Sum

The Royal Ballet's resident choreographer Wayne McGregor and contemporary experimental composer Max Richter's new chamber takes its inspiration from American neuroscientist David Eagleman's cult book of short stories 'Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives'. It is a collection of witty, clever and thought-provoking ideas on what an 'afterlife' could be. The result is an intriguing vision from McGregor, Richter and video artist Lorna Heavey of a possible journey after death, populated by computers, suburban anterooms and mind-stretching scenarios. Music is performed by a live 14-piece ensemble with electronics.
