Company Wayne McGregor and Random International: Future Self
Future Self is a performative light installation that studies human movement and investigates identity, explored by two dancers.
Future Self is a performative light installation that studies human movement and investigates identity, the relationship we have with our own image and with others. The installation created by Random International is a three-dimensional living sculpture that presents viewers with their full-length body image, three dimensionally distributed as tiny points of light. Capturing, replicating and mapping movements in light, the sculpture reacts to those who surround it with a slight delay in the depiction, offering an encounter with the self-image that is both immediate and ethereal.
Choreographed by Wayne McGregor, two dancers intensely explore the installation, communicating with one another and their own reflections through light as well as the body. Selected members of the audience are also bound together in the moment, as an illuminated presence – another version of themselves. Throughout the performance, music, artwork and the human form are unified into one immediate and emotional experience. A score by composer Max Richter accompanies the work.
Future Self is a 60-minute installation. You can arrive at the venue between 15:30 and 20:30 only. Company Wayne McGregor’s dancers will take part in each performance for around 10 minutes at 15:30, 16:30, 17:30, 18:30 and 19:30. For the rest of the time, the work can be experienced independently and among other participants.
