The diversity of Wayne McGregor's astonishing talent is demonstrated through Chroma, Infra and Limen, each created for The Royal Ballet, for whom he is Resident Choreographer. In ballets that are intimate yet universal, light yet dark, frenetic yet lyrical, McGregor pursues his passion for exploring the inner workings of the human body and mind. His many-layered and beautiful dances provide visual, sensual and kinaesthetic stimulus for the viewer.

'With the attenuating lines of Kaija Saariaho's cello concerto threading like currents through the atmosphere, the work inhabits a dimension where time and ambition are suspended.'
