Wayne McGregor | Random Dance

Wayne McGregor worked in collaboration with hundreds of performers from across London to create a new large-scale forty-minute dance piece for the stunning location of Trafalgar Square, as part of London Festival 2012. The piece was performed on the afternoon of 14 July 2012, and involved almost 1000 participants, film footage by Ravi Deepres, a specially commissioned score by Scanner and Joel Cadbury, and costumes by Studio XO who have created stage costumes for the likes of JLS and Black Eyed Peas. The project was also the subject of a Channel 4 documentary produced by Leopard Films.

The Big Dance Trafalgar Square 2012 music is written, performed, produced and mixed by Scanner and Joel Cadbury, published by Chester Music Limited and Campbell Connelly & Co Limited.

Wayne McGregor | Random Dance was founded in 1992 and became the instrument upon which McGregor evolved his drastically fast and articulate choreographic style. The company became a byword for its radical approach to new technology and incorporating animation, digital film, 3D architecture, electronic sound and virtual dancers into the live choreography. In Nemesis (2002), dancers duelled with prosthetic steel arm extensions to a soundtrack incorporating mobile phone conversations; in AtaXia (2004), McGregor's fellowship with the Experimental Psychology department of Cambridge University fuelled the choreography; in Entity (2008), choreographic agents are imagined to a soundscape created by Coldplay collaborator Jon Hopkins and Joby Talbot (Chroma); and in FAR (2010), cutting edge design is fused with choreography made from a radical cognitive research process.

Wayne McGregor | Random Dance is Resident Company of Sadler's Wells.

The company's latest piece, Atomos, premieres at Sadler's Wells, London, 9-12 October 2013.
