About Woolf Works
Wayne McGregor’s award-winning ballet Woolf Works is inspired by three of Virginia Woolf's landmark novels: Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves, with each of the three acts presented as a series of multi-sensory collages. McGregor is renowned for his ground-breaking choreography and collaborations and this new ballet reflects Woolf's modernist rejection of neatly ordered narrative, in favour of heightened, startling poignant perspectives.
Woolf Works is set to a new score by acclaimed British composer Max Richter incorporating electronic and orchestral music.
Winner: Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production
