Wayne McGregor 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 Wayne McGregor dancers, alongside 60 students and graduates from The Brit School - 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. 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.

Commissioned by The BRIT Awards.
