Tree of Codes

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival, Park Avenue Armory, FAENA ART, Paris Opera Ballet, Sadler’s Wells and European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017
Presented by Aarhus 2017 and Musikhuset Aarhus

A stunning collaboration between three world-class artists, Tree of Codes is a breathtakingly rhapsodic encounter between music, dance, light and structure. Brought to life by Jamie xx’s scintillating score, Olafur Eliasson’s dazzling visual designs and Wayne McGregor’s visceral choreography, danced by members of his own company alongside the stars of the great Paris Opera Ballet, Tree of Codes is a hypnotic immersion and multi-layered theatre of the sublime.

Based on Jonathan Safran Foer's novel, this groundbreaking and audacious theatrical presentation has received standing ovations at its premiere at the Manchester International Festival and at the Armory in New York and is a not-to-be-missed event in our year of culture.
