The New York Premiere of Wayne McGregor’s Borderlands will take place on October 16 at the David H Kock Theater. The work was premiered earlier in the year by San Francisco Ballet to open the company’s 2013 season.

Set to an electronic score by Joel Cadbury and Paul Stoney, Wayne McGregor’s arresting Borderlands is a fierce, driving study in movement inspired by the work of contemporary visual artist Josef Albers. Upon its world premiere in January 2013, the San Jose Mercury News said, “Borderlands offered dancers extreme physical challenges, and stunning moments abounded.” For more information, visit the San Francisco Ballet website

Cadbury is best known for his work as a singer/songwriter and producer. Notably he has collaborated with the UK bands South and Unkle and artists such as Beth Orton and Nick Hemmings. His music for film includes “The Killer Inside Me” directed by Michael Winterbottom, and “Soul Boy.” For more information visit the composer's website.
