British choreographer Wayne McGregor’s exhilarating company returns to SF Performances with a new work being developed in McGregor’s signature process that fuses dance, art, philosophy, science, technology and current events for a deeper look at how movement embodies much more than movement. The piece is called Autobiography and is inspired in part by McGregor’s own DNA. London’s Financial Times asserts that McGregor is, “A pioneer in exploiting the links between his art and the scientific developments that have revolutionized 21st-century life.”

About San Francisco Performances
San Francisco Performances has been a leader in the Bay Area cultural scene since our founding in 1979. We have introduced hundreds of classical music, jazz and contemporary dance artists to audiences, including world-renowned performers like Yo-Yo Ma, the Juilliard String Quartet, Philip Glass, and the Paul Taylor Dance Company. With a strong curatorial vision, great artistic taste, and adventurous programming, we are the city’s premier presenter of intimate concerts, solo recitals and dance. San Francisco Performances is also recognized for introducing new artists to the Bay Area, and for providing opportunities for audiences—from those who attend our concerts, to public school students who encounter music and dance for the very first time—to engage personally with artists and gain a deeper understanding of their work.
