Random Dance Company

Donald Hutera reviews 'Aeon', the latest from Wayne MacGregor's Random Dance Company, specialists in state-of-the-art multi-media work. 'Aeon' comes to London in May. Also covered is the Ricochet performance mentioned elsewhere.

Judith Mackrell is mightily impressed by Wayne MacGregor's latest multi-media work 'Aeon'. Macgregor is a hot number in the UK modern dance world at the moment and is a very distinctive dancer himself. Mackrell tells us, 'He could easily settle for being the techno boffin of dance, but instead he carries on improving as a choreographer. However technologically literate he is, McGregor's basic inspiration still seems to be the old-fashioned software of human bodies.'<P>I left it too late and couldn't get a ticket. Damn!<P> <A HREF="http://www.guardianunlimited.co.uk/reviews/story/0,3604,222076,00.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.guardianunlimited.co.uk/reviews<BR>/story/0,3604,222076,00.html</A> <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited June 02, 2001).]

<B>Random Company's Obscure Mediocrity</B><P>By Sarah Kaufman for The Washington Post who is unimpressed by one of the leading UK choreographers. <P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Here's one way to make your 30 minutes of so-so dancing look really cool. First, spend an equal amount of time keeping the stage dark and gloomy except for some unfocused 3-D projections of, oh, splotches and grids and empty corridors and stuff, and a few half-hidden figures flailing in the shadows. And don't forget the aural torture, like maybe some loud, high-pitched hissing overlaid with amplified static.<P>A half-hour later, imagine how good plain old unadorned humans will look! Dancing to violas! Wearing only their underwear! I must admit, this was a welcome sight indeed, and this was how Random Dance Company brought its single offering, "Aeon," to a close, in a performance that seemed to last as long as its name but clocked in at a little over an hour.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A10295-2001Jun1.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A>
