FAR is a dynamic choreography by Wayne McGregor from 2010. It is co-created and perfectly performer by his international company dancing in the background of the moving screen covered by the electronic abstract images.
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 who previously collaborated with Brian Eno.
Staged in a mesmerizing environment of shadow and light ( designed by mulit-awar winning designa studio Random International, Lucy Carter), FAR binds cutting edge design with choreography made from a radical cognitive research process.
The performance of the Company Wayne McGregor is part of the XXII International Meeting of Performing Arts. Crossroads 2015 and as well as part of the VII Days of Dance Art organised by the Grand Theatre and National Opera in Warsaw.
A lecture by Emily Winfield on artistic practice of the UK choreographer Wayne McGregor will take place a day before, on 24 October at 19:00 (Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, ul. Jazdów 2 in Warsaw).
