An Aarhus 2017 Commission
Presented by Studio Wayne McGregor

In summer 2017, internationally renowned choreographer, Wayne McGregor, will be in residence in Aarhus with his company of world-class dancers to create a stunning new sitespecific participatory dance work. 

Following performances of the critically acclaimed Tree of Codes at Musikhuset Aarhus, McGregor and his dancers will work with more than two hundred local people of different ages, interests and cultures to create a commissioned work that celebrates the people and the city of Aarhus through dance, sound and costume. 

Studio Wayne McGregor has a 20-year history of creating high quality, innovative participatory dance performances and LightLens promises to be an exciting event for both performers and audience.

Variations of this mass dance will take place in a number of municipalities across the region, led by choreographers and dancers trained by the Studio Wayne McGregor.

The performances will take place in front of ARoS Aarhus Art Museum on 16th and 17th June at 5.45 pm, 7 pm and 8.15 pm and last about 30 minutes.
