Wayne McGregor | Random Dance's award-winning Entity has thrilled audiences at sell-out shows around the world. Performed against a pounding soundscape by Coldplay and Massive Attack collaborator, Jon Hopkins and award-winning composer Joby Talbot, Entity is a staggering blend of bodies, lights, technology and film, which confirms McGregor’s place at the cutting edge of contemporary culture. Technically astonishing, emotionally uncompromising and hard-hitting, McGregor’s work defies categorisation.
A prolific dance maker, and the first Resident Choreographer of The Royal Ballet to come from contemporary dance, Wayne McGregor has delivered world premieres for international companies including New York City Ballet, Stuttgart Ballet and The Royal Ballet, and choreographed movies (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and music videos (Radiohead’s Lotus Flower). In January 2011, McGregor was awarded a CBE in the New Years Honours List. In 2013, he will create new works for Wayne McGregor | Random Dance and San Francisco Ballet, and a new Rite Of Spring for Bolshoi Ballet.Wayne McGregor | Random Dance is a Resident Company of Sadler’s Wells and winner of the South Bank Show Award for Dance, The International Theatre Institute’s Award for Excellence in International Dance, The Movimentos Award and the Critics’ Circle Award.
