The Nature of Why is a joyous experience that playfully fuses theatre, live orchestral music and contemporary dance.
In this unique format, you are invited onto the Lyric stage to get nearer to the action, free to walk, wheel, or sit wherever you choose. Observe from the sidelines or get as close as you like to virtuoso musicians and breathtakingly agile dancers and curate your own unique experience of this magical performance.
Created by Paraorchestra – a ground breaking ensemble of world-class musicians with and without disabilities – in collaboration with Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory and choreographed by the award-winning movement director Caroline Bowditch, The Nature of Why takes inspiration from the visionary theoretical physicist Richard Feynman and his search for meaning in the world.
A must for lovers of spectacle, theatre, and cinematic scores, The Nature of Why has previously toured from Paraorchestra’s home city of Bristol to London’s Southbank Centre and as far away as to Perth, Australia, winning plaudits for its uniquely inclusive and uplifting format.
