This dazzling contemporary ballet, performed by Company Wayne McGregor, brings together choreographer Wayne McGregor, installation artist Olafur Eliasson and electronic composer Jamie xx to reinterpret Jonathan Safran Foer’s haunting experimental novella.

Tree of Codes takes the cryptic text as its jumping-off point for an exhilarating mash-up of dance, visual art and electronic music, performed by soloists and 10 dancers from Company Wayne McGregor, with a spectacularly colourful visual concept by artist Olafur Eliasson and a pulsating and soulful soundtrack by composer Jamie xx.

Having premiered at Manchester International Festival, this is an unmissable partnership between three visionary artists.

“★★★★★ An exhilarating, visually striking and relentlessly energetic contemporary ballet” The Stage

“Jaw-dropping... with breathtaking physical feats and visual dazzle” The New York Times

This performance contains strobe lighting.
