In this last episode, Wayne McGregor talks about his future projects, including his first full-length piece for Paris Opera Ballet, his first virtual reality ballet, his collaboration with Mark-Anthony Turnage, and Big Dance Trafalgar Square for the 2012 London Olympics. Wayne describes his involvement in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, opera, and with Dame Judi Dench and Andrew Lloyd Webber. We also learn about Akili, the retreat on an island along the coast of Kenya which he founded in 2006, and the significance of receiving a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire).
