Edward Gardner joins forces with Wayne McGregor for Dance Re-imagined.

Creativity inspires creativity: a sound, a melody, or a whole composition can spark endless different imaginative responses. Tania León opens the concert with her first new commission as the LPO’s Composer-in-Residence. Ravel waltzes on the edge. And then Edward Gardner joins forces with multi-award-winning choreographer Wayne McGregor in a dazzling, cross-artform reinvention of Szymanowski’s ballet Harnasie.

The music is sensuous and explosive; McGregor responds using digitally enhanced choreographic storytelling and a spectacular mobile sculpture to open a portal to new expressive worlds. The music is in you – where will it take you?
