The Nature of Why

Thu 14 Feb 2019

Merging dance and live music into an epic performance, The Nature of Why brims with emotion and physical beauty. Commissioned by Unlimited, the show features a cinematic live-score from Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, an ensemble of musicians from The British Paraorchestra and four extraordinary dancers.

Taking inspiration from the unconventional curiosity of Nobel prize-winning theoretical physicist, Richard Feynman, the show explores his search for meaning in the world around us through nine distinct and emotive movements.

'When you are asking 'why?', you have to be in some framework that allows something to be true.' Richard Feynman

Dancers and musicians move as one, erasing the divides between musician and dancer, performer and audience; resulting in an up-close-and-personal theatrical experience like no other.
