The British Science Festival will close with a full-length screening of Atomos followed by a Q&A with multi award-winning choreographer and director Wayne McGregor.
In Atomos, bodies, movement, film, sound and light are atomised into miniature shards of
intense sensation. Taking creative points of departure from atomised film, music and
biometric data, McGregor’s choreography is woven into an intense 70 minute film,
performed by the incredible dancers of Company Wayne McGregor in his distinctive style –
sculptural, rigorous, jarring and hauntingly beautiful.
Known for his unique, tenacious questioning across the interface of art and science and
through the body and mind, multi award-winning choreographer and director Wayne
McGregor has remained at the forefront of contemporary arts for the past 25 years.
Following a highly successful national and international tour of the original stage production,
McGregor has extended and translated his acclaimed work Atomos into a unique film
experience, directed by McGregor and long-time collaborator Ravi Deepres.
Atomos features a soaring score by A Winged Victory For The Sullen, incredible lighting by
Lucy Carter, original footage by Ravi Deepres, and costumes by wearable technology
specialists Studio XO.
