The Joffrey Ballet brings to the United States, and Chicago’s stage, for the first time Infra, a ground-breaking work by British choreographer Wayne McGregor in collaboration with artist Julian OpieInfra is accompanied by work from master choreographers William Forsythe and Christopher Wheeldon on a program titled Winter Fire at the Auditorium Theatre from February 15 to February 26. 

“Wayne McGregor’s choreography begins with the human body, and with an understanding of its potential for movement. His dance explores the relationship of the body and the mind,” explains Joffrey Artistic Director Ashley C. Wheater, “and with Infra, he considers the heart, as well.”
