Wayne McGregor - Choreographer

Duration:
25 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 15 June 2012

Wayne McGregor is known for pushing boundaries in an art form usually associated with traditional entertainment.

Once known as the bad boy of ballet, he has been the resident choreographer in one of the dance world’s pillar of establishment, the Royal Ballet in London’s Covent Garden, for six years.

He continues to challenge his audiences and his dancers to the limit, constantly concocting new ways of marrying ballet with the world of science, new technology, pop music, art and architecture.

HARDtalk’s Katya Adler asks if this is why he remains the maverick inside the ballet establishment.
