The Nature of Why, commissioned by Unlimited, merges dance and live music into an epic performance that brims with emotion and physical beauty. The show features a cinematic live-score from Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, an ensemble of musicians from the British Paraorchestra and four extraordinary dancers.
Theatres were transformed into a site of discovery, as dancers and musicians moved as one in an attempt to erase the divides between musician and dancer, performer and audience.
This world premiere takes inspiration from the unconventional curiosity of Nobel prize-winning theoretical physicist Richard Feynman, and his search for meaning in the world around us. The Nature of Why promises to be an up-close-and-personal dance experience like no other.
The Nature of Why is choreographed by Caroline Bowditch (Adventures of Snigel, Falling In Love With Frida), conducted by Charles Hazlewood, with direction by Caroline Bowditch and Charles Hazlewood.
