Infra showcases life under the surface of a city – quite literally, as the dancing takes place underneath a work of art by British artist Julian Opie. The production for 12 dancers comprises solos, duets and group scenes, which explore human interaction – the feelings that we keep secret from the people around us. The soundscape of this emotionally affecting ballet combines the beautiful and melancholy music by Max Richter with electronic music and the sounds of everyday life.
Wayne McGregor is one of the world’s most highly respected contemporary dance choreographers. Resident Choreographer at The Royal Ballet in London, he has also collaborated with several leading ballet companies, including the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. In addition to this, McGregor has directed movement for films, such as Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Infra was originally commissioned by The Royal Ballet. The Royal Danish Ballet has rented production to FNB.
