L'Anatomie de la sensation
POUR FRANCIS BACON
WAYNE MCGREGOR

Presentation
Wayne McGregor has steeped himself in the work of Francis Bacon, finding in his strange, visceral universe an echo of his own choreographic research. He has been inspired by the shapes, colours and textures of Bacon’s paintings to explore, not merely the visual impact, but the expressive potential of the dancer’s body, pushing his interpreters to new limits. This piece was conceived for a work by the composer, Mark Anthony Turnage: Blood on the Floor, also named after a painting by Bacon. The Ensemble Intercontemporain and four jazz soloists accompany the dancers in a space evoking the artist’s tryptich paintings and structured by the minimalist architect John Pawson,. This strong and profoundly original piece was first performed in 2011 by the Paris Opera Ballet and stands out as one of the major works presented this season.
