Company Wayne McGregor

What does it mean to write your own life-story? For twenty-five years, Wayne McGregor has been making choreography that interrogates life through the experience of the body, moving intelligently in space and time. His practice has been far-reaching and sought out collaborators from a diverse range of artistic and scientific fields to investigate the nature of embodied cognition.

Now McGregor turns his attention to the body as archive, as he embarks on a cycle of choreographic portraits illuminated by the sequencing of his own genome. The first of these studies,  Autobiography , is an abstract meditation on aspects of self,  life , writing, refracting both remembered pasts and speculative futures.

Palimpsesting McGregor's choreographic imprint over personal memoir and genetic code in a continuous re-imagining,  Autobiography  unfolds uniquely for each and every performance. Life, writing itself anew.
