Wayne McGregor has been lately probably the most mentioned and referred choreographer on Body Pixel. His work ‘Dyad 1909 (In The Spirit Of Diaghilev)’ was also featured in Body cinema during February, 2010.
It’s time to present Wayne McGregor’s 2002 Chrysalis video dance , made in the production of my favorite Arte TV channel. Mr McGregor dances in Chrysalis too.

Thanks to the fact that I’m following Icelandic composer Olafur Arnalds on Facebook I got the link to 26 minute BBC footage of Wayne McGregor‘s choreography ‘Dyad 1909 (In The Spirit Of Diaghilev)’ from 2009… I like them both, McGregor and Arnalds…
