LEARNING

We specialise in dance, theatre and physical theatre workshops and developing ensemble based work. 

We carefully devise projects for people of all ages and abilities and offer a number of ways to learn and get involved, including workshops, masterclasses, and public engagement consultation. 

If you would like to book a workshop or discuss a bespoke idea, get in touch with Jess and Cat on lynnebec@gmail.com.

COMMISSIONS IN EDUCATION

Workshops

"LYNNEBEC were a joy to work with, full of creative ideas and amazing dance concepts taking the core science and adapting this for a lay audience. Audience feedback was exceptional with all of the people we surveyed wanting to see more."

ABOUT

AlgoRHYTHM! Pilot is an educational, interactive performance, using dance and theatre to bring to life analytical chemistry & steroid mass spectrometry for young people & their families.

 

Framed within the style of an 80's wrestling match, the audience enters the ring as a heavyweight competitor vs... the Algorithm. Audiences watch 3 almost identical dance routines 'test samples' and had to diagnose the patient correctly to beat the Algorithm.  


The performers were made up of the female scientists who work in this area of scientific diagnosis. They had little to no dance experience before the performance. LYNNEBEC worked with them over a period of 8 weeks to develop the performance, boost their confidence and familiarity with dance. 

AlgoRHYTHM! was commissioned by the Institute for Systems & Metabolism Research (IMSR) to form part of the annual BBC airing of the RSI Christmas Science Lecture series. It was performed in the Bramall Building (UoB) and Thinktank Science Museum, December 2019. The show reached over 200 people respectively and was well received by audiences. It tackled outdated gender stereotypes in science and little known research of steroids, mass spectrometry and cancer diagnosis.

PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT & OUTREACH

Whether it's developing ideas for events, workshops or long term projects LYNNEBEC's approach is lead by creativity and collaboration.

LYNNEBEC work to share knowledge and insight with academic staff on how best to reframe their research to reach a wider audience and create innovative science and arts collaborations.

Our partners have included The Barber Institute of Fine Arts, The Lapworth Museum of Geology, IMSR (Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research), and the University of Birmingham Public Engagement, Oxford Brookes University.

"LYNNEBEC’s approach to the project was fantastic, and the entire Lapworth Museum team found them an absolute pleasure to work with. Jess and Cat of LYNNEBEC were very careful to gauge the requirements and expectations of the Lapworth for the project [they]... communicated very effectively with the Lapworth Team, from planning right through to delivery and evaluation.

WORKSHOPS

We love creating interactive dance adventures and workshops and have now created a total of 9 for a variety of partners and commissioners.

 

In 2020, we were awarded Emergency Arts Council Funding to create AlgoRHYM From Home, an interactive dance and science series that took place on Zoom. This series created a foundation for our workshops where we aim to include: 

- An educational element/learning tool to encourage kinaesthetic learners

- Confidence and mood boosting

- Suitable for all abilities, ensuring we adapt for disabled and non-disabled audiences
