Thinking with the BodyA wide-ranging immersive exhibition, developed to coincide with the first performances of the choreographer, Wayne McGregor and company, Random Dance's new work, Atomos. The Wellcome Collection's autumn exhibition Thinking with the Body explores a series of long-standing interdisciplinary projects organised by McGregor's company, Random Dance to investigate creativity in dance. Featuring multimedia installation, photography, video and commissioned artworks, the exhibition explores a series of interdisciplinary projects undertaken by the company. Projected images, choreographic software and human-scale 3D animation highlight the vast range of artistic influences McGregor and his dance company have undertaken including collaborations with artist Mark Wallinger and designers rAndom International, to further investigate creativity in dance.
