With FAR, multi-award-winning British choreographer Wayne McGregor takes a particular creative journey, inspired by the controversial Age of Enlightenment and by 18th-century French philosopher Diderot’s very first set of encyclopedia. The resulting choreography is bold, immediate, lush in detail, and McGregor’s link to cognitive research adds a cerebral dimension where neural-pathways inform a spectacular scenic backdrop.

Since its 2010 premiere, FAR  has picked up accolades for McGregor’s ever-insightful vision. McGregor is renowned for his physicality-testing choreography and collaborations across dance, film, music, visual art, technology and science. He is the Artistic Director of Wayne McGregor | Random Dance, Resident Company at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London and a Resident Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. In January 2011, McGregor was awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire).
