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

‘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
