Autobiography edits

FLow X Opera

The pinnacle of the evening is an unprecedented dance portrait Autobiography Edits, the awarded collaboration of British choreographer Wayne McGregor and the American visionary of electronic music Jlin. Autobiography Edits is an abridgement of the piece Autobiography that premiered in October of 2017. It is abstract reflective thoughts on the self, life, writing, remembered pasts and speculative futures. Jlin’s distinctive, complex and multitiered music makes the performance exceptionally captivating.

The piece is performed by ten dancers from Company Wayne McGregor with live music performed by Jlin.

Wayne McGregor is known as a pivotal reformer of contemporary dance and his groundbreaking work as a choreographer of The Royal Ballet.

Flow x Ooppera Jlin

American visionary of electronic music Jlin has gained stature in the field of experimental electronic music and gained a strong following.
