Xavier Le Roy

French choreographer Xavier Le Roy defies categorisation as a dance-maker, drawing on diverse influences from the worlds of science, performance art and contemporary dance. In Self Unfinished (1998), Le Roy takes the audience on a journey of metamorphosis as he transforms into an extraordinary hybrid creature part machine, part alien, part human. Employing all manner of physical devices, Le Roy creates a world of illusion that is as unsettling as it is transfixing.
