Wayne McGregor CBE is a multi-award winning British choreographer and director, internationally renowned for trailblazing innovations that have redefined dance in the modern era. Driven by an insatiable curiosity about movement and its creative potentials, his experiments have led him into collaborative dialogue with an array of artistic forms, scientific disciplines, and technological interventions. This program will feature Atomos, performed by Company Wayne McGregor; a collaboration between McGregor, A Winged Victory for the Sullen (music), Lucy Carter (lighting design), Ravi Deepres (film) and Studio XO (costume design). Using XOX emotional wearable technology, Studio XO mapped the dancers' biometrics to create digital skins inspired by each dancers' emotional algorithms.
