A "total work of art in which every element is equally weighted and equally impressive" (Herald Sun), Wayne McGregor’s Dyad 1929—made for the Australian Ballet and featuring an electrifying score by Steve Reich—tests the limits of classical movement in a laboratory-white set.
Choreographed to Reich's Pulitzer Prize-winning Double Sextet, McGregor's beautifully modern work is inspired by Diaghilev's legendary Ballets Russes and their audacious drive to innovate during a period of rapid technological advances. Full of "kinetic excitement," it features multiple captivating figurations—from an "absorbing" female quartet to a solo by Daniel Gaudiello that the New York Times calls "the single finest dance … by Mr. McGregor."
