'Woolf Works' in Sky Arts nomination

Woolf Works

Trinity Laban Professor and world class choreographer Wayne McGregor has achieved yet another accolade for Woolf Works.

The ballet, which made its debut to critical acclaim in 2015, joins a thrilling line-up of nominations for the South Bank Sky Arts Awards 2016. Now in their 20th year, the Awards recognise the best of British culture, with categories ranging from Visual Art to Comedy.

Woolf Works is a triple bill, interpreting Virginia Woolf’s classic novels Mrs. Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves. Choreographed for the Royal Ballet, it is joined by Lost Dog’s Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me) and Northern Ballet’s 1984 in the Dance category. Woolf Works will be revived as part of the Royal Ballet’s winter 2016/17 season.

McGregor joined the staff of Trinity Laban in September 2013 as a development of the partnership with Company Wayne McGregor (previously Wayne McGregor | Random Dance) and was awarded Professor of Choreography in 2014. In April this year, he addressed Trinity Laban students and staff on his research-based artistic practice. Members from Company Wayne McGregor will be guest tutoring on Trinity Laban's Dance Summer School 2016.

Trinity Laban audiences can see an extract from McGregor’s FAR in our Historical Project performances on 9 and 10 June. McGregor will also be presenting his seminal 2008 piece Entity at the Laban Theatre in October. For more information, please visit our What’s On pages.
