Since its premiere in 2010 FAR has toured the world, picking up accolades for McGregor's ever-insightful vision, performed by ten dancers from Wayne McGregor | Random Dance. A superb score by Brian Eno collaborator Ben Frost and jaw-dropping visuals including a computerized pin board of 3,200 LED lights, make this an absolute must-see.
With FAR, McGregor takes a fascinating creative journey, drawing on a radical cognitive research process. Inspired by the controversial Age of Enlightenment and by the 18th century French philosopher Diderot's very first set of encyclopaedia, the resulting choreography is both physical and immediate, yet intensely cerebral.
“In flesh and blood lay the self and its articulations. With its own elaborate sign language of gesture and feeling, the body was the inseparable dancing partner of the mind or soul; now in step, now a tangle of limbs and intentions, mixed emotions. Organism and consciousness, soma and psyche, heart and head, the outer and the inner - all merged, and all needed to be minutely observed if the human enigma were ever to be appreciated."
' Roy Porter, Flesh in the Age of Reason
Inspired by the controversial Age of Enlightenment, FAR mines an era that first placed ‘a body in question’. Ten incredible dancers confront the distortions, sensuality and feeling of the 18th Century’s searing contemporary sensibility to a new, haunting score by the critically-acclaimed composer Ben Frost.
