The Music Center opens its 2018-2019 dance season with the Los Angeles premiere of Company Wayne McGregor’s Autobiography (October 5-7, 2018), a contemporary dance portrait that fuses science and the human form.
Known for choreography that examines life through the experience of the body, British choreographer and director Wayne McGregor CBE based Autobiography on the sequencing of his own genome, compiling 23 different sequences that unfold in different ways at each performance. McGregor uses a computer algorithm to determine the selection and order of the 23 sections prior to each performance, ensuring audiences will experience a performance that will never be repeated. Balanced with bold set design and large-scale projections synced to an electronic score, Autobiography interrogates the body as archive through genetics and movement.
