Got a Burning Question for Wayne McGregor? #MyDanceDNA is Giving You a Chance to Get Answers

Whatever your feelings about Wayne McGregor's heady, hyper-physical choreography, we can all probably agree on one thing: We'd really, really love to pick his brain. And tomorrow, Dance Umbrella, a UK-based dance festival, is giving everyone the chance to do exactly that.


My Dance DNA will be at Studio Wayne McGregor tomorrow to chat with McGregor. The digital interview series, streamed live on Facebook, was started earlier this year by Dance Umbrella in partnership with The Space (a London-based performing arts center) to dig into the influences behind some of the UK's leading contemporary choreographers. The hourlong conversations begin with an in-depth interview interspersed with archival footage from the dancemaker's body of work, but the last 15 minutes are dedicated to a Q&A session with questions sourced from the live audience and viewers on social media.

If you want your question to be considered, tweet it with the hashtag #MyDanceDNA and tune in tomorrow at 6:30 GMT (that's 1:30 EST, folks) to the Dance Umbrella Facebook page.
