Reggie Wilson is an orchestral entrepreneur who worked on Star Trek in 2009. Previously, he worked with the film`s composer, Michael Giacchino, on the films Sky High, Mission: Impossible (which, like Star Trek, was directed by J.J. Abrams) and Ratatouille.

Live voice -Original composed by Reggie WilsonTraditional live voices arranged by Reggie WilsonSon Designed by Dave Synder Assistant to engineer Matt HallChoreographic advisory: Phyllis Lamhut Math/Fractal Symmetry Consultant: Jesse Wolfson Wilson primarily signed orchestras for Buena Vista. In this capacity, he worked on many films produced by the Walt Disney Company, including The Lion King (with the voices of Whoopi Goldberg and Madge Sinclair), Mulan (with the voices of Miguel Ferrer, Eddie Murphy, Freda Foh Shen and George Takei), The Emperor`s New Groove (with the voice of John Fiedler), The Jungle Book 2 (with the voices of Tony Jay and John Rhys-Davies), Chicken Little (with vocals by Wallace Shawn and Patrick Stewart) and the aforementioned Sky High and Ratatouille. Through travel and ethnographic research, Wilson integrates the performance practices of the African diaspora into his choreography, updating the mid-century performance research methodology of Zora Neale Hurston, Katherine Dunham and Pearl Primus. At the same time, he freely borrows movement material and means of composition from a wide variety of sources, blurs the distinction between black and modern dance, and challenges viewers to recognize the global circulation of American and African cultures. Wilson urges us to rethink the transnational circulation of modern dance, as his encounters with Phyllis Lamhut, Ohad Naharin, Noble Douglass and Andreya Ouamba call for a global history of dance and not stories based on a single nation-state or subculture.
