pentland Theatre

"The style is clearly McGregor's own – the rippling backs, the tendril arms, the probing hyperextensions – but this is McGregor in evolution... a blazing, mysterious post-classicism" Observer

"The opening duet is one of the most purely beautiful things McGregor has made...to the extent that you almost decline to breathe, for fear of breaking its spell" Independent on Sunday

"Some of McGregor's finest inventions: one section where two women fold into origami geometries while three others drift through a counterpoint of ineffable delicacy is like no dance I've ever imagined or seen" Guardian

"A work with grand deconstructive designs, performed with stupendous commitment by McGregor’s 10-strong Random Dance troupe, and exquisitely lit and designed, too" Daily Telegraph

"It glimmers with humanity" Independent on Sunday
