The Royal Ballet’s Woolf Works, directed by Wayne McGregor, expresses multidisciplinary thinking by combining choreography, technology and design through the mediums of dance, sound, film, light and space. This paper will consider how movement and visual projections are interconnected through the film sequences produced by Ravi Deepres for ‘Wolf Works.’ Each film sequence uses different technologies to express Deepres’ conceptual ideas relating to Virginia Woolf and her writing. These include the use of super slow motion technologies, architectural scanning and 3D modelling. The paper articulates a real world example of the relationship between artist, technology and performing arts. It asks how the layers of narrative, articulated through multiple mediums and expressed through a range of technology, can operate at both a dependent and also independent level.
