'L'Anatomie de la Sensation' by Wayne McGregor

 In > art culture design

Star London choreographer Wayne McGregor returns to the Paris Opéra, after ‘Genus’ in 2007, with this new creation, inspired by the work of Francis Bacon. McGregor draws on the forms, colours and textures of the paintings to move beyond the images and explore the expressive potential of the human body. The musical inspiration for the piece is provided by the composer Mark Anthony Turnage, whose Blood on the Floor also takes its title from a Bacon painting. Also, check out McGregor’s choreography for Thom Yorke in Radiohead’s clip ‘Lotus Flower’, below, off the latest album ‘The King of Limbs’.
World premiere: 29 June, runs through to 15 July.
