Event description

Description

CELL

A dance production and interactive workshop introducing cell biology and immunology to young people

Inspired by life in the lab, the movement of cells and folding of DNA, CELL is a playful, exploration of microbiology.

Impelo, formerly known as Powys Dance, are working with a team of leading scientists from Imperial College London and the University of Oxford and award-winning artists to develop the immersive landscape of CELL.

Join us inside our inflatable world as it comes alive with movement that will make you marvel at your body’s power, quirks and hidden landscapes.

Explore human cells through intricate choreography that will enthral and astound you.

Discover the life-giving world inside your body; a universe smaller than a grain of sand.

Developed by Impelo in association with Imperial College London Outreach Department, Dr Masahiro Ono, Imperial College London Department of Life Sciences, MRC Molecular Haematology Unit, University of Oxford, Coney, Dr Anna Fenemore, Abingdon Science Partnership and access consultant Jonny Cotsen. Supported by the Arts Council of Wales, Welsh Government, the National Lottery and BOSE Professional.
