Wayne McGregor's most personal work to date, Autobiography is an abstract meditation on aspects of self, life, writing, refracting both remembered pasts and speculative futures.

Running from: Thu 26 - Sat 28 Jul.

For twenty-five years, Wayne McGregor has been making choreography that interrogates life through the experience of the body, moving intelligently in space and time. His practice has been far-reaching and sought out collaborators from a diverse range of artistic and scientific fields to investigate the nature of embodied cognition.

Now McGregor turns his attention to the body as archive, as he embarks on a cycle of choreographic portraits illuminated by the sequencing of his own genome. In a continuous reimagining, Autobiography is reinvented at each performance, assembled from a collection of choreographic volumes which unfold uniquely every time.

Wayne McGregor is joined by an impressive set of collaborators: electronic musician and producer Jlin, designer Ben Cullen-Williams, lighting designer Lucy Carter, artist and designer Aitor Throup and dramaturg Uzma Hameed.
