STUDIO WAYNE McGREGOR
Studio Wayne McGregor has opened a creative arts space for making. It is the new home for multi-award winning choreographer Wayne McGregor CBE and his company of dancers, Company Wayne McGregor, and will be a unique resource for artists and communities. Studio Wayne McGregor encompasses all of our creative output including creative collaborations across dance, film, music, visual art, technology and science; and highly specialised Learning and Engagement and Research programmes.
Based at Here East in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and designed by architectural practice We Not I, Studio Wayne McGregor comprises three dance studios, including two of the largest in London, and a series of playful spaces in which to collaborate, make and create. The first arts organisation to be based on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, it is a place for making, developing creative practice, and collaboration across arts, science, technology and research.
Alongside the creative work of choreographers, Studio Wayne McGregor hosts a number of unique visual art pieces, including works by Tatsuo Miyajima and Haroon Mirza on loan from Lisson Gallery, original artworks by We Not I, and a bespoke floor based on a work by Bauhaus artist Anni Albers with kind permission from The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.
