Program Notes: 

British choreographer Wayne McGregor has an almost scientific approach to movement, using his deep knowledge of how bodies move to skillfully and elegantly arrange dancers in breathtaking configurations. In Atomos, an athletic, sculptural modern dance performance, an ensemble of 10 artists mesmerizingly “atomizes” across the stage to a neoclassical score from ambient music duo A Winged Victory for the Sullen. Ethereal lighting, film, 3-D effects and costumes featuring wearable technology enhance this memorable performance, thrusting us into the future of dance.

 “For those fascinated by sheer invention, there are dance ideas, too many to count, which are simply extraordinary … McGregor’s choreographic curiosity [has a] power to thrill.” – The Guardian
