Cutting-edge design is combined with radical choreography in a dazzling piece for ten dancers.

Background

Wayne McGregor’s anatomy-defying choreography and innovative approach across dance, science, film, music, visual art and technology has fuelled a string of unique works. FAR is no exception. Taking inspiration from Flesh in the Age of Reason (FAR) by Roy Porter, which explores the relationship between body and soul in the 18th century, it was created for Wayne McGregor | Random Dance in 2010. Since its premiere, FAR has toured round the world.

The piece is staged in a mesmerizing environment of shadow and light created by rAndom International and Lucy Carter. McGregor's ground-breaking choreography is set to a haunting score by critically-acclaimed composer Ben Frost, with compelling designs by Moritz Junge and Ravi Deepres.
