“There is material of heart-stopping beauty … the choreography is remarkable and the dancers superb… often exhilarating, dazzling. As pure dance, it is some of McGregor’s finest invention ... like no dance I’ve ever imagined or seen.” Judith Mackrell, The Guardian (London / Londres)
FAR, based on 18th-century theories of the body, mind and soul, is one of the most purely beautiful pieces Wayne McGregor has made. Glimmering with humanity, it is physical and immediate, high-speed and relentless, yet intensely cerebral. Ten superb dancers – sinuous and endlessly torqued – engage in a series of cryptic, vivid encounters accompanied by a seamless Ben Frost score. The synthesis of sound, jaw-dropping visuals, dazzling lighting and powerful, compelling movement is simply flawless, a potent distillation of ideas given corporeal form. Following the company’s astounding appearance three years ago with Entity, FAR is an absolute must-see!
Performance is approximately 1 hour with no intermission.
