Atomos Coming To BBC Four05.04.2019
Wayne McGregor production Atomos, scored by A Winged Victory For The Sullen, will be shown on BBC Four on April 7th. Taking creative points of departure from atomised film, music and biometric data, McGregor’s choreography is woven into an intense 70 minute film, performed by the incredible dancers of Company Wayne McGregor in his distinctive style - sculptural, rigorous, jarring and hauntingly beautiful.
Known for his unique, tenacious questioning across the interface of art and science and through the body and mind, multi award-winning choreographer and director McGregor has remained at the forefront of contemporary arts for the past 25 years. Following a highly successful national and international tour of the original stage production, McGregor has extended and translated his acclaimed work Atomos into a unique film experience, directed by McGregor and long-time collaborator Ravi Deepres.
In addition to A Winged Victory For The Sullen's soaring score, Atomos features incredible lighting design by Lucy Carter, original footage by Ravi Deepres, and costumes by wearable technology specialists Studio XO. Beyond it's initial transmission, the film will be available on iPlayer for 30 days.
