REcode

REcode is Combination Dance‘s professional dance work explaining cutting edge medical research into cancer treatment, presented at at free public events in 2015.

Created with support from Imperial College London 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 Dr 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 was presented at a number of public events including the Imperial Festival 2015 (See photos from that here) and the The National Physical Laboratory in Teddington.

Following a research project and a series of pilot performances in 2013 under the project name Code (read more about that here), 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.
