Beschreibung

Chroma

What’s in a Name?

The word ‘chroma’ can mean either intensity of colour or freedom from white. It is the second definition that inspired choreographer Wayne McGregor and designer John Pawson. Against an expansive, stark white set, the movements and contortions, groupings and colours of the dancers’ bodies in Chroma are strikingly highlighted and exposed.

A Musical Fragment

Joby Talbot’s music for Chroma was inspired by a short musical fragment he discovered on his dictaphone late one night. From this was born a dynamic orchestral fanfare, Hovercraft, which composer and choreographer used as the basis for an electrifying score. Arrangements of Talbot’s own short pieces are woven together with his orchestrations of music by American rock band The White Stripes.
