'STYLISH AND CLEVER'

- Sarah Frater, The Evening Standard

Wayne McGregor courts complexity in Polar Sequences with dance that is fast, bizarre, intricate, and physically brutal.

In Polar Sequences, McGregor created a work that suggests alternative realities, where sensory landscapes collide with breathtakingly strange movement to build an alien universe.

Polar Sequences first appeared in a triple bill of the same name to celebrate Company Wayne McGregor's 10 year anniversary, alongside pieces by Shobana Jeyasingh and Rui Horta.

Polar Sequences was co-commissioned by The Place and PACT Zollverein.
