Merging dance and live music into an epic performance, The Nature of Why brims with emotion and physical beauty. Commissioned by Unlimited, the show features a cinematic live-score from Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, an ensemble of musicians from The British Paraorchestra (the world’s only large-scale ensemble for professional disabled musicians) and four extraordinary dancers.
Taking inspiration from the unconventional curiosity of Nobel prize-winning theoretical physicist, Richard Feynman, the show explores his search for meaning in the world around us through nine distinct and emotive movements.
‘When you are asking ‘why?’, you have to be in some framework that allows something to be true.’ Richard Feynman
Dancers and musicians move as one, erasing the divides between musician and dancer, performer and audience; resulting in an up-close-and-personal theatrical experience like no other.
The Nature of Why is composed by Will Gregory, choreographed by Caroline Bowditch, conducted by Charles Hazlewood, and directed by Caroline Bowditch and Charles Hazlewood. It is produced by the charity The Paraorchestra and Friends
