Direct from London, multi-award-winning British choreographer, director and Royal Ballet Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor debuts his new work—a hypnotizing piece inspired by his DNA and performed by his company.

What does it mean to write your own life-story? For 25 years, Wayne McGregor, Royal Ballet Resident Choreographer has been making choreography that interrogates life through the experience of the body, moving intelligently in space and time. His practice has been far-reaching and sought out collaborators from a diverse range of artistic and scientific fields to investigate the nature of embodied cognition. Now, McGregor turns his attention to the body as archive, as he embarks on a cycle of choreographic portraits illuminated by the sequencing of his own genome. The first of these studies, Autobiography, is an abstract meditation on aspects of self, life, writing, refracting both remembered pasts and speculative futures. 

The Guardian gives Autobiography five stars, celebrating it as “a mesmerizing, inimitable show.”
