"A work with grand deconstructive designs, performed with stupendous commitment by McGregor’s 10-strong Random Dance troupe, and exquisitely lit and designed, too... a prodigiously gifted artist" – Daily Telegraph

“There is material of heart-stopping beauty as well as of rugged difficulty….the choreography is remarkable and the dancers superb…often exhilarating, dazzling. As pure dance, it is some of McGregor's finest invention…” – The Guardian

“The style is clearly McGregor's own – the rippling backs, the tendril arms, the probing hyperextensions—but this is McGregor in evolution... a blazing, mysterious post-classicism” – Observer

“If any artist has defined the decade—it’s Wayne McGregor” – The Times

Wayne McGregor and his company make their long-awaited debut in Singapore with FAR. A prolific dance maker and the first contemporary dancer to hold the position of Resident Choreographer at The Royal Ballet (UK), McGregor's anatomy-defying choreography, which brings together dance, science and technology, has fuelled a string of truly unique works. FAR is no exception.

Inspired by the Age of Enlightenment, FAR mines an era where mind-body relationships were examined in a new light, a time where reason and science prevailed. McGregor translates this rich period into a dance of pure physicality, with heart-stopping tension, sensuality, beauty and ineffable delicacy.

Light and shadow (by rAndom International and Lucy Carter) are equal performers in shaping FAR's mesmerising environment. Against a pulsating circuit board of 3,200 LED lights, 10 incredible dancers confront the 18th century's searing contemporary sensibility against a haunting score by the critically acclaimed composer Ben Frost.
