Wayne McGregor’s critically acclaimed ballet 'Woolf Works' was inspired by the works of Virginia Woolf, and uses the music of Max Richter to explore scenes from three of her novels: "Mrs Dalloway", "Orlando" and "The Waves" — intermingled with some moments from her own life.

When "Woolf Works" made its premiere in 2015 it picked up the Critics' Circle Award for Best Classical Choreography, and the Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production. It has been described as "a compellingly moving experience" and "glowing with ambition".
