Inspired by the Age of Enlightenment, Random Dance's multi-sensory, multimedia work Far (Flesh in the Age of Reason) features 10 incredible dancers in a project that confronts the distortions, sensuality and feeling of the 18th century -- all set against a cutting-edging computerized pin board comprised of 3,200 LED lights. At once physical and immediate yet intensely cerebral, Far features a haunting original score by Ben Frost, a critically acclaimed Australian composer known for his post-classical electronic music. The show is created by award-winning British choreographer Wayne McGregor, hailed for his innovative approach to new technology and fast, articulate choreographic style. Learn More

The pre-show discussion with the Artistic Director was very interesting regarding the Company's formation, mission, dance style, and intended legacy. The dancing and choreography were fantastic! The music to the second piece was oppressive and greatly detracted from the wonderful dancers' performance! For the third piece on the Samba
again we loved the dancing, but this type of music does not lend itself to classical ballet. I lived in Brazil for many years and felt the music was a mismatch. Overall a great experience with a few musical adjustments to be made.
