Bringing performative art together with installations, the movement of the body is put into focus as the light plays around pushing the audience’s focus onto different elements of the performance.
Choreographed by McGregor, two dancers elegantly explore the installation communicating with one another and their reflections as the light changes. With the illumination constantly changing, those admiring the show will be bound to this dance as they are lit up presenting another version of themselves. The music, artwork and dance unify to exemplify emotion to a special score by composer Max Richter.
The complexity and depth of this performance is not one to miss, and with this being presented during his debut year as Director, McGregor is sure to capture our attention more over his residency there.
