An online repertoire and creative programme centred around Wayne’s piece the Living Archive, created using an AI choreographic tool developed in collaboration with Google, will be a starting point for both masterclasses.
Participants of masterclasses will have an opportunity to be taught company repertoire, learn material taken from ten solos created by Studio Wayne McGregor as part of the development of the tool and the opportunity to use the AI tool to develop material and gain an insight into Wayne’s creative practice. The programme will be delivered by a team of McGregor’s dancers.
‘Studio Wayne McGregor delivered a fantastic virtual project for our BA2 students over three intensive weeks of rehearsals during the lockdown in June. The project challenged the students through an innovative and rigorous approach to movement at a time when this was difficult to achieve. The project was one of the highlights for our students, leading to a new confidence in themselves as dance artists. The whole creative team provided an outstanding learning experience, fully engaging our students at all levels. We couldnt have hoped for more.’ — Stephanie Schober, course leader.
