Congratulations to Wayne McGregor from everyone at CriticalDance:

PRESS RELEASE

WAYNE McGREGOR CHOREOGRAPHY
AWARDED INTERNATIONAL DANCE FILM PRIZE


Wayne McGregor’s choreography for the film chrysalis ['kriz∂lis] n f won the category for Screen Choreography Over 15 minutes at Monaco Dance Screen 2002. Funded by ARTE France and produced by Heure d’été Productions, the film was directed by Olivier Megaton. Prize winners in other categories included the BBC’s The Dancer’s Body, Gilles Jobin and Roland Petit.

Based on the themes of his award-winning Trilogy series of dance works: fire; water; earth and air; chrysalis ['kriz∂lis] n f was filmed in July 2002, and features McGregor performing alongside five Random dancers – Theo Clinkard, Claire Cunningham, Laila Diallo, Darren Ellis and Odette Hughes.

“chrysalis shocked and riveted us with its progressive images of birth, life, and transformation,” said the Dance Screen judges. “Utilising techniques often seen only on MTV, it is a powerful succession of visuals that conveys the cycle of existence.”

Dance Screen is an important international competitive festival for dance films and videos. The 9th annual festival was held in Monaco in December 2002, and was organised by the International Music Centre in Vienna and Monaco Dance Forum.

Wayne McGregor, who founded Random Dance in 1992, has built himself a reputation as one of Britain’s most exciting choreographers, exploring collaborations between dance and new technology. His rich choreographic language exploits the possibilities of a range of innovative media including animation, digital film, 3D architecture, electronic sounds and virtual dancers.
