A dance and science collaboration that aims to raise awareness for Motor Neuron Disease (MND)

Artistic Director Anne-Marie Smalldon has created a new dance work inspired by the work of Neuroscientist Dr Rickie Patani and his team. Combination Dance Company joins forces with Access Dance and the MND Association.

Dancers and martial arts performers delve inside a motor neurone to explain how scientists think they work. This performance combines interactive dance to join in and enjoy. Established professional artists illustrate the impact of MND on those living with the disease and their families and how MND effects the body.

We are currently developing this project for futher performance later in the year.

Feedback from previous event at Manchester Day, Impfest & NPL:

“The connection the dancers made with the audience. Emotive and well acted”

“Dance, music, words on screen very powerful”

“Serious message put across in a light hearted way”

“Brilliant – perfect combination of accessibility without losing the science”
