Wayne McGregor | Random Dance was founded in 1992 and became the instrument upon which McGregor evolved his drastically fast and articulate choreographic style. The company became a byword for its radical approach to new technology – incorporating animation, digital film, 3D architecture, electronic sound and virtual dancers into the live choreography. In Nemesis (2002), dancers duelled with prosthetic steel arm extensions to a soundtrack incorporating mobile phone conversations; in AtaXia (2004), McGregor's fellowship with the Experimental Psychology department of Cambridge University fuelled the choreography; in Entity (2008), presented by Danse Danse in 2011, choreographic agents were imagined to a soundscape created by Coldplay collaborator Jon Hopkins and Joby Talbot; in FAR (2010), cutting edge design (rAndom International) fused with choreography mined from a radical cognitive research process; and in UNDANCE (2011), Eadward Muybridge’s pursuits of movement are brought to life on the stage.
Wayne McGregor | Random Dance is Resident Company of Sadler's Wells Theatre, London. Wayne McGregor is Resident Choreographer of The Royal Ballet.
In January 2011, McGregor was awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) for Services to Dance.
