Wayne McGregor on John Travolta, technology and why everyone can dance

Posted By Maggie Lorraine, Monday, January 23, 2017

“Everyone has a personal physical signature”   Wayne McGregor

 

This interview with Wayne McGregor is not the usual dance medicine and science post, however McGregor makes some interesting comments which refer to science and which imply how strongly science relates to art. McGregor makes reference to neuroscience (3:05) and specifically how he works with neuroscientists (3:32). He uses sound to shape action in his choreography (5:54) There are other choreographers who also use their voices to create sounds to achieve a movement quality from their dancers and dance teachers sometimes use verbal sounds to trigger a particular movement dynamic when teaching.

 

He also makes observations on personal habits and neuroplasticity (23:05), suggesting that we challenge ourselves to break our own movement patterns.

 

This is an inspiring interview for dancers and creators of dance.
