McGregor courts complexity in his work with dance that is fast, bizarre, intricate, and physically brutal.
In Polar Sequences, McGregor created a work that suggests alternative realities, where sensory landscapes collide with breathtakingly strange movement to build an alien universe.
Polar Sequences appeared in a triple bill with pieces by Shobana Jeyasingh and Rui Horta.
Polar Sequences was co-commissioned by The Place and PACT Zollverein.
