McGregor: Chroma / Infra / Limen Blu-ray (The Royal Ballet)

 

  • The diversity of Wayne McGregor's astonishing talent is demonstrated through Chroma, Infra and Limen, each created for The Royal Ballet, for whom he is Resident Choreographer. In ballets that are intimate yet universal, light yet dark, frenetic yet lyrical, McGregor pursues his passion for exploring the inner workings of the human body and mind. His many-layered and beautiful dances provide visual, sensual and kinaesthetic stimulus for the viewer.

  • "Many modern dance-works lose their impact with repeated viewings, but not Chroma. In fact, it gets more exciting, absorbing and downright dazzling every time you see it."  The Telegraph

    "...Wayne McGregor's Infra: sumptuous beauty and shimmering possibility." The Telegraph

    "With the attenuating lines of Kaija Saariaho's cello concerto threading like currents through the atmosphere, the work [Limen] inhabits a dimension where time and ambition are suspended" The Guardian
