Company Wayne McGregor — Autobiography

WORLD PREMIERE 

The visionary contemporary choreographer Wayne McGregor has led his company onto ever more radical and challenging innovations. With Sadler’s Wells Resident Company, Company Wayne McGregor, he embarks on his boldest and most intimate collaboration to date, as he allows world-leading geneticists to sequence his entire genome.

His personal biological archaeology laid bare will dramatically alter McGregor’s viewpoint on his own life-story, tracing patterns back into the ancestral past of our species and illuminating what creates our individuality. Combining memoir, documentary and a re-processing of nature’s code through an act of human imagination, this new work charts McGregor’s adventure into his autobiography, and asks how to understand a life.
