Wayne McGregor co-creative directed the opening sequence of The Brit Awards in February 2016. It featured presenters Ant and Dec, and a total of 80 performers including 20 professional and Company dancers, along with 60 students and graduates from The Brit School, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year - a great opportunity for the young dancers, who performed with brilliant professionalism and talent.

Music came from triple grammy-winning producer Stuart Price, with costumes designed by British fashion designer Gareth Pugh who also designed costumes for McGregor's recent work at Paris Opera Ballet Alea Sands (Dec 2015).  Ravi Deepres, along with collaborators Stephen Spencer and Luke Unsworth created the large scale video graphics which were inspired by the stop motion photography of Etienne-Jules Marey and Britannia herself.
