Atomos (Birmingham International Dance Festival)

Birmingham International Dance Festival, Birmingham, West Midlands, United Kingdom

Friday, June 1, 2018 - 19:30 to Saturday, June 2, 2018 - 19:30

Company Wayne McGregor will perform Atomos at the 2018 Birmingham International Dance Festival.

Ten incredible dancers perform the unique style of Wayne McGregor – sculptural, rigorous, jarring and hauntingly beautiful. He is accompanied by a team of sensational artists including longtime collaborators lighting designer Lucy Carter and filmmaker Ravi Deepres and a soaring score by neo-classical ambient composers A Winged Victory For The Sullen. XO collaborated with Studio Wayne McGregor to create the costumes for Atomos. By using their XOX emotional wearable technology, they mapped the dancers biometrics and designed digital skins inspired by each dancers emotional algorithms. Costumes in the 3D film by Moritz Junge, originally designed for the production UnDance.
