Thinking with the body: Mind and movement

Wayne McGregor, Random Dance

Wayne McGregor | Random Dance, Wellcome Collection London, UK
Wayne McGregor and his dance company are known for their fast and articulate choreographic style and for their radical approach to new technology. McGregor has always been a collaborator; his creative processes build on a wide range of interests, conversations, and perspectives. For the past 10 years, he and his dancers have worked closely with cognitive scientists interested in exploring different aspects of the choreographic process as new dance works evolve. This exhibition, staged during the run-up to the first performances of his new work ‘Atomos', offers a glimpse at some of the questions the scientists are interested in exploring and how their research informs relationships between McGregor, his dancers and the scientists.
