Wayne McGregor collaborated with fashion designer Manfred Thierry Mugler on McGREGOR + MUGLER, a contemporary ballet that premiered at the London Coliseum in 2019. The work was performed by Bolshoi Ballet Prima Ballerina Olga Smirnova and The Royal Ballet Principal dancer Edward Watson.

“Manfred Thierry Mugler is not only a true fashion icon, but an incredible collaborator. It has been a pleasure to share energy, passion and trust throughout this new creative adventure. The process has offered new perspectives for both of us. The resulting work is unexpected, extreme and transformative.” - Wayne McGregor
