Please watch these films and read about our dance & science tour “Recode” performed in spring and summer 2015 raising awareness for leading cancer research scientist from Imperial College in London.
The blog is written by our resident film and media artist Luke Todd.
We are very grateful to all involved our wonderful artists, venues, managers, funders, scientists, technicians and the audience participants who helped make this such a success. Our favourite quote was from a 15 year old audience members who simply said “Science = Hope”

Created with support from Imperial College London and Cancer Research UK, the dancers transform molecular biology into entertaining dance, whilst also reflecting the experiences of those who have been treated. The scientific content is based upon, and was developed with support from Professor Michael Seckl and Ana Costa-Pereira at Imperial College London and their team of leading researchers.
Whilst conveying complex science simply through movement, REcode reflects upon the importance of ongoing improvements in different types of cancer treatment and prognosis to those affected and the hope they each hold.
REcode is being presented at other public events in the summer including a free event at The National Physical Laboratory in Teddington on July 17.
Following a research project and a series of pilot performances in 2013 under the project name Code, REcode was developed from extensive research with Imperial College London and a creative team of dance artists. This project has been supported Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts.
