Autobiography and Atomos by Company Wayne McGregor
Company Wayne McGregor make their Walthamstow Garden Party debut with excerpts from two dance works by multi award-winning choreographer and director Wayne McGregor.
The duet from 'Autobiography', inspired by McGregor’s DNA, fuses his dynamic choreography with Jlin’s uncompromising electronic score and costumes by artist and designer Aitor Throup (G-Star Raw).
A Winged Victory for the Sullen score the excerpt from 'Atomos', the ten dancers of Company Wayne McGregor perform in McGregor’s unique style: sculptural, rigorous, jarring and hauntingly beautiful. The costumes were created through wearable technology by Studio XO, who mapped the dancers’ biometrics and designed digital skills inspired by each dancers emotional algorithms.
