Music by composer Joby Talbot provided the dynamic first half of Wayne McGregor’s new work for his company Random Dance. Motion Detector for ‘cello and electronics provided a haunting and impatient beginning to a set that was driven by Talbot’s works for stringed instruments. This was followed up by a brief but intense interlude by St Colombe which led us to Falling , also for ‘cello and electronics and erotically realised on stage by McGregor. The miniature pulsating String Quartet No 2 was brilliantly played by the young Navarra Quartet who then displayed their skilful energy and ensemble in Manual Override for quartet and electronics. Entity tours the UK and Europe until November. Find more information about the piece and Random Dance here.
“The new dance audience wants work that sets its brain racing, not just its heart, and it's because choreographers like McGregor are meeting this demand that the future is theirs” Luke Jennings the Observer
“There is no other dance vocabulary like this…its riches of invention will still hold you riveted”. Judith Mackrell The Guardian
