Chroma

“Often in my own choreographies I have actively conspired to disrupt the spaces in which the body performs,” says Wayne McGregor, and this is true of this dance piece of his that examines the dramatic possibilities of the human body and how it is capable of communicating extreme thoughts and emotions. Fusing with and augmenting Joby Talbot’s original arrangements of music from the American rock band The White Stripes is a spare and minimalist set designed by architect John Pawson. Since its 2006 London premiere, Chroma has been adopted by major European and American ballet companies. In the 2021/22 season, it also becomes part of the Hungarian National Ballet’s repertoire.

"Minimalism and anarchy, chaos and classicism."

Episode 31

“Episode 31 was created in 2011 for the graduating senior class at the Juilliard School in New York City. It is a large group piece consisting of a number of fast-paced scenes created by the dancers. From an upbeat drumming sequence to a quiet comment on beauty by Eric Satie, this piece is a showcase for the young enthusiastic energy of these very athletic dancers.” This is how Alexander Ekman explains the origins of a choreography that, after its New York premiere, was also shown in Edinburgh and also made it into the repertoires of the Finnish National Ballet and the Royal New Zealand Ballet. In September 2019, it becomes a colourful part of the Hungarian National Ballet’s modern repertoire.

"From youthful enthusiasm to quiet meditation: this is all dance."
