In 2000, Wayne McGregor l Random Dance embarked on collaborations with artists and researchers from other fields including cognitive and social science, seeking new understanding of choreographic practice and thinking. Their initial projects focused on developing software to support the creative process in the rehearsal studio and studying the relationship between mind and movement.
