LYNNEBEC are experienced producers and facilitators. Whether it's devising a workshop, co-creating with young people or community groups, our approach is collaborative, inclusive and centred around care. We work across two strands: education and public engagement.
Our workshops focus on: dance, teaching science through dance, physical theatre, developing ensemble based work.
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 AlgoRHYTM 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

"Made me feel really comfortable in just letting go and enjoying it (and I’m not a natural
dancer)! It felt like a really safe space.”
“Fun, active, totally different.”
Whether it's developing ideas for events, workshops or long term projects LYNNEBEC's approach is led 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), University of Birmingham Public Engagement and Oxford Brookes University.

Our dancers for these performances were all scientists (14 from the University of Birmingham), none of which were trained in dance. The teaching of the dance via LYNNEBEC was excellent, took into accounts the varying dance abilities of the performers and produced a polished highly professional performance. Leaving all our performers keen to do more.
