I took in the edgy and ground breaking performance of DanceHouse’s third presentation in its four-show series at the Vancouver Playhouse on February 10. The show featured white-hot UK choreographer Wayne McGregor, with work for his own company, Random Dance.

The performance featured multiple and well fit dancers in an hour long journey thought a soundscape created by Coldplay and Massive Attack collaborator Jon Hopkins and award-winning composer Joby Talbot. ENTITY is a staggering blend of bodies, lights, and technology that places McGregor at the cutting edge of contemporary culture. Technically astonishing, emotionally uncompromising and hard-hitting, McGregor’s work breaks boundaries and defies categorization.
