Notes & Reviews:

The diversity of Wayne McGregor's astonishing talent is demonstrated through Chroma, Infra and Limen, each created for the Royal Ballet, for whom he is resident choreographer. Intimate yet universal, light yet dark, frenetic yet lyrical, McGregor pursues his passion for exploring the inner workings of the human body and mind, his many-layered and beautiful dances providing visual, sensual and kinesthetic stimulus for the viewer. Filmed in high definition and recorded in true surround sound.

Given the unusual and challenging backdrops of these ballets, the videographers have done a fabulous job of capturing the dance experience and bringing it home to the audience. There is a good balance between panoramas and close ups. Except for Chroma, the other ballets have a largely dark stage. The highlighting of the dancers and their highly physical choreography could not have been captured much better.
