ACTION POTENTIAL

ACTION POTENTIAL is a new dance and science collaboration that aims to raise awareness for Motor Neuron Disease (MND)

Choreographer Anne-Marie Smalldon is creating a new dance work inspired by the work of Neuroscientist Dr Rickie Patani and his team. Combination Dance Company joins forces with Dance Consulting, the MND Association and Manchester Metropolitan University. 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.

Our most prestigious performance to date was at the Science Museum Lates on the 25th January 2017.

REcode

Dance Consulting is working in conjunction with CDC (Combination Dance Company) to present their new professional work "REcode", explaining cutting edge medical research into Cancer treatment. 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. REcode is choreographed by CDC's Artistic Director, Anne-Marie Smalldon, with a cast of outstanding dancers. This performance is being held at NPL, Teddington on the 17th July 2015.
